En la escena central de la película (cúspide argumental, estructural y simbólica) se narra la toma de conciencia homosexual del protagonista. Un análisis de esta escena primordial revela la presencia de numerosos elementos mitológicos, tanto...

En este trabajo se analizan las operaciones de re-semantizacion a que la imagen de Espana se ve sometida en el cine hecho en Cataluna en los anos ochenta y primera mitad de los anos noventa, ejemplificado en la obra temprana de Ventura Pons y en la de madurez de Bigas Luna. El estudio propuesto de las peliculas el vicari d’Olot (1981) y Que t’hi ju...
Chapter
Contemporary transnational Latin American cinema provides numerous instances of filmmaking praxis in which the hardly compatible agendas of neoliberalism and decolonization conflict with each other. Walter Mignolo’s decolonial aesthetics and Siba Grovogui’s metaphoric geopolitics illustrate such conflict particularly well as it conflates in the geo...
Chapter
This chapter puts forward the hypothesis that Martínez Lázaro’s nationalist comedies Ocho apellidos vascos/Spanish Affair (2014) and Ocho apellidos catalanes/Spanish Affair 2 (2015) draw together several of the most salient aspects of nation branding (Anholt, Places: Identity, Image and Reputation. New York: Palgrave, 2010). These include commodifi...

For the true exercise of citizenship to occur, gender violence must be eradicated, as it is not an interpersonal problem, but an attack on the very concept of democracy. Despite increasing social awareness and legal measures taken to fight gender violence, it is still prevalent worldwide. Even in a country such as Spain, praised in the UN Handbook...
Article
This article considers the ways in which Ocho apellidos vascos (2014) mobilizes salient aspects of nation branding, such as communication strategies that privilege a tourist’s gaze, authentication of local stereotypes, selective recycling of history, the commodification of place and commercial nationalism. The film was produced and released in 2014...
Article
Bigas Luna’s critique of national stereotypes is by no means confined to his celebrated Iberian Trilogy. His on-screen exploration of such images can be viewed as the result of his earlier investigations on the nature of visual representation and the cinematic image. These investigations culminated in Bigas Luna’s most elaborate proposition on the...
Article
The history of Spanish departments in Australian universities can be traced back to the 1960s, when a number of British hispanistas relocated to Australia and created a small number of successful teaching programs that reproduced the British model. A second generation of Spanish scholars arrived in the 1980s and 1990s, mainly from Latin American co...

More than any other, the idea of normalisation has provoked deep divisions within queer activism both at a philosophical and also at a political level. At the root of these divisions lies the irreconcilable divergence between an agenda for social change, which advocates the need for society to accept all sexual behaviours and identities as normal,...

Frente al imaginario de lo extranjero, y sobre todo de 'las extranjeras', tan visitado por cierto cine español en los años sesenta y setenta, este trabajo da protagonismo a la representación cinematográfica del turismo nacional interesado por el disfrute de nuestras costas. Para bucear por estas aguas poco exploradas del celuloide nacional hemos el...
Article
The conspicuous scarcity of gay characters and themes in Mexican cinema often has been interpreted in anthropological terms as a cultural effect of a machismo-inflected patriarchy. This paper puts forward an alternative interpretation based on the possible link between sexuality (including homosexuality) and nation image - both the image that Mexic...

An important form of transmission of knowledge about the Spanish nation is based on the continuous telling of stories in which the nation features as a suprahistorical, perennial entity. Myths of national origin, golden-age legends, and epics of national heroes are some of these stories. This mode of access to knowledge assumes a suspension of disb...

La organización de las dimensiones espacial y temporal en el discurso fílmico presenta algunas particularidades con respecto a otras manifestaciones discursivas, como el relato verbal o la representación dramática. En este trabajo analizamos las configuraciones espaciales y temporales propias de la narración cinematográfica, haciendo uso de ejemplo...
Article
The first five articles in this edition of JILAS address the theme of masculinity and violence in Spain and Latin America. Despite—or perhaps because of—the proliferation of tropes of posturing machos, Latin lovers, vain, prancing toreros and enraged, jealous husbands, which are often peddled in the media and popular culture, the question of mascul...
Article
El director vasco Julio Medem combina en sus películas una estética intelectualizada comúnmente asociada al cine de autor con una actitud de compromiso ante la dificultosa expresión de una subjetividad sometida a la constante reinterpretación histórica. Un análisis de motivos temáticos e ideológicos en Los amantes del Círculo Polar (1998) desde una...
Article
I decided this year to try and get more and more flexible feedback. Rather than waiting to the last lecture, I sought it quite early in the semester; rather than doing it formally through TEDI, I organised it myself in an obviously informal fashion; rather than statistics and hard factual data, I asked for feelings and opinions; and rather than foc...
Article
La reciente narrativa española de temática homosexual es un conjunto de textos mucho más amplio de lo que se podria pensar. En los años setenta se observa un creciente interés por este tipo de literatura, y a principios de los ochenta se produce un cierto boom de producción, no siempre acompañado por un boom de calidad. No existe aún una explicació...
Article
La muerte de Mikel (Imanol Uribe, 1983) ha sido entendida como uno mäs de los intentos del cine español posterior a Franco por recuperar zonas marginates para el gran público. Habría que situarla, de esta manera, como exponente del nuevo cine vasco, junto a películas como La fuga de Segovia (1981) del propio Uribe, La conquista de Albania (1983) de...
Article
Conjunto de análisis sobre la representación de la homosexualidad en algunas obras de la literatura y el cine español del siglo XX, tarea para la que su autor hace uso de los conceptos centrales de los estudios gays y la Queer Theory, expresión que ha sido traducida al español como "teoría torcida", surgidos y desarrollados principalmente en el ámb...
