Seeing the Spanish Restoration on TV

Televising Restoration Spain: History and Fiction in Twenty-First-Century Costume Dramas (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) is a collection of essays on recent Spanish television series that are set in the period of the Spanish Restoration (1874-1931). Co-edited by Boston College Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies Wan Sonya Tang and David R. George, Jr., this volume aims to add depth to the field of global media studies and reinvigorate 19th century Spanish literary and cultural studies by bringing the field into dialogue with contemporary theory on television, film, media, and visual culture. Essays cover topics such as the production of televisual heritage, evolving constructions of gender, and television as historian. Tang talked about the book in a video from BC Libraries.
