Book Description

July 15 2011 Liverpool University Press - Contemporary French & Francophone Cultures


Writing Galicia explores a part of Europe’s cultural and social landscape that has until now remained largely unmapped—the exciting body of creative work that, since the 1970s, has emerged as a result of contact between the small Atlantic nation of Galicia and the Anglophone world. Paying particular attention to the community of London Galicians and their descendants, this book traces representations of Galician cultural history through art and close, critical readings of literary works by, among others, Carlos Durán, Manuel Rivas, Xesús Fraga, and Ramiro Fonte.
Too often neglected in literary studies, Galician culture is strongly evident throughout Europe’s cultural landscape, and this book allows us to reframe this small Atlantic culture.

Product Description


“A very significant and exciting contribution to the steadily growing field of Galician cultural studies. The author skillfully examines the ways that the experiences of migration have defined and redefined Galician identity in relation to other cultures and languages, and how Galicia has been written beyond the nation.”

(Jos� Colmeiro, University of Auckland)
