The aim of this subject is to approach and analyze the main lines in current Spanish literature on history and memory from a linguistic, historical and literary perspective in order to identify the themes and motifs addressed. The memory of the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent post-war period constitute a prominent theme of this chapter with its permanent inquiry about its causes, development and consequences, as well as the reflection about the place of personal and collective memory of the events and the responsibility that as citizens we must assume. On the other hand, current Spanish literature has reflected other issues such as the Spanish transition or the vision of international conflicts that can be extrapolated to the historical reality of the country. The student will develop a critical attitude towards public and private discourses.
The competences that the student will acquire are:
1. To know the main literary manifestations around historical memory in recent Spanish literature.
2. To develop the ability to complement and correct the contents on the representation of history and its memory in the middle and higher levels of Spanish language teaching.
3. To recognize and analyze the diverse literary strategies in the fictional reconstruction of fragmented historical memory.
4. Construct a critical discourse of their own that integrates the contents studied and promotes the application of the methodology used.
5. Incorporate these issues to their knowledge of language and culture, to the programming and elaboration of didactic materials, as well as to the writing of cultural proposals in this field.
