Cecilia Heydl-Cortinez - Professor of Spanish, Penn State York

Book Title: Encyclopedia of Contemporary Spanish Culture

Author: Eamonn J. Rodgers

Book Description:

I have been teaching Span 130 (the culture of Spain) for many years at York campus. The reason for choosing this book (an updated version of the 1999 edition) is that I believe it will be a very useful tool for students in my introductory culture course. The author of this encyclopedia is a renowned scholar who has published widely on Nineteenth century Spanish literature. Students and other interested readers will be able to look up basic information on important artists, literary movements, historical events, government, and a variety of cultural issues related to Spain. This encyclopedia also provides a helpful list of further readings on many of its topics. I am sure that the addition of this book to Penn State libraries will prove to be a beneficial resource for our students.
