Shadows of the People: Aesthetics and Politics in Modern Spain

SPA 560

Info tab content
This course explores the intersection between aesthetics and democracy in Peninsular modernity. It focuses on the struggles for political and symbolic representation led by emerging subjects, imagined collectivities, and subaltern communities, as well as on the role played within by some writers and artists throughout the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. We examine the relationships between culture and democracy in a long-term perspective, from the 1873's First Spanish Republic to the normalization of Francisco Franco's Dictatorship, paying attention to the dialectics between subalternity and emancipation.
