Abstract

In this essay, the author attempts to realise two different and not completely complementary objectives. On the one hand, his intention is to familiarise readers with the dynamics of Catalan history over time, as well as with the ways in which Catalan historians in particular have helped to shape and determine Catalan nationalist discourse. On the other hand, the author has tried to question the obsessively political nature of both national and nationalist historiography, and the numerous contradictions involved, especially when the object of study is as imprecise as any political projection or desire.

Keywords: Catalan nationalism, Catalonia, nationalism, history
