Genre, sexe et nation : représentations et pratiques politiques en Espagne (xixe-xxe siècles)
Gender, sex and nation: representations and political practices in Spain (19th-20th centuries)

Gender, sex and nation: representations and political practices in Spain (19th-20th centuries) The articles assembled in this dossier analyse various aspects relating to practices and symbolic representations of gender, sex and nation appearing in different Spanish political cultures in the 19th and 20th centuries, with a counterpoint on the relationship between masculinity and national identity in 19th-century France. The point of departure is the conviction that there is a very close connection between the processes of nation-building, gender-based assignations of identity and mainstreaming of sexuality. Thus, the construction of a specific national identity in terms of politics and discourse entails the establishment of a particular system of sex/gender. The various articles show the relevance of this approach for an understanding of how the Spanish nation was built, by questioning representations of the body of the nation, the nationalisation of gender or sexuality or sexuality as a vector for access to/denial of citizenship.
