In this seminar we will explore some of the most significant social and cultural processes that take place in Spain after Franco’s death in 1975 as they shape and articulate the political transition from an authoritarian regime to a democratic order. Throughout what has been called an unprecedented ‘politics of consensus’ in the initial years of the transitional period, we will study the intellectual concerns and artistic manifestations that recreated new symbols of national, regional and individual identity in a country attempting to shed its past and recast itself as a new, cosmopolitan society. We will focus on how the negotiations between the national desire to forget a painful, divisive past and the need to preserve historical memory manifest themselves in literature, film and other artistic expressions. Special emphasis will be given to the dilemmas emerging from the experience of exile and return; the intersection between local and supranational — European — discourses; the visibility of marginal voices, and the symbolic relocation of national identity in urban landscapes crossed by preservation, renewal, and modernity.
