Abstract

This chapter provides a thorough investigation of the modes by which the sanitary administration coevolved coherently with and inseparably from the Spanish state’s modern transport-communication and economic-industrial infrastructures throughout the nineteenth century. It also investigates examines how quarantine institutions functioned as sanitary gateways or entry checkpoints at borders, physically marking and consolidating while protecting the national territorial space. The paper traces the ideas underpinning the configuration and development of the sanitary network on Spanish national territory, which occurred unevenly – with the most evolved parts depending on certain strategic ports and on links with the railway transport infrastructure that was still under construction. It also suggests that the gradual relaxation of quarantine in liberal Spain was periodically called into question by economic and political policies that defined the relation between the coastal and inland regions of the country.

Abstract

This chapter examines the writings of the renowned late-eighteenth-century Moroccan ambassador Ibn Uthmân Al-Meknassî, the first known traveller from his country to leave an account of European quarantine as experienced during his two diplomatic missions in Spain’s Ceuta (1779) and Malta’s Valletta (1782). It shows that quarantine, on the one hand, acted as a marker of otherness by which Ibn Othman was identified as a Muslim, though this was not a uniform process, owing to the fact that significant differences existed in the degree of alterity experienced in Spain and Malta, and indeed other parts of the Mediterranean. The subjective opinion on quarantine, on the other hand, was also one of the means through which Ibn Uthmân situated himself within Makhzen (Moroccan government) elites at a time when a division between those who declared themselves in favour of European-style modernisation and those who advocated a rejection of European novelties was already visible.

Abstract

Coincidiendo con el ochenta aniversario del comienzo de la Guerra Civil Española, la publicación La memoria transgeneracional se plantea observar la transmisión transgeneracional, en España, de la memoria del conflicto de 1936–1939, a través de la mirada proporcionada por la literatura de tercera generación. Su primera sección se centra alrededor de un acercamiento interdisciplinar a la «memoria» como objeto de estudio, y de la contextualización de la memoria traumatizada en España a partir del año 1939. Por medio de la observación de un corpus de novelas recién publicadas, el objetivo principal de la investigación es la formulación de pautas interpretativas que ayuden a parcelar la rápida evolución del panorama literario de la España actual en lo que se refiere a la representación del pasado conflictivo de la nación.

Abstract

Die Disziplin der Europäischen Geschichte steht wohl vor der größten Herausforderung ihrer noch jungen Vergangenheit: Die globalhistorische Wende hat viele Grundannahmen der Europäischen Moderne in Frage gestellt und neue Anforderungen formuliert. Die Geschichte Europas soll polyzentrische oder provinzialisierte Perspektiven aufzeigen, die sich als Teil einer transnationalen oder Globalgeschichte verstehen. Diesem Anspruch wird der Band gerecht. Die Beiträger nutzen transnationale, postkoloniale und globalhistorische Zugänge, um einen neuen Blick auf die Europäische Geschichte zu werfen. Zudem führt die Auseinandersetzung mit den geografischen und analytischen Rändern zu einem neuen Verständnis der Geschichte Europas. "Europa" wird dadurch zu einer spezifischen sozialen und kulturellen Konstellation, die sich über innere Gemeinsamkeiten und Konflikte sowie über Abgrenzungen nach außen und Interaktionen mit anderen Weltteilen konstituierte.

Abstract

Schiller’s Don Carlos, written ten years before his great Wallenstein trilogy, testifies to the young playwright’s growing power. First performed in 1787, it stands at the culmination of Schiller’s formative development as a dramatist and is the first play written in his characteristic iambic pentameter. Don Carlos plunges the audience into the dangerous political and personal struggles that rupture the court of the Spanish King Philip II in 1658. The autocratic king’s son Don Carlos is caught between his political ideals, fostered by his friendship with the charismatic Marquis Posa, and his doomed love for his stepmother Elisabeth of Valois. These twin passions set him against his father, the brooding and tormented Philip, and the terrible power of the Catholic Church, represented in the play by the indelible figure of the Grand Inquisitor. Schiller described Don Carlos as "a family portrait in a princely house." It interweaves political machinations with powerful personal relationships to create a complex and resonant tragedy. The conflict between absolutism and liberty appealed not only to audiences but also to other artists and gave rise to several operas, not least to Verdi’s great Don Carlos of 1867. The play, which the playwright never finished to his satisfaction, lives on nonetheless among his best-loved works and is translated here with flair and skill by Flora Kimmich. Like her translations of Schiller’s Wallenstein and his Fiesco’s Conspiracy at Genoa, this is a lively and accessible rendering of a classic text. As with all books in the Open Book Classics series, it is supported by an introduction and notes that will inform and enlighten both the student and the general reader.

The main purpose of this book is to contribute with the discussion about criminal proceedings and how doctrinal opinions spread through the South of Italy, Iberian countries and New Spain in the Early Modern age. Some relevant topics are judicial discretionary, protection and application of royal competencies, as well as the importance of the decisiones in regard to the procedural activity within the high courts of Portugal and Sicily. The interdependence between Criminal law, doctrinal discourses and judicial practice within the scope of the European ius commune is a basic feature of the chapters contained in this book.---El propósito principal de esta obra colectiva es la contribución al conocimiento de los procedimientos penales y de la difusión de las diversas tendencias doctrinales en el ámbito del sur de Italia, los territorios ibéricos y Nueva España en la temprana Edad Moderna.

Abstract

Este estudio pone de relieve los componentes orales que recorren la cultura jurídica de la España isabelina - aunque, con alta probabilidad, muchas de las hipótesis aquí lanzadas son perfectamente aplicables a otras tradiciones americanas y europeas. Con el abogado-orador como modelo de jurista perfecto y piedra de toque de la referida cultura, se analizan sucesivamente las prácticas universitarias (lecciones, discursos de apertura, oposiciones a cátedra), la profesión forense (saberes, bibliotecas, gestos...) con atención particular a la literatura sobre elocuencia y, en fin, la actividad parlamentaria y legislativa. Se pretende así observar desde nuevas perspectivas los textos del momento liberal.

Abstract

Disabled Bodies in Early Modern Spanish Literature examines the concepts and role of women in selected Spanish discourses and literary texts from the late fifteenth to seventeenth centuries from the perspective of feminist disability theories. It explores a wide range of Spanish medical, regulatory and moral discourses, illustrating how such texts inherit, reproduce and propagate an amalgam of Western traditional concepts of female embodiment. It goes on to examine concrete representations of deviant female characters, focusing on the figures of syphilitic prostitutes and physically decayed aged women in literary texts such as Celestina, Lozana andaluza and selected works by Cervantes and Quevedo. Finally, an analysis of the personal testimony of Teresa de Avila, a nun suffering neurological disorders, complements the discussion of early modern women’s disability.
