Research

 

9781137501493My research is primarily concerned with the negotiating relationships between the past and the
present. My book, Narrating War in Peace: The Spanish Civil War in the Transition and Today (Palgrave Series in Cultural Heritage and Conflict 2015) explores the ways in which the narrative and discourse regarding the Spanish Civil War has changed in and surrounding four prominent cultural products: Agustí Centelles’ photographs, Jaime Camino’s documentary films, Picasso’s Guernica, and Antonio Muñoz Molina’s Civil War novels. I also recently edited a volume published in Hispanic Issues Online titled Perpetradores y memoria democrática en España that examines the representation of the perpetrator of violence as a reflection and exploration of what Spanish society thinks about human evil.
