Unearthing Bodies, Revealing Memories: Examining Transitional Justice Practices in Contemporary Spain
Lecturer: Dr. Kajsa Larson, assistant professor of Spanish
Department of World Languages and Literatures


Lecture Description

From 1936 to 1976, over 70,000 people were executed in Spain by the country's civil guard. Many were buried and forgotten in mass graves.   Spain's democratic transition followed and has since been lauded as an international model for peaceful change. Nonetheless, citizens have begun demanding answers about the unresolved fate of their kin. Kajsa Larson will explore how the recuperation of civil war memory is manifested through popular culture, public demonstrations, new government legislation and the grassroots efforts of common citizens.
