The twentieth century in Spain was exceptionally eventful. Many Spaniards were born during a monarchy, lived through two dictatorships, a Republic, and a civil war, and died in a democracy. In this lecture, Prof. Casanova will reflect on the main historiographical currents that have guided his research in the last three decades: social history and change, with special emphasis on civil wars and revolutions; comparative historical sociology; and collective violence in the 20th century.

Julián Casanova is Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Zaragoza and Visiting Professor at the Central European University. He has authored and co-authored important books on the history of Spain, the Spanish Civil War, and Franco’s Spain which were published, in English, by Routledge, Cambridge University Press, and I.B. Tauris. He is currently completing a new book about collective violence in Twentieth-Century Europe, to be published in April 2020. In addition to his scholarship, Prof. Casanova is a frequent contributor to the Spanish "El País," and serves as a historical consultant in the television and film industry, both in documentaries and TV series and films.
