Historical Memory in Iberian Literatures (MHLI)

The research group “Historical Memory in Iberian Literatures” (MHLI) from the University of the Basque Country is located at the Faculty of Letters in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain). MHLI analyzes the cultural representations of the historical conflicts that have ravaged the Basque Country and the Iberian Peninsula in the 20th and 21st centuries, especially, the Spanish Civil War and ETA terrorism. The group was created in 2013 and has 13 permanent members and 8 collaborators from foreign universities and research centers. The profile of the members of the group is multidisciplinary and is composed of experts in literature and cultural studies, art historians, anthropologists, etc. The group has developed several research projects, among them a multidisciplinary educational project for Secondary Education students that delves into our most conflicting historical memory.
