Hispanic cultures are profoundly shaped by traumas caused by conquest, slavery, wars, dictatorship, guerilla rebellions, revolutions, migration, and exile. The contributions in this volume shed light on the correlations between violence and trauma as well as its (re)presentation in the media. In view of questions pertaining to cultural memory, the essays discuss texts, audiovisual genres, places of remembrance, architecture, museums, etc.
