Reimagining History in Contemporary Spanish Media
(Modern Humanities Research Association, 2021)
This book offers a new perspective via visual culture of the reimagining of history for contemporary Spanish media audiences. It gives close readings of major recent texts in a number of media (theater, cinema, television, and streaming) which have yet to receive scholarly attention and are closely connected to each other. And it stresses the intermediality of the visual by calling attention to connections between those media and others such as painting. From Picasso to the Javis and from the classic serial to Netflix, this book shows how Spanish history is radically reimagined through recent visual culture.
Smith is a distinguished professor of Latin American, Iberian, and Latino cultures and comparative literature at the CUNY Graduate Center.
