The End, Again: Degeneration and Visual Culture in Modern Spain

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Awarded a Millard Meiss Publication Fund grant from the College Art Association. The End, Again investigates the ways that discourses of medicine and the nascent fields of criminal psychology, with their medical illustrations and photography of pathological and degenerative bodies, infiltrated arts criticism. Between 1874 and 1923. Spain is a crucially important case study of what was at stake in the discourses of fin de siglo degeneration; namely, the fear of not being modern, of being left behind, and of being a primitive, even atavistic nation.
