Abstract

El desarrollo del «Estado de las Autonomías» tras el restablecimiento de la democracia en España ha potenciado la proliferación de narrativas sobre el pasado que buscan legitimar las nuevas estructuras administrativas y homogeneizar sus formaciones identitarias. Esto se solapa con un creciente interés de la ciudadanía por el pasado y su escenificación en la esfera pública a través de recreaciones históricas. El estudio analiza tres recreaciones históricas en el noroeste español y su vinculación con discursos constructores de alteridad identitaria a nivel sociopolítico. Igualmente, estudia los intercambios y mediaciones producidas entre el conocimiento académico y su recepción por parte del público, demostrando cómo ciertas cuestiones sociopolíticas se ven reflejadas en eventos aparentemente neutrales.
[ABSTRACT] The development of a quasi-federal administrative framework based on Regional Governments
(Comunidades Autónomas) after the restoration of democracy in Spain, has led to the proliferation of narratives about the past that seek to legitimize the new administrative structures and homogenize their identity formations so as to reinforce their internal social cohesion. This process
is paralleled by a growing public interest in the past and its staging through historical reenactments.
The paper analyzes the connection between both processes in three historical recreations in northwest Spain. Also, it considers the reenactments as spaces where academic knowledge reaches and is assumed in multiple ways by the public. Despite the events seem to be largely neutral at
first sight, our research suggests that they are actually highly ideologically charged.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

The development of a quasi-federal administrative framework based on Regional Governments (Comunidades Autónomas) after the restoration of democracy in Spain, has led to the proliferation of narratives about the past that seek to legitimize the new administrative structures and homogenize their identity formations so as to reinforce their internal social cohesion. This process is paralleled by a growing public interest in the past and its staging through historical reenactments. The paper analyzes the connection between both processes in three historical recreations in northwest Spain. Also, it considers the reenactments as spaces where academic knowledge reaches and is assumed in multiple ways by the public. Despite the events seem to be largely neutral at first sight, our research suggests that they are actually highly ideologically charged.
