Constructing Identity in Twentieth-Century Spain : Theoretical Debates and Cultural Practice Paperback / softback

Edited by Jo (Director of the Institute of Romance Studies, University of London, and Professor of Sp Labanyi

Description

This volume is designed to further the study of Spanish culture in the broad sense of the network of symbolic systems through which social groups construct and negotiate a sense of identity or identities.

The emphasis is on culture as a set of practices rather than as a corpus of texts.

The aim is to introduce readers to current theoretical debates in a range of disciplines, as well as to inform them about specific areas of twentieth-century Spanish culture.

The foursections on 'Ethnicity and Migration', 'Gender', 'Popular Culture', and 'The Local and the Global' cover ethnography, music, TV, advertising, popular literature, medical discourse, film, posters, museums, and urban development.
