Instituto Cervantes Manchester
Instituto Cervantes in Manchester and Leeds, in collaboration with the Durham University, introduce the third edition of “Ex Libris: Publications in Hispanic Studies”, coordinated by Professor H. Rosi Song (Durham University), to promote new publications about Hispanic Studies.
Third session: Theatre Censorship in Spain, 1931-1985, by Catherine O’Leary & Michael Thompson.
Drawing on extensive archival evidence, personal testimonies, and legal analysis, this book documents Spanish censorship practices from the Second Republic, Franco’s dictatorship, and into democracy. The volume explores the how, when, and why of censorship as well as the responses of playwrights, directors, and companies. As a result, the book casts new light on specific theater-makers and their work, how historical conditions shaped genres and canons, as well as the broader cultural history of the twentieth century.
