"Crisis" has become a buzzword, an umbiquitous term that tries to explain contemporary historical conditions.  Nevertheless, it is difficult to pin down the time frame of crisis and its nature: when does a crisis begin and when does it end?  Is it an historical event or an enduring condition of life?  In this course we will look at the crisis as an object of knowledge in the context of Spain by exploring its different manifestations (financial, economic, political, ecological crisis) and its mode of expression (literature, journalistic essays, films, art).  Materials will include works by Janet Roiman, Reinhart Koselleck, Rafael Chirbes, Pablo Gutierrez, Cristina Pallarás, Isabel Coixet, Alex de la Iglesia.
