Pronographic Discourse in Contemporary Spanish Cinema and Literature

Coord. Amélie Florenchie and Marta Álvarez


The scholarly journal Pasavento. Review of Hispanic Studies calls for papers to be published in the dossier “Pornographic Discourse in Contemporary Spanish Cinema and Literature”. Critical and theoretical studies about porno-erotic literature in contemporary Spain or about the recovering of pornographic images and codes in present Spanish cinema are few. In the meanwhile, the pornographisation of postcapitalist societies has become topical and it’s been more than two decades since Porn Studies were born in the USA. It shows a big and double gap: it’s becoming an intellectual emergency to analyze the pornographic discourse and culture in 21st-century Spanish society. The aim of this monographic issue is to offer a broad range of the manifestations of pornography in Spanish movies and books, mainstream productions as well as alternative ones, and to discuss concepts such as gender, biopower, sovereignty or governability applied to pornography.

All those scholars wishing to contribute an article for this special issue may email it to redaccion@pasavento.com. Deadline for submissions: July 31st, 2017. Papers must adhere to the guidelines available at our website.
