This chapter provides a concrete example of a university community engagement project deriving from an annual series of commemorative events that capture the imagination of specific communities in certain countries. The project centres on the Semana Santa (Holy Week) in a Southern European context. It juxtaposes a left-wing reading of the narrative and commemorative events involved in this example of political education against right wing renderings as manifest in Spain during the Franco era. Challenges to the latter manifestations of franquismo are also underlined.
