Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: Students must demonstrate the ability to discuss in class the ideas of the texts and the context, do a number of in-class presentations, and they must write 2 research papers, one on each author, with grammatical precision and rigorous research. Goals: Students should demonstrate the ability to analyze literary texts, using the text as well as the aesthetic, political, historical, and philosophical context in which the work was produced.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE COURSE OFFERS AN EMOTIONAL AS WELL AS AN INTELLECTUAL VIEW OF THE DIFFICULTIES OF RELIGIOUS AND CULTURAL REFORM, BOTH FROM INSIDE AN INSTITUTION CENTRAL TO SPAIN IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY (THE CHURCH OF ST. TERESA) AND FROM OUTSIDE A NUMBER OF INSTITUTIONS IMPORANT IN THE XIX CENTURY AFTER THE ENLIGHTENMENT (JOURNALISTIC VIEWS OFEDUCATION, FOREIGN INVESTMENT, THE MIDDLE CLASS, ETC.). COMPARISONS TO PROBLEMS OF REFORM IN CONTEMPORARY TIMES WILL BE MADE.
