This is a language course which presents in a critical way some manifestations of Spanish Pop culture, emphasizing informal cultural aspects that hardly have a reference in the canonical understanding of culture. The materials of the course will be read, commented and discussed during the class. Students’ participation is expected, especially through debates after every topic. Additionally, two formal presentations should be done, either about one of the topics of the syllabus or about any other topic that the student is interested in. Both presentations should be about the same topic (either about one Spanish of Taiwanese topic). The first one will be descriptive. The second one discursive (reaching a conclusion by comparison), so it is advised to compare a Taiwanese pop topic to a somehow related Spanish pop one.
