History, Memory, Truth: Cultural Capital in Spain's Memory Wars
Mar 6, 2013
Oberline College Professor Sebastiaan Faber, Oberlin College will discuss the "memory wars" happening in Spain. Since the late 1990s, Spain has seen a series of public disputes over the historical memory of the Second Republic, the Spanish Civil War, Francoism and the Transition. Two main issues have been at stake: the representation of the violent 20th-century past - how to tell the story and who should tell it - and the relationship that today's Spain should have with that past. Sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and the Center for Arts in Society.
