Course Description

”Vamos a la playa” (Righeira)

Maybe you are reading this whilst lying on a beach at a marvellous holiday destination. Maybe you are reading this and wish you were at a beach rather than wherever you are.

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? It becomes a contested battleground of ideologies as well as life plans.
