Women and Transitions in the Iberian Peninsula in the 1970s
ERC Advanced Grant project is hosting our fifth workshop, titled “Women and Transitions in the Iberian Peninsula in the 1970s”.
In the scope of the project ERC Eirene Post-War Transitions in Gendered Perspective: the Case of the North-Eastern Adriatic Region we focus primarily on exploring post-war transitions and women’s role in them in various geopolitical frameworks to the north of the Adriatic area. A comparative approach and a comparison of different chronologically and geographically different transitions are necessary for a better insight into specific and general lines of forces behind this subject matter. In the seminar dedicated to the Spanish and Portuguese transition from dictatorship to democracy the participants will focus on the specificity of the Spanish transition in the 1970s, particularly on the intertwinement of continuity and discontinuity from the point of view of gender dynamics. The central question that will be addressed is what role was played by women as representatives of respective political parties and women’s organizations in transition, to what extent they identified with winners and to what with the defeated, as well as to what extent grew space for their operation in the public sphere and institutions.
