      The Other Night School: Crazed for Spain: Hollywood’s Love Affair with “Lo Español”

      Dr. Jeffrey Zamostny, assoc. professor of Spanish The cinema was born in the same decade as both the Spanish-American War of 1898 and a vogue in the U.S. for all things stereotypically Spanish. Over the next thirty years, Hollywood churned out dozens of films featuring matadors, gypsies, bandits, and flamenco dancers played by the likes of Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo. Join us as we explore how Spaniards promoted and resisted Hollywood’s Spanish fetish, both at home in Spain and in the U.S. The Other Night School is a lecture series in partnership with Hills & Hamlets Bookshop, the University of West Georgia College of the Arts and Humanities, UWG School of the Arts, and AIR Serenbe. University professors give talks on topics of interest—historical, intriguing, and curious—in a setting relaxed and dynamic. Following the lecture is a conversation with the speaker, a question-and-answer discussion paired with wine and cheese.
