The Spanish Craze: American (&Texas) Discover the Arts & Cultures of the Hispanic World

The Spanish Craze: American (&Texas) Discover the Arts & Cultures of the Hispanic World

Presentation by Richad L. Kaga, Ph.D., Academy Professor, Author O. Lovejoy Professor Emeritus of History, John Hopkins University. 

At the close of 19th century, the U.S. and Spain went to war.  Paradoxically, that same era ushered in new interest in Spanish, and more broadly, Hispanic culture throughout the United States.  This "craze" for Spain manifested itself in art and in architecture, as well as literature, fashion, movies, music, and design.  This illustrated lecture explores the origins of this 'craze', the factors that fueled it, and teh extent to which Texas participated in the 'discovery' of Spain.
