Genre Fusion: A New Approach to History, Fiction, and Memory in Contemporary Spain (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Genre Fusion opens with a straightforward overview of the relationships among history, fiction, and memory in contemporary culture. While providing an up-to-date context for scholarly debates about Spain's historical memory, Genre Fusion also expands the contours of the discussion beyond the specialised territory of Hispanic studies. To demonstrate the theoretical necessity of genre fusion, Brenneis analyses pairs of interconnected texts (one a work of literature, the other a work of historiography) written by a single author. She explores how fictional and nonfictional works by Montserrat Roig, Carmen Martin Gaite, Carlos Blanco Aguinaga, and Javier Marias unearth the collective memories of Spain's past.
