Krauel, Javier Associate Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Krauel's research focuses on the theory of emotions and on nineteenth- and twentieth-century Spanish and Catalan cultures. His first book, Imperial Emotions: Cultural Responses to Myths of Empire in Fin-de-Siècle Spain (Liverpool UP, 2013), reconsiders debates about historical memory from the perspective of the theory of emotions. Its main claim is that the demise of the Spanish empire in 1898 spurred a number of contradictory emotional responses, ranging from mourning and melancholia to indignation, pride, and shame. He has also written on the essayistic tradition of national self-reflection, the relationship between World War I and the Spanish Civil War, and the emotional dimension of political movements.
