Value: half unit


Prof. Helen Graham


Taught through weekly lectures and weekly follow-up seminars


Best Essay of 2 (30%) and 2-hour Exam (70%)

This course adopts a thematic approach within a broadly chronological framework. It explores state and society under the rule of General Franco, and traces the processes of social, economic and cultural change which precipitated the crisis of the dictatorship and Spain's transition to democracy. The transition is explored in detail in both domestic and international contexts. The course also looks at Spain's institutional integration into western Europe (EEC and NATO); the politics of the PSOE in power (from 1982); and social/cultural developments in liberal democratic Spain.
