Arturo Giraldez (Spanish)

I teach classes at the Modern Languages and Literatures Department and the School of International Studies.

In the Modern Language Department I teach Advanced Composition, Spanish Civilization, and Language Classes. I try to convey in my classes the importance of learning a foreign language as a way to understand other people's cultures and histories.

Learning a foreign language is learning a new intellectual perspective on the world and that is what makes learning languages an exciting experience.

In my World History Class I try to show the students that history is essential to understand the present. I place social and political events in a history of ecology framework to understand the development of societies in time.

In Globalization, the US and the World I place the economic and social history of the US in relation to the history of global connections and interactions from an ecologic and economic history frame of reference.
