The “Brigada Político Social” was Franco’s political police force, although its deepest roots go back to the Restoration. Among its most prominent agents were essayists, novelists and agitators whose production provides clues about Franco’s repression in the Valencian Community and in Spain.
In this extraordinary session of the permanent seminar of the REPERCRI research group, the journalist and researcher Lucas Marco will delve into the history of the Political-Social Brigade, focusing his attention on figures such as Mauricio Carlavilla, Eduardo Comín Colomer and Tomás Cossías, three members of the brigade who combined their work in the repressive apparatus of the regime with propaganda and literature.
Participation in this session, which will be held in person at the Faculty of Philology, Translation and Communication of the University of Valencia, will be open to all interested students and researchers. In order to receive the working material for the session, it will be necessary to register before Monday 21 November, using the “registration form” that you will find in the next column of this entry.
