Project of the University of Alicante for the reconstruction of our history through radio sound material, focusing on the years of the Franco regime and the transition to democracy
The book deals with the management of the Francoist press and propaganda during the first six months of the Civil War and the role of General Millán Astray at the head of it.
The plurality of messages around the National Movement made speeches unify, subordinating the media to the political interests of the New State and its Caudillo Franco.
The rebels put all the media under their control and coined the slogans, myths and speeches of the New State that would be in force for decades in Spain.
The democratic transition, which marked the passage from the Franco dictatorship to the constitutional monarchy governed by the order of parliamentary democracy, is one of the most significant political-social and cultural events in the history of Spain in the 20th century.
This new thematic portal has just been inaugurated in the Miguel de Cervantes Virtual Library focused on the transition from dictatorship to democracy in Spain from the perspective of creations in film, literature, theater and television.
It is, therefore, an interdisciplinary thematic portal with a wide selection of works from different media. The Database on the cultural representations of the Spanish Transition, the Thesaurus and the Bibliography provides materials and resources that may be useful for future research and a starting point for the recovery, in the cultural domain, of the various memories generated around to this historical moment.
On May 25, 1938, one of the largest attacks against the civilian population of the Spanish Civil War took place, with more than 300 deaths. The large number of people in the market that day, mostly women, children and the elderly, together with the failure of the anti-aircraft alarm system amplified the magnitude of the tragedy.
In order not to forget these events and to remember all the victims, Alex Guillén has written and directed this documentary with the support of the Alicante production company Letra & Frame. In addition, in the created web space, we can see different videographic material of memory and memory of the air attacks against Alicante during the Spanish Civil War.
"Industries / Matrices, Plots and Sounds" is the name of the exhibition that can be visited at the Valencian Institute of Modern Art until October 17, 2021
Its objective is to offer a particular reading of the Valencian industrial heritage based on sound, immaterial and social movements. The proposal is developed through the compilation of sounds, processes, images, videos, music, pieces of art and speeches linked to the factories in their original context of use, but also in their abandonment and in their reconversion into heritage spaces. It focuses particularly on the proactive uses of industrial heritage promoted by citizens.
From the Devuélveme la voz project we have collaborated with the transfer of a set of audios related to the industrial crisis in Alcoy in the 1970s.
The initiative will value the realities that led the struggle for democracy in the political process of the Transition, particularly those dynamics that bet on the democratic break in the face of the continuities of the Franco dictatorship, highlighting the importance of such active social movements at those moments.
Until July 15, each author may send a maximum of two communication proposals for this Congress through the form found in the previous link and which will be held in A Coruña on March 10, 11 and 12, 2022 Registration is free and acceptance of the proposals will be communicated to the authors on July 31, 2021.

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.
