345 María Goicoechea Teaching Digital Literature in Spain Reading Strategies for the Digital Text 1 Introduction The convergence with Europe and the information technologies are trans- forming the teaching of literature in the Spanish universities. The inclusions of digital literature as a new subject in the university curricula is still, however, a rarity. In the following pages I will draw a picture of the state of affairs in Spain regarding the teaching of digital literature, and I will share some teaching strategies I have implemented in my everyday

9. Recruiting from Spain – a qualitative insight into Spanish-German labor migration projects PHILLIP MEINARDUS ABSTRACT This paper focuses on the institutional framing of migration processes, with par- ticular emphasis on the strategy and implementation in the recruitment process. With regard to demographic changes in Germany, a change of mentality can be noted, admitting that not only the achievements of the migrants, but also the ac- complishments of German society are of importance. The main research question was to identify the decisive

Muslims in Spain: Visions of the Past and Present Experiences GEMA MARTÍN MUÑOZ Spain’s democratic Constitution of 1978 established a non-denominational state that nevertheless was compelled to confront a historical context in which Cathol- icism had played a significant role in defining Spain’s official national identity; an identity that resulted from a long historical process that took off under the reign of Isabel and Ferdinand, the so-called Catholic Kings.1 On the one hand, mainstream historiography established the idea that Spain was the

The Parent Trap Mothers and Others in the Spanish Picaresque ANNE J. CRUZ Although the genealogy of the Spanish picaresque novel has been ascribed to various literary traditions, such as St Augustine’s Confessions and saints’ lives, and as a forebear of the bildungsroman or formation novel (Stone 1998: 371), its purpose as social satire has never been in doubt (cf. Guillén 1971). While the novel’s main protagonist often assumes a solitary position alienated from socie- ty, the plots themselves abound with multiple characters, beginning with the pícaro

Between Subject, Object, and Abject Masculinities in the Spanish Picaresque GREGOR SCHUHEN The researches on conceptions of masculinity in the picaresque novel are more than scarce so far. One might get the impression that the picaresque fictional universe is as androcentric or as “overpoweringly patriarchal“ (Cruz 1999: 99) that further studies obviously do not seem to promise intriguing insights into the gendered order of the picaresque mundus inversus. This impression – wrong or right – corresponds perfectly with Bourdieu’s statement on the

Culture, Identity and Civilisation: The Arabs and Islam in the History of Spain Fernando Rodríguez Mediano A few years ago, Sylvain Gouguenheim, in his book Aristote au Mont Saint- Michel: les racines grecques de l’Europe chrétienne, proposed a particular reading of medieval European cultural history and the contribution made to it by Arab culture. Contrary to the idea that an important part of the knowledge of the classical world had been preserved thanks to medieval Arabic translations that were eventually transmitted to Europe, Gouguenheim

8. The role of intermediaries in Spanish emigration: past and present DIRK GODENAU ABSTRACT This chapter focusses on the role of private and public intermediation in Spanish labor migration to Germany. It takes stock of the scarce empirical evidence available on migration intermediaries in the current wave of Spanish emigration to Germany and compares this profile of intermediation under conditions of free movement with the Gastarbeiter scheme used in the 1960s. Without the selec- tive role of borders, intermediation along the migration process
