(p.250) Chapter Twenty-One Rethinking Spanish Civil War Exile: The Curious Case of the Catalans
Transatlantic Studies

This essay considers the persistent exclusion from Spanish national literary histories of authors who were exiled after the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39, particularly those who wrote in languages other than Spanish. While Spain’s democratic transition presented an opportunity to abandon the artificial and oppressive castellanocentrismo that had dominated Spain’s official cultural histories in the Franco years, and to acknowledge the exiles’ literary production, revising those histories along Transatlantic lines, those opportunities were largely missed. On both accounts, institutional inertia won out, resisting pressures pushing for a multilingual Iberian and Trans-Atlantic approach. Perhaps no case illustrates this better than that of the Catalans who were exiled to Mexico.
