DANC 336 - The Politics and Poetics of Flamenco

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, CD

How did the image of a woman in a red ruffled dress come to represent flamenco? This course will address this question by tracing flamenco’s complex roots in southern Spain, where marginalized peoples formed this fold-art form, to flamenco’s presence on the global market. We will explore how flamenco serves as a living archive of large socio-political tensions in Spain and why the woman in the red dress fails to represent the complexities of flamenco’s cultural history. Course taught in English.
