Fusion success: Spanish Civil War memorials and tourism

I have been fortunate to win Fusion funding to conduct research into the link between Spanish Civil War memorials and tourism. The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) is a focus for war memorials to the victims of the struggle. They often form the backdrop for tourism and they also attract tourists in their own right. My study will investigate the link between political identity and pilgrimage , using the renowned Spanish Civil War walking tours  in Barcelona and Madrid as sites for data collection. The research will adopt the method of participant observation, and it will take place in April 2016.
