Course Description

“Vamos a la playa” (Righeira)
We have endured restrictions because of the pandemic for over a year now, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and a holiday might no longer be an impossibility. Maybe this is the course to start your daydreaming about a sunny holiday at the beach?
Beaches fuel our imagination of exotic paradises and untouched cultures. They are the threshold between the ocean and the land beyond the dunes, the sand. In this course we will discuss literary texts as well as cultural practices that construct the beach as a space of decision: where to go from here? Employing theories such as cultural geography, gender and narratology, we will analyse this contested battleground of ideologies as well as life plans.
