Transitional Justice Practices in Spain

 Tomorrow, April 8 at 6pm at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County--Main Library, Dr. Kajsa Larson, Assistant Professor of Spanish at NKU, will be presenting a Six@Six lecture titled, “Unearthing Bodies, Revealing Memories: Examining Transitional Justice Practices in Contemporary Spain.” Further details can be found at Brown Paper Tickets

Lecture Description:
From 1936 to 1976, over 70,000 people were executed in Spain by the country's civil guard. Many were buried and forgotten in mass graves.   Spain's democratic transition followed and has since been lauded as an international model for peaceful change. Nonetheless, citizens have begun demanding answers about the unresolved fate of their kin. Kajsa Larson will explore how the recuperation of civil war memory is manifested through popular culture, public demonstrations, new government legislation and the grassroots efforts of common citizens.
