Journal of Romance Studies

Current Issue: Volume 16, Issue 3: Mediatizations and memories of Spain’s failed coup d’état

In the past two decades, scholarly attention to Spanish cultural memory has focused mainly on the memoria histórica [‘historical memory’] of the Spanish Civil War and the dictatorship of Francisco Franco, which lasted thirty-six years. Recently, however, the Spanish transition to democracy, or simply known as the transition, has moved into focus, from a historiographical point of view as well as from cultural perspectives. Nevertheless, the failed coup d’état executed by Civil Guard Lieutenant Colonel Antonio Tejero on 23 February 1981 is an event still only marginally studied and only partially analysed as a lieu de mémoire [‘site of memory’] in Spanish democracy. A noticeable exception, and a constant reference in this special issue, is the book edited by Francisca López and Enric Castelló (2014), Cartografías del 23-F: Representaciones en la prensa, la televisión, la novela, el cine y la cultura popular, which aims to give an exhaustive overview of the cultural production on 23-F.




The Journal for Movies and Mind

Current Issue: Volume 11, Issue 1

This issue features a selection of articles covering a broad list of topics such as concepts of cinema authorship, cognitive dissonance in viewer responses, a psychoanalytic analysis of the Star Wars films, and more. A review essay on three books about film style and mise-en-scène concludes the issue.



Regions and Cohesion

Current Issue: Volume 7, Issue 1
