"From the Mouth of Babes: Images of Children in Spanish Film," Ana Vivancos, assistant professor of Spanish Culture, Literature and Film. She is interested in questions of representation of the nation in Spanish popular film.The aim of the project is to analyze how the images of innocence (or perversion) of children in Spanish cinema from the 1970s to the early 2000s and how they serve as a metaphor for the limits imposed by social codes, and to support generalized cultural practices. The project will research the ways children stand for the marginal and the repressed and therefore provide audiences with melodramatic stand-ins that justify mechanisms of power.Part of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts 2012-2013 Fellows Series.
