Social Resistance and Cultural Critique in the Postwar Period in Spain

SPA 318

Info tab content
This undergraduate seminar seeks to examine social and cultural resistance to the Franco regime in the first twenty five years of its existence. The period that we will cover is 1939- el año de la victoria- through 1964- the year in which the Franco Regime celebrated its "XXV Años de Paz."Through the lens of lo social we will examine diverse cultural production, including poems, novels, films, and theatrical productions, that question both the discourse of peace proffered by the dictatorial regime of Francisco Franco and the common assertion that only a cultural desert existed in postwar Spain.
