Cultural Representations in the Spanish Transition
41st Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
This panel seeks to explore the roles cultural practices played in the Spanish transition to democracy. How did popular participation figure into the design of the future democracy and its cultural representations? What roles did cultural practices play in the populace’s progressive disenchantment with the transitional process? Is collective memory of the transition maintained by its cultural representations? The panel calls for papers that address these and related questions and that provide examples of cultural practices dealing with the Spanish transition. Send one-page abstract in Spanish or English to: David Rodríguez-Solás, firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: September 30, 2009
Please include with your abstract:
