HISTAGRA: RESEARCH GROUP ON THE AGRICULTURAL AND POLITICAL HISTORY OF THE RURAL WORLD. 19th and 20th Centuries
The HISTAGRA Research Group (Historia agraria e política do mundo rural. Séculos XIX e XX / Agricultural and Political History of the Rural World. 19th and 20th Centuries) has its origin in the publication of Dr Ramón Villares Paz’s work A propiedade da terra en Galicia: 1500-1936 (‘Land Ownership in Galicia, 1500-1936 [1982]), which opened up a new line of work at the Department of Contemporary History of the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (USC). Coordinated by Dr Lourenzo Fernández Prieto, HISTAGRA has been a competitive reference group (Galician acronym: GRC) since 2006. A total of 17 projects funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture as well as the Galician Government have been awarded to HISTAGRA in the past ten years, and eight doctoral theses have been supervised by the Group: eight of them were directed by Lourenzo Fernández Prieto, four by Ramón Villares Paz and one by Miguel Cabo Villaverde; 11 master’s dissertations have also been completed. The research developed by HISTAGRA is organised into four main lines: Environmental History and Forest History; Technological Change in Agriculture; The Rural World from Liberalism to the Second Republic; and The Civil War, Francoism and the Transition.

INTER-UNIVERSITY PROJECT ‘NAMES AND VOICES’: A DATABASE OF VICTIMS OF THE FRANCOIST REPRESSION IN GALICIA, 1936-1939
The Research Project ‘Nomes e Voces’ / ‘Names and Voices’ was born in 2006 from an agreement between the three Galician universities and the Department of Culture of the Galician Government, with the purposes of studying repression in Galicia during the Civil War and Francoism, compiling information and providing data about the victims. The team includes a number of specialists in the contemporary history of Galicia, directed by professor Lourenzo Fernández Prieto. Emilio Grandío, Xosé Manoel Núñez, Julio Prada, María Jesús Souto and Dionisio Pereira act as coordinators. The team is completed with researchers Andrés Domínguez Almansa, Gustavo Hervella García, Chus Martínez and Xurxo Pantaleón. The research is founded on dossiers of legal proceedings (2,608, with over 400,000 pages), town council civil registers (310), oral sources (512 interviews) and others. Permanently under construction, the database adds new names and corrections on an ongoing basis as a result of the progress of the research and social cooperation. The time frame of this phase of research is the 1936-1939 period, although data from subsequent years which were compiled during the research process are also included. The Database of Victims of the Francoist Repression in Galicia, which contains the personal details of each victim and the repression procedures they underwent, was released in 2009 (http://vitimas.nomesevoces.net/). The Group’s main publications include Informe de resultados. Vítimas Galicia (1936-1939) (‘Results Report: Victims in Galicia, 1936-1939’ [Meubook, 2010]), Memoria de guerra y cultura de paz en el siglo xx. De España a América, debates para una historiografía (‘Memory of War and Culture of Peace in the 20th Century: From Spain to America, Debates for Historiography’ [Ediciones Trea, 2012]) and A represión franquista na comarca da Coruña. Vidas na memoria (‘The Francoist Repression in the Region of A Coruña: Lives in Memory’ [Edicións Laiovento, 2012]). For the present days, the Group has signed a Research Agreement with the Provincial Council of Lugo.
