The 80th Anniversary of the Republican Exile of 1939: Lessons from and for a Modern World Symposium

5 Dec 2019 9:30 am - 6 Dec 2019 6:30 pm


Scholars (Foster Building), University of Central Lancashire, Preston


As a Commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of the Republican Exile, this symposium aims to reveal and share experiences that will enable us to shed some light on today’s reality, as well as revisit these experiences in light of that same reality.

Only a transdisciplinary approach would allow us to understand such a complex matter. With this in mind, papers will examine the artistic expressions of this exile (cinema, literature, art…), as well as the general concepts of exile, migration and diaspora from a variety of perspectives: cultural, artistic, philosophical, political, sociological and psychological. Moreover, current local organisations and refugees will converse about their experiences with the aim of establishing a dialogue between the past and the present: what are the lessons learnt from the Spanish Republican diaspora that might help us understand and deal with the current migration crisis? And how can the lessons that we are learning on a daily basis shed light on the Republican diaspora?
