      Futurism in Europe and Latin America. Origins and evolution

      by Sandra Teixeira de Faria (editor)

      This work is based on three relevant factors: the first, refers to the analysis of the futurist movement, from the European and Latin American configurations; the second, to the diffusion of knowledge of the richness of aesthetic ways and differential languages achieved in literature and in the arts, since the emergence of Futurism, at the beginning of the 20th century; and, the third, to the relationship between the current panorama of cultural productions and the influences derived from the movements that preceded them, with emphasis on Futurism.

      Resistance and practices of rebellion at the age of Reformations (16th-18th centuries)

      by Rocío G. Sumillera, Manuela Águeda García-Garrido, José Luis Martínez-Dueñas

      The chapters in this volume examine various understandings of theories of political resistance and obedience on the part of myriad authors, Catholic as well as Protestant, from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. They consider how the Reformation spurred reflections on the concept of resistance, pondering over the circumstances that would call for resistance and that would sanction it, and the agents who could legitimately initiate and manage the deposition of political, religious and royal authorities. From sixteenth-century Spanish readings of the Reformation, to different episodes of active resistance through France, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, to the experience of religious exiles in the English colonies in North America, this volume provides an illustrative sample of case studies on, on the one hand, processes of construction of the rhetoric of resistance, and, on the other, instances of actual uprisings.

      The construction of regional identities in Spain, France and Germany, 1890-1939

      by Eric Storm

      Many of the existing regional topics were forged in the late 19th or early 20th century. Painters, architects and international exhibitions -such as those in Barcelona and Seville- played a crucial role in the definition and visualization of the idiosyncratic character of each region. This pioneering book compares the process of building regional identities in Spain with that of France and Germany, showing that regionalist paintings, houses and pavilions were generally interpreted as a sample of (regional) diversity within the (national) unit. The culture of regionalism was therefore part of a new phase of the nationalization process, while its relations with the various regional movements were weak.

      To the barricades. Culture, identity and political mobilization

      by José Álvarez Junco

      This book gathers some of the author’s many works, selected for their interest about recent historiographical debates. They analyze the main topics that have articulated his long research career: history and theory of social movements, especially of the workers; doctrines, ideologies, myths and rhetoric; the concept of populism and the evolution of nationalist phenomena. The monograph is a good example of the best academic analysis of culture, identity and political mobilization in contemporary Spain.
