This course aims to present key aspects of the growing diversity of Hispanic culture. Since the Renaissance, it has played a key role in the making of the modern world. The course covers topics that speak of its diversity like: what conforms the Hispanic culture and why it is important historically, the role played by royal women in the patronage of the arts to conform one of the most important art collections in the world, the expressions of queerness in Hispanic literature throughout history, the current influence of music in Spanish due to artists like Bad Bunny and Rosalía or the most common historical misconceptions that circulate due to myths. The result will be a better understanding of the aspects that have contributed to making Hispanic culture a world phenomenon.
