ABOUT THE DIGITAL MUSEUM OF HISPANIC CULTURE

As the final project for SPAN 304 (Culture and Civilization of Latin America) and SPAN 305 (Culture and Civilization of Spain), students create digital museum "exhibits" about keys aspects of Hispanic culture. While the museum is dedicated to Hispanic culture, the diversity of Latin America demands the inclusion of countries like Brazil and Haiti, for example, which are not considered "Hispanic" cultures.
