Violence and Memory: considering repression and resistance in Spain 1936-1952 in comparative perspective
Venue: London School of Economics. Dates, 21 and 22 September 2010.
With a debate raging today in Spain over the prosecution of judge Baltasar Garzón for his proposed investigation into mass killings carried out by the Franco regime during and after the Spanish Civil War, the conference offers a forum to debate recent research on the repression and efforts to come to terms with this dark past. Specialists in other countries will also seek to place the Spanish experience in a broader international and comparative context. Speakers include Paul Preston, Leigh Payne, Julián Casanova and Helen Graham.
Fees: £50. Free for PhD students.
