Program Description:

FLPA SPAIN
Walking Spain's Camino


 


This Intersections course examines the history, culture, and literature of Spain and will focus on the concept of religious pilgrimage from interdisciplinary perspectives. Students will take a journey with personal and spiritual dimensions by walking el Camino de Santiago, the Way of Saint James. This experiential component, incorporating travel to Spain, replicates the Medieval Christian pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, which still attracts tens of thousands of pilgrims every year. Although we will start and finish coursework in Omaha, we will walk parts of the pilgrimage route in Spain.
