Zengierski Family Lectures in Spanish Literature and Culture: Carmen Moreno-Nuño, “La exhumación de Federico García Lorca: la memoria como exceso en la España del siglo XXI”

March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

SECOND FEDERICO GARCÍA LORCA LECTURE OF SPRING 2021:

Carmen Moreno-Nuño es autora de Las huellas de la Guerra Civil: mito y trauma en la narrativa de la España democrática (2006) y Haciendo memoria: confluencias entre la historia, la cultura y la memoria de la Guerra Civil en la España del siglo XXI (2019), y coeditora de Armed Resistance: Cultural Representations of the Anti-Francoist Guerrilla (2012)Ha publicado numerosos ensayos sobre, entre otros temas, migración, cine, cómic, televisión, posmodernidad, espacio, escritura femenina, y la guerra civil española.

Analizará la búsqueda del cadáver de Federico García Lorca que tiene lugar en 2009-2010. Dicha búsqueda alcanza todo su significado como parte de la trayectoria histórica de la memoria de la Guerra Civil en la España de la primera década del siglo XXI, que Moreno-Nuño ha trazado en Haciendo Memoria: desde la aparición de la Asociación para la Recuperación de la Memoria Histórica y la apertura de fosas comunes por todo el territorio nacional, hasta la aprobación de la Ley de Memoria Histórica en 2007. La saturación del recuerdo del pasado que provoca la infructuosa búsqueda de Federico García Lorca cierra la década, poniendo punto y final al boom de la memoria.

Zengierski Family Lectures in Spanish Literature and Culture, Spring 2021

This four-part series of presentations examines various aspects of the poet and playwright Federico García Lorca (1898-1936), his contemporaries, and his legacy. Born in the Spanish province of Granada, Lorca combines a championing of the socially marginalized, avant-garde experimentation, and reworking of Andalusian and Roma traditions such as flamenco. Assassinated near the start of the Spanish Civil War, his remains have never been found, putting him at the center of unresolved historical memory issues.

  • Thursday, April 8, 1:00-2:00 pm EST. “The French Connection: Federico García Lorca and Germaine Montero,” Prof. Jonathan Mayhew, University of Kansas
  • Thursday, April 29, 1:00-2:00 pm EST. “Poetic Hallucinations: The Panero Family and Spain in the 20th Century,” Aaron Shulman, journalist and author of ‘The Age of Disenchantments: The Epic Story of Spain’s Most Notorious Literary Family and the Long Shadow of the Spanish Civil War’ (Ecco, 2019)
