Cultural Distinction and Identity in Catalonia

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter explores the re-emergence of Catalan culture following years of repression during the Franco dictatorship. Of note in this re-emergence is the emphasis Catalan’s governments conferred to the cultural industries—in particular, the multimedia sector—as a vehicle for cultural (and industrial) growth and sustainability, as well as a consideration of the current and future socio-political climate of the sub-state.
