En tiempos peligrosos
This archive is dedicated to female friendships in dangerous times. One of the most dangerous times for women was the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) and the dictatorship of Francisco Franco (1939-75), when the freedoms achieved by women during the Spanish Second Spanish Republic (1931-39) were lost. For the research and completion of this archive, profs. Elizabeth Horan (Department of English), Carmen de Urioste-Azcorra (School of International Letters and Cultures), and Cynthia Tompkins (Schools of International Letters and Cultures) received an IHR Seed Grant (2017). The final outcome of the grant was the book Preciadas cartas (Renacimiento, 2019) and this web archive in Omeka. For the web archive prof. Urioste worked with Jennifer Byron (Spanish PhD, 2019).
