El éxodo español de 1939: Una topología cultural del exilio

Translated title of the contribution: The Spanish Exodus of 1939: A Cultural Topology of Exile

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This interdisciplinary study of the Spanish Republican exodus of 1939 focuses on the different cultural strategies used by the refugees to adapt to radical changes in their spatial environment. The research explores their attempts to transform the at times dehumanizing spaces of exile into ‘places’ as sites of cultural resistance and renewal. To this end, the monograph highlights the centrality of the concept of ‘place’ in the reconstruction of the lost home by analysing the various stages of the relocation of culture in exile: in French internment camps, on boats, and during settlement on Mexican soil.
