18 July 2016 marks the 80th anniversary of the military uprising that led to the start of the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939). What were the causes of the conflict and why does it still polarise Spanish society and raise passions around the world?

This course gives an overview of the causes, events and aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. You will also look at how each side conveyed its political message through culture, and the impact of the war on contemporary society and culture.

Nicola Gilmour lived in Madrid between 1989 and 1996. She is a Senior Lecturer in the Spanish and Latin American Studies Programme at Victoria University.
