The module builds on the knowledge of Galician language and culture imparted in the level-2 module, developing students’ awareness of, and ability to use, sophisticated patterns of language and speech, whilst extending their analytical skills and understanding of Galician culture through study of a selection of canonical literary texts. Activities include both practical oral and audio-visual exercises in the Galician language, designed to familiarise them with a range of registers and styles, and more formal translation work. Literary study is incorporated in the programme in a series of seminars, in which students give presentations and discuss a range of texts, in prose and verse, drawn from the period between the 19th-century Galician cultural revival (Rexurdimento) and the present day.
Assessment: Coursework (35%); Oral Exam (15%); Aural exam (10%): Written Exam in May (40%).
Contact Hours; 1 x2-hour language workshop, and 1 x 1-hour conversation class per week, in both Semesters.
Convener: Ms. Paloma Serrapio.
