3:00 PM Discussion: The Spanish Civil War in the current Spanish Novel In the last few years a lot of novels dealing with Spanish Civil War appeared in the literary market in Spain. This was a strange phenomenon. The society that was born after the Franco's dictatorship was a society without memory. The democratic Spanish society that was born during the so-called "Transition" was based on the silent and oblivion agreements. In this context, Spanish Civil War turned into a taboo: it could open old wounds and it could wake up the old ghosts of the war. The Transition spirit urged the Spanish people to look ahead, towards European progress and modernity. But, suddenly, the society changed and started to look back. In the year 2000, the Asociación por la recuperación de la memoria histórica [Association to recovering of the historical memory] was founded, and a lot of novels dealing with Spanish Civil War were published. It was a great news, because, apparently, literature started to fight against the silent and oblivion established during the Democratic Transition. It seemed, these novels broke the Transition agreements. However, when we start to read these novels we realize they do not question the Transition agreements, but also they strengthen them. In this speech I would want to analyze how these novels reproduces two consensus: the Transition consensus and the Neoliberal consensus.

7:00 PM Stage: How the Other Half Loves Britain's brilliant comic genius, Sir Alan Ayckbourn, penned a fast-paced and hilariously funny theatrical meal, which stands as a classic modern comedy. It is a portrait of three very different marriages that turns into a spirited game of mixed doubles involving sex, jealousy and ingenious stagecraft that only Mr. Ayckbourn can design. Full of clever, razor-sharp dialogue and impeccable split-second timing and twists, How the Other Half Loves promises to leave you in stitches.
