Abstract

Los años que transcurren entre 1900 y 1922 definen la parábola de la cuestión de la autonomía en la universidad española. Una primera realidad fue la creación en 1900 del ministerio de instrucción pública y la elaboración por su ministro García Alix de un decreto de autonomía universitaria. Sin embargo el camino de ésta no iba a ser fácil, su sucesor el conde de Romanones hizo malograr la reforma. A pesar de ello los partidarios del cambio no perdieron la esperanza y en las asambleas de catedráticos de 1902 y 1905 continuaron reclamando la tan ansiada autonomía. Finalmente fue Silió en 1919 quien consiguió incoar una efímera experiencia de autonomía. Daniel Comas cuenta todo esto desde la atalaya de la Universidad de Valencia, una institución que durante esos años se encontró en la vanguardia de la reforma. Para ello ha rastreado la prensa local, el archivo universitario, las publicaciones de la universidad… y de esa manera ha reproducido cómo se vivió la cuestión de la autonomía en esa ciudad. Fue un enfrentamiento entre distintas ideologías —conservadores y liberales, monárquicos y republicanos— que se desarrolló en los distintos cuerpos de la universidad —estudiantes y profesores— y que en ocasiones consiguió cruzar el umbral del recinto universitario para interesar a otros actores de la sociedad. En este entramado afloran la alternativa de Giner, las asambleas de catedráticos, los movimientos de estudiantes, etc.

Abstract

The last two decades have been marked by intense and accelerated economic, political, and cultural processes that have affected urban spaces. These changes have occurred in different parts of cities (traditional centers, edges, peripheries) and at different levels of the urban system (large and medium-sized cities and in their respective areas of influence). Possibly the clearest expression of the spatial effects on cities can be perceived in their morphological transformations, their territorial dimensions, or in their social problems. Until 2008, urban–territorial processes were a reflection of the logic and inconsistencies of an expansive economic context and of a structural context that favored the development of cities through concurrent processes and actors. As a result, the built land and amount of urbanized and built surfaces increased, together with processes of the expansion and modernization of cities. Since 2008, the expansive economic cycle has ended, and there have been diverse negative consequences. Notably, the construction sector has come to an abrupt halt. Access to credit has also been reduced, and unemployment has increased. The economic recession has caused sociodemographic and socioeconomic issues exemplified by housing vulnerability, with dispossession, evictions, a shortage of social housing, and energy poverty.
