This course assumes no knowledge of Spanish language nor previous study of history. The course aims to give you the tools to understand critically the forces, processes and events that have shaped contemporary Spain, and to analyse a stimulating variety of source materials. The course aims also to help you place Spanish history in a wider European and global perspective. It is designed to be both a stand-alone introduction to the history of Spain, and also to serve as a foundation for more advanced study at levels 2, 3 and 4.
