Volum 7 of Abriu, the journal edited by Galician and Portuguese Studies of the University of Barcelona and José Saramago Chair / CLP Instituto Camões, Autonomous University of Barcelona, opens with the monograph "Glocal Galicia: redefining Galician Culture in the Global Age", edited by José Colmeiro, in which specialists from New Zealand and United States universities have participated. The articles analyze the recent documentary production, in particular Lois Patiño’ films, the digital heritage, the disneyfication of Santiago de Compostela and the fictionalization of a queer transnational Galician identity in Mario Regueira. The "Miscellaneous" section includes studies on the Second Republic and the Spanish Civil War in the Spanish-Portuguese nationalism and in Carlos Drummond de Andrade’s poetry. It is completed with studies of the unpublished correspondence between Rafael Dieste and María Zambrano, contemporary art in a novel by Ricardo Lisias, and an approach to Emma Ríos as an author of a graphic novel. The "Reviews" section includes notes on translations from Portuguese to Catalan, the biography of Rosalía de Castro by M.X. Lama and a book by J. Colmeiro on Galician culture in globalization. It is published simultaneously in print and as an e-book. Further information:
