Title:Gender and Nation in Basque Narrative During the Spanish Civil War (1936--1939)

Subject(s):Women's Studies
Abstract:The Basque authors whose works I analyze include the following: Insurgents Rafael Garcia Serrano, Maria Rosa Urraca Pastor, Manuel Iribarren, Jacinto Miquelarena, Jose Maria Salaverria and Jorge Claramunt; Republicans Ernestina de Champourcin, Isidro R. Mendieta, Jose Ramon Alonso and Luis Ferreiro; and Basque nationalists Ramon de Belausteguigoitia, Pedro de Basaldua and Domingo Arruti. In the first part of the dissertation I investigate the connections between femininities and nationalism, studying in each chapter a key feminine figure in war narratives: the mother, the girlfriend or fiancee and the nurse. In the second part I examine the relationship between masculinities and nationalism, dedicating one chapter to the soldier and another to the depiction of the enemy.
