Dr. Anna Casas-Aguilar (UBC, Vancouver British Columbia) will talk on “The Tourist as the Other in Spain (1960-2018).” She will explore the multiple ways in which visual culture in Spain has represented tourists, arguing that they have been portrayed as a fundamental Other in a country whose Franco-era concepts of nation and region were reinforced as well as continue to be reformulated to this day.
