Everybody Knows What is Going on in Catalonia: Democracy, State, and Republican Insurrection
September 29 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In 2020, the tenth season of The Process was released, which is a political TV show with villains, heroes, twists and cliffhangers. Many Catalans feel that show properly reflects the current conflict in Spain. Using this as a jumping off point, event speaker Francisco Morales will discuss how the referendum of Catalonian independence, held on October 1, 2017, was probably the most important act of civil disobedience in the history of Europe. Further, he will discuss the goals of the referendum and the nature and horizon of democracy in Spain, including the origins of the conflict and present policy options.
Speaker: Francisco Morales, Spanish & Portuguese Studies at UF
