Publisher Comments:

Spanish cultural studies are still in their infancy and to date there has been little interdisciplinary work. Spanish Cultural Studies: An Introduction maps out the new terrain, taking into account the major changes which have been taking place in the context of Spanish Studies in both secondary and higher education. The focus is now upon a broader range of cultural forms, so this book adopts an interdisciplinary approach in its wide-ranging study of twentieth-century Spanish culture and society, emphasizing recent and contemporary developments.
