Social Democracy and Regionalism at the Roman Theatre of Sagunt

6:30pm to 7:30pm


RCC Conference Room, 26 Trowbridge St., Cambridge MA

With the advent of democracy and the quasi-federalization of Spain during the 1980s, regions assumed unprecedented powers over heritage policy. In the Valencian Country, an area with a distinctive culture and language, nationalist claims tainted debates on preservation. These phenomena are well exemplified by the restoration project for the Roman theatre of Sagunt (ca. 50 AD), which the Valencian autonomous government commissioned in 1984. This paper will discuss that restoration in the light of the political tensions that surrounded the government’s social-democratic agenda, which aimed at the reconstruction of an egalitarian public realm and of a long-repressed regional identity.

However, the trace of colonialism, the living memory of exile, and an uneven distribution of economic, political, and symbolic power haunts transatlantic imagination. This conference aims to explore the many ways in which antagonisms, uneasy pluralism, and tense negotiations of difference overdetermine sites of Transatlantic cultural practices.
