The Graphic Past: Comic and History in 21st-Century Spain

 

Description: Contemporary Spanish graphic narrative has come so far in the last years that there is a prevalent feeling that in Spain we are living in a creatively Golden Age for comics. The graphic novel has gained respectability and has merited considerable critical attention, which has resulted in the normalization of the study of comics within the academic disciplines. The Graphic Past: Comic and History in 21st-Century Spain seeks to contribute to this growing critical landscape by engaging on the analysis of the representation of Spain’s past. It also seeks to contribute to the further consolidation of the comic as an object of academic study within U.S. Hispanism.
