Currently studying Spanish, History and English Lit - was looking to do an EPQ looking at how faithful to actual events in Spanish literature in the civil war time period- but I've now started my History A level course and were learning about the Spanish civil war!!
So now I'm sort of clueless - does anyone have any ideas?

Same idea different time period? I know quite little about Spanish history, but a friend of mine did her coursework on the Spanish Golden Age and loved it, so maybe comparing literature/reputation to reality on that?

Hi! I’m currently a Y13 student, actually studying the exact same subjects as you! I’ve also focused my EPQ around Spanish history and am looking at the development of Catalan nationalism post-Franco up until the 2017 referendum. There are lots of areas of both Spanish and Latin American history outside of the Spanish civil war that you can explore. If this isn’t included in your History spec, maybe you could focus more on Franco’s regime than the war itself? You could look at his policies and the way they transformed Spain from a liberal, verging on socialist, state to a fascist one. If you’re struggling to find topics to look at for Spanish history, you could also focus more on Latin America, as it’s rich with history. For example, you could study Pinochet’s regime, the Mexican or Cuban revolutions, or even the colonisation of Latin America if you’re looking for an older area of history. I’m sure there are lots of pieces of literature surrounding those times in history. I hope this helped!

Thank you for your help! I was actually slightly mistaken and in our Spain topic, we study the Second Republic, Civil war and then the early and late portions of Franco's regime.
Previously I'd thought about perhaps making some sort of comparison between Latin American dialects vs Castillian Spanish but never about the history. I shall have a look!!
