Germán Labrador Méndez

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This course will explore 20th century Spanish history from the 1936 Civil War to the present, paying special attention to Francisco Franco’s regime and the 1970’s transition to democracy. We will discuss the social, political and cultural implications of memory and history. Dialectics between dictatorship and democracy will be at the center of the discussion. Public remembrance, memorials, social movements, gender, citizenship and neoliberal crisis are among the topics to be addressed, by means of scholarship, documentary films, fiction, art, exhibitions and literature.
