Abstract
Space has often been relegated to time in contemporary Spanish Peninsular studies, where the issues of memory and the past have surfaced as a primary political and aesthetic concern in recent criticism. Writing both against and within this grain, monographs by Ann Davies, Nathan Richardson, Stephen Vilaseca and Lorraine Ryan underline the importance of space and spatiality in conceptualizing contemporary Spain. Through a multifaceted examination of literature, cinema, and visual arts, these scholars trace the development of the nation through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from the Civil War to the destape, and from the transition to the economic crisis of 2008. While not the earliest works on Spanish urban cultural studies, these texts do serve as a strong foundation for any future work in the area.
