Event Description:
Convergencias figuradas: cultura popular y poder en España, de la premodernidad a la modernidad/Figures of Convergence: Popular Culture and Power in Spain, from Premodernity to Modernity

Pre-modern and modern Spain are marked both by extraordinary cultural productivity and by radical social and political transformations.
