Atlantic Constellations: Migration, Exile, Second Slavery

HISTORY 542S

This seminar explores the collective identities of migrant and exiled Spaniards away from the homeland. They remained on the move in large numbers for two centuries, immersing themselves in the cultures of their places of arrival while giving their preexisting persuasions a new life overseas. We’ll consider four main themes: 1) Ibero-Atlantic diasporas since the mid-nineteenth century; 2) white slavery and second slavery in Cuba; 3) Spain's unfinished revolutions; and 4) the career of María Zambrano, an expatriate intellectual who turned her banishment from Spain in 1939 into the enabling condition of her radical revision of Western philosophy. Prerequisite: 300-level or above Spanish course that meets foreign language (FL) requirement or graduate standing. Instructor: Rodríguez García
