Through case studies of four prominent cultural products, Narrating War in Peace takes a longitudinal approach to the influence and conceptualization of the Civil War in democratic Spain. Stafford uses two of Agustí Centelles' photographs and Picasso's Guernica (1937) to explore stories told about the war in cultural production during the transition to democracy. How have these narratives morphed in the twenty-first century in light of the polemics about historical memory? Stafford identifies three prominent shifts in the cultural memory of the Spanish Civil War in the last three decades of Spanish democracy in these four cultural spaces: a shift from hero to victim, from ideology to affect, and finally, from trauma to identification through connection with the past.
