Within the framework of the Roma People's Week organized by the University, the online bibliographic exhibition History and Culture of the Roma People has been carried out, which is structured in two guides:
History and Culture of the Gypsy People. Books
History and Culture of the Gypsy People. Audiovisual resources
In the audiovisual field we can listen to the sound recordings of our portal that bring us closer to the situation of the gypsy people in France from another perspective, although always in relation to Spain. A total of fifteen audios are preserved grouped in three different reports recorded in the 60s of the twentieth century. The recordings show traditional differentiating religious and cultural aspects of this town and the vestiges of a way of life that is now lost. In this sense, a video has been made of a Gypsy Pilgrimage in Provence with the sounds collected live by Radio Paris in 1963 and preserved in Devuélveme la voz with current images provided by different photographers.

"La guerra infinita" will discover the different facets of the work of the photographer Antoni Campañà (Arbúcies, 1906-Sant Cugat del Vallès, 1989), focusing on the photographs he took during the Spanish Civil War, photographs that the family found by chance in 2018. This set of images, of great artistic quality and historical relevance, were hidden by the artist himself in a box, and they remained in it for more than seventy years, from the end of the Civil War until their discovery.
This box, with hundreds of unpublished images, is now known as "la caja roja" and represents a new contribution of great relevance to the photographic heritage, especially with regard to the Civil War.
This website of the Archive of Democracy that collects the experience of women who participated actively in the Transition to Democracy, between Franco's death in 1975 and the creation of the Women's Institute in 1983. It aims to make visible the intervention and the protagonism of women in the various movements, organizations, citizen initiatives and political parties that acted against the Franco dictatorship and that were decisive in the establishment of a democratic regime in Spain, to contribute to knowing our past from a rigorous, critical point of view and inclusive.
Mónica Moreno Seco, professor at the Department of Contemporary Humanities, is the author of this portal created in order to facilitate research work and disseminate open knowledge.
University Library has made the video "My wife does not understand me: stereotypes of women in the radio advertising of the Franco regime" as an activity for Women's Day 2021.
The Franco regime was betting on a model of women where the main thing was that she was a mother and wife devoted to the man and taking care of the home.
This reality is reflected in the video that has been produced with the contents of the sound fund of Radio Alcoy (hosted on our Internet portal) where there is a collection of around 100 radio spots broadcast, especially in the 60s of the century XX.
This is a book about Basque nationalism and its evolution during the central decades of the 20th century, through the analysis of the figure of Telesforo Monzón (1904-1981), one of its most influential politicians, first in the ranks of the PNV and later in Herri Batasuna. He maintained an enormous political leadership from the Second Republic to the Transition although, even today, a partial image of his figure persists. A schematic memory has been transmitted that reduces the character to a symbol of the national unity, however, this representation does not correspond to the real story of Telesforo Monzón, much more complex and contradictory.
