  • Overview


    This Course is based on two fundamental objectives: firstly, in theoretical sessions, to provide students with an introduction to Sevilla's key monuments and customs, thus enabling them to become familiar with their historical and artistic reality; secondly, to ensure that those same participants in the Course get to know these monuments directly, even propitiating thereby their experiencing of them.


    Classes - attendance to which is compulsory - will be interactively theoretical and practical, combining theoretical explanations of syllabus content - using as back-up screenings based on creative productions and documentaries - with reflexion and debate involving students' reactions to the visual content being projected, as well as to the texts recommended for reading. Likewise, each class session will be linked to a visit to the monument being dealt with at the time.
