This volume deals with the commitment in the defense of egalitarian values by theatrical creators of the Spanish republican exile of 1939. Their innovative narrative and visual discourse offer models of masculinity and femininity that represent the change in gender paradigms derived from the rising leading role of women in the public sphere. The book approaches the potential differentiation of work produced by them in terms of sexual identity, especially in questions as maternity and conjugality, showing the position of society with regard to the professional women. It also explains the influence of the professional roles achieved by the republican Spanish women in the international scene –Mexico, France, Argentina, Cuba, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Uruguay– thanks to their use of modern artistic languages in works located between Vanguard and Tradition. They were also known for their work in Cinema, Radio, Television, Pedagogy and Translation. All these fields let women creators and managers continue with their artistic labor in the republican exile. Without forgetting the links with the country of origin, they were the best ambassadors of those artistic vanguards that so influenced the modernization of ideological and esthetic discourse in Western societies.

Este volumen indaga sobre el compromiso en la defensa de valores igualitarios por parte de los creadores y creadoras teatrales del exilio republicano de 1939, cuyos innovadores discursos narrativos y visuales presentan unos modelos de masculinidad y feminidad representativos del cambio en los paradigmas de género acordes con el creciente protagonismo de las mujeres en la Esfera pública. Aborda la potencial diferenciación de sus realizaciones en relación con su identidad sexual, en especial en cuestiones como la maternidad y la conyugalidad, y la posición de la sociedad ante las mujeres profesionales. Trata asimismo de la influencia que tuvo la agencia femenina republicana en la escena internacional -México, Francia, Argentina, Cuba, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Uruguay-, gracias a la modernidad de sus lenguajes expresivos, entre la Vanguardia y la Tradición, y a su trabajo en el Cine, la Radio, la Televisión, la Pedagogía o la Traducción, que permitió a estas creadoras y gestoras continuar su labor artística durante su exilio. Sin olvidar sus vínculos con su país de origen, fueron los mejores embajadores de aquellas vanguardias históricas que tanto influyeron en la modernización de los discursos ideológicos y estéticos de las sociedades occidentales.
Medicine, Ideas and Culture in the Modern Era, 1900-1946
Motherhood holds a special place in Argentinian culture. Representing Argentinian Mothers examines the historical intersections of medicine and culture that have underpinned the representations of motherhood during the first half of the twentieth century. From the emergence of a medicalised maternal figure at the beginning of the century to the appearance of a new, politicised mother-figure by the time of Eva Perón, the contentious representations of motherhood constitute a privileged viewpoint to explore the tensions and conflicts underlying the country’s modernisation process. At the core of the analysis is an evaluation of the way in which medical representations of motherhood have been implicated, confirmed or contested in other significant areas of the social and cultural fields.
Through detailed examination of a rich selection of sources including medical texts, newspapers, novels, photojournalism, and paintings, Representing Argentinian Mothers adopts an interdisciplinary approach and an innovative framework based on categories and notions drawn from the History of Ideas and Cultural History. By enquiring about the influence of medicine in the field of ideas, beliefs and images, Yolanda Eraso elaborates new insights to understand their interaction, which will appeal to anyone with an interest in the Medical Humanities.
