RegioCat, Regionalism in Catalonia under the Franco’s regime: discourses and practices

“Regionalism in Catalonia under the Franco’s regime: discourses and practices” (HAR2017-87957-P) proposes to explore the continuity and influence of more or less explicit forms of regionalism within the spaces of legality and permissiveness existing during 1939 and 1975, establishing the active and permanent participation of Catalan contemporary society in the construction of the liberal Spanish state. Our hypothesis focuses specifically on the relevance of regionalist discourses and practices in the political-cultural reconstruction process of Catalonia, and the configuration and development of Spain during the second half of the Twentieth century.
