Book Description

Intellectual Philanthropy: The Seduction of the Masses by Aurélie Vialette examines representations of charity in modern Spanish literature and culture. Through detailed studies of collective readings, dramas, manuals, catechisms, and fiction, Vialette reveals how depictions of urban philanthropic activities can inform our understanding of interactions in the economic, cultural, religious, and educational spheres, class power dynamics, and gender roles in urban Spanish society.
