This book provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of the multiple legacies of Francoist violence in contemporary Spain, with a special focus on the exhumations of mass graves from the Civil War and post-war era. The various contributions frame their study within a broader reflection on the nature, function and legacies of state-sanctioned violence in its many forms. Offering perspectives from fields as varied as history, political science, literary and cultural studies, forensic and cultural anthropology, international human rights law, sociology, and art, this volume explores the multifaceted nature of a society’s reckoning with past violence. It speaks not only to those interested in contemporary Spain and Western Europe, but also to those studying issues of transitional and post-transitional justice in other national and regional contexts.

The CASB Occasional Papers is intended as a platform for the dissemination of research focused on Spanish topics carried out by young American university students. Many students come to Spain to complete their academic studies, discover the complexity of the local society and its history and, as a consequence, some of them address their academic interest in Hispanic issues in writing. In this sense, CASB Occasional Papers aims to contribute to the evolution of a new generation of “Hispanistas” from different fields and backgrounds in the very early steps of their academic careers and, at the same time, offer the results of their junior research to broader and non-specialized audiences. Within a context of decreasing interest in humanities and social studies, this publication is an effort to promote and encourage research in fields centered around the perspective of “outsiders”, the Transatlantic point of view and an interdisciplinary approach to wide-ranging themes. The three papers included here examine several aspects of the Spanish Civil War and its consequences: Molly Goodkind analyzes four important radical American women (Mary Low, Lois Orr, Martha Gellhorn and Josephine Herbst) who participated in the war; Marcella Hayes examines the role of seven anarchist maquis during the Francoist dictatorship in Barcelona; and Amanda Mitchell studies the relevant recent debates on history and memory as a result of the Ley de la Memoria Histórica (2007).

Sites of Memory in Spain and Latin America is a collection of essays that explores historical memory at the intersection of political, cultural, social, and economic forces in the contexts of Spain and Latin America. The essays here focus on a variety of forms of memory—from the most concrete to the performative—that resist forgetting and unite individuals against hegemonic memory. The volume comprises four thematic sections that focus on Chile, Spain, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, Peru, and the Dominican Republic. Keeping in line with the concept informing this collection, that the past returns politically to haunt the present, the four sections move from the contemporary context to the colonial and pre-Columbian eras in Latin America. For all its diversity, the researchers’ interdisciplinary methodology displayed in this collection brings to light processes that would otherwise have remained illegible under a more narrow interpretative approach to historical memory. This volume focuses on the processes of remembering in geographies that have been transformed by violence and conflict in Spain and Latin America. In the cases investigated witnessing, trauma, and testimony speak to the urgency of truth and justice; historical memory, therefore, is ultimately a political act.

The years 1936–1945 in Spain saw catastrophic civil war followed by fierce repression and economic misery. Families were torn apart and social relations were disrupted by death, exile and defeat. Society became traumatized so deeply that people avoided talking openly of these years for decades. This study attempts to show how the Civil War was understood and absorbed, particularly by those who could claim themselves as 'the victors', during and in the immediate aftermath of the conflict. It does so by exploring the interchanges between violence, ideas and economics during a period in which liberalism was seen as foreign contagion that infected carriers of impurities such as freemasons, regional nationalists, the working class, non-Catholics and women. This was the context of the internal colonization that confirmed Franco's victory, concentrated economic power, and left executions and starvation in its wake.
