Spain After the Indignados/15M Movement The 99% Speaks Out

Editors: Pereira-Zazo, Óscar, Torres, Steven L. (Eds.)
https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030194345 

coverSpain After the Indignados/15M Movement explores how the aftershocks of the 2007 Great Recession restructured Spain’s political sphere and political imaginary. It brings together a representative sample of Spain’s leading progressive voices, including two of the five founding members of the Podemos party. The essays herein explore the areas of economics, politics, ecology, social change, media, and cultural politics in order to present a broad, critical account of contemporary Spain, with a special emphasis on emerging forms of sociopolitical contestation, self-organizing, democratic participation, and radical politics. The edited volume argues that Spanish cultural studies—which originally gravitated toward celebratory accounts of capitalist modernization, the cultural Movida and the advent of a postmodern Spain—must continue to build a new cultural politics that not only challenges the accepted narrative of the Spanish Transition to democracy, but that is committed to confronting the civilizatory challenges currently faced.

"La memoria social secuestrada. Creando red desde las redes". Una crítica a la noción del progreso como el estado de excepción de los oprimidos --como dijo Walter Benjamin-- a través de la lectura de dos capítulos de Salvados de Jordi Évole, las reacciones de los usuarios de Twitter y la posibilidad de exhumación de los imaginarios políticos y literarios del realismo social de los 50 que se abre en el momento destituyente en que nos encontramos.
