INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS – REGIOCAT JANUARY 2020

“El Regionalismo bien entendido”
Ambiguities and limits of regionalism in Franco’s Spain

Wednesday 29 to Friday January 31 2020
Location: Macaya Palace (Passeig de Sant Joan 108, 08037 Barcelona, Spain)

The project “Regionalism in Catalonia under Franco: discourse and practice” (HAR2017-87957-P – Regiocat), of the IdentiCat research group of the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) announces:

A three day conference marking three years of activity bringing together researchers who are working on the role of regionalism within the Franco regime from cultural, political, institutional, historical, economic, legal and artistic perspectives.

In our view, over the course of the dictatorship (whether through collaboration, collusion or permissiveness) we find a series of practices and discourses that question the supposed uniformity of Francoism. Through analysis of a range of regionalist elements we can track continuities and reinterpretations of the past. These might be by means of integration or tolerance that allow us to obtain a more complex and nuanced vision of the Franco regime and its social legacy. 

The congress is (provisionally) organised thematically allowing each contributor a thirty minute period to present their findings. Following each presentation, a period of debate will follow.

We are pleased to confirm the presentation of papers by Professor Eric Storm of the University of Leiden and María Dolores Jiménez Blanco of the Complutense University of Madrid.

Following the Congress, a selection of the papers will be published together in an edited volume or special issue of a journal.

  • Proposals are welcome on regionalism in Franco’s Spain until November 15, 2019. Papers will be considered that deal with themes such as discourse and practice of regionalism, theoretical paradigms and case studies, narratives and activity from the world of culture, and proposals framed more politically on ideology and practice. Proposals must include the full information of the presenter, a provisional title and a brief abstract, and must be sent to jclaretmi@uoc.edu.
  • Papers selected will be given 30 minutes during the congress to be held from January 29 to 31, 2020, followed by debate.
  • On April 1, 2020, the published volume will be submitted in accordance with the specifications that will be sent to the selected authors.
