Susan Larson deposited La vanguardia en la arquitectura española (1920-1936): ¿proyecto inacabado o proyecto indefinido? in the group LLC 20th- and 21st-Century Spanish and Iberian on MLA Commons 4 weeks, 1 day ago
Este ensayo entra en el debate en España sobre el alcance que tuvo, entre 1920 y 1239, una posible “vanguardia arquitectónica”. Identificando “vanguardia” con “modernidad” y confundiendo lo que pudo ser un debate teórico con “signos” de los nuevos tiempos, la mayoría de lo que ya se ha escrito sobre el tema queda patente como fueron muchos temp…[Read more]
William Nichols deposited Telling the story of Iberian Cultural Studies: Spaces of convergence and the defense of the Humanities in the group LLC 20th- and 21st-Century Spanish and Iberian on MLA Commons 1 month, 1 week ago
While many in academia around the U.S. may anchor themselves in cynical opposition to the proliferation of neoliberal discourse and the policies that accompany, I propose that language departments are in a uniquely privileged position within the humanities to assert the value of our programs within the neoliberal paradigm. Specifically, the…[Read more]

Susan Larson deposited Who and What Was José Antonio Nieves Conde Criticizing in the Film El inquilino (1957)? in the group LLC 20th- and 21st-Century Spanish and Iberian on MLA Commons 3 months, 1 week ago
How does one understand a filmmaker like José Antonio Nieves Conde, a Falangist whose films with strong neorealist tendencies were radically altered by the Francoist censors for being too critical of the economic injustices inherent to daily urban life after the Spanish Civil War? Many film critics have asked this question and this essay looks…[Read more]

If we affirmatively answer Maria Kaika and Erik Swyngedouw’s invitation to think beyond the ‘fetishization of the modern city’ as the pinnacle of human-centered progress and achievement in order to consider the urban as both a process of transformed nature and the metabolic and social transformation of nature through human labor, the city becom…[Read more]
Kathryn Anne Everly deposited En busca de la juventud perdida, reconciliación y desagravio en Carta al padre de Jesús Aguado in the group LLC 20th- and 21st-Century Spanish and Iberian on MLA Commons 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Jesús Aguado’s recent book, Carta al padre (2016), deals openly with both physical and emotional trauma suffered at the hands of toxic masculinity. The poetic voice vindicates his younger self, abused by the father, through the written word that transfers power to the weak and disenfranchised. Lacanian naming and patriarchal structures (family,…[Read more]
