This conference is meant to provide a balance of research thus far and a framework of discussion for the presentation of work in progress. We are of course interested in the fields that have drawn the greatest attention, but shall likewise focus on the issues raised by the new generations of researchers, novelists, literary critics and artists. That is why this is meant to be a comprehensive conference: anybody interested in saying anything about the Spanish Civil War is invited to present a paper and discuss it at this conference.
CONTENTS OF THE PAPERS
Papers are to be presented, complete and in their final version, with a maximum 20 pages (42,000 characters), processed using Word. Illustrations and photographs (if any) should be sent compressed (15 Mb maximum).
Papers must be adjusted to the topics set out in the following areas of discussion:

2) Politics, war, and foreign intervention.
3) Society, economy, everyday life.
4) Speeches, myths, images, art, propaganda.
5 Victims, repression, exile.
6) Legacies and memorials of the Spanish Civil War.
Within these general areas, papers may focus on a wealth of specific topics.
