Making Modern Spain 1840-1939


This course offers an overview of the cultural politics pertaining to modern Spain, from the late nineteenth century through to the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939 and its aftermath.

We focus on the intersecting strands of gender, class and nation, in relation to historical, social and cultural processes. Issues addressed are liberal constructions of the nation, empire, working-class movements and sociopolitical margins, nationalisms and the rise of Spanish fascism, and historical memory.
