1. Ashton, Timothy Joseph. THE PHENOMENON OF FÚTBOL IN SPAIN: A STUDY OF FÚTBOL IN SPANISH POLITICS, LITERATURE AND FILM.

Degree: PhD, Spanish and Portuguese, 2009, The Ohio State University

This investigation serves to demonstrate the multifaceted connection that the sport of fútbol has with certain aspects of Spanish society, namely, this cultural phenomenon’s long relationship with Spanish politics, literature and film. Since the formation of Spain’s very first club teams, the sport of fútbol has always demonstrated a strong connection with Spain’s historical socio-political disputes. These disputes have become essential elements in making up the very fabric of Spain and range from questions of nationhood, to questions of identity, culture, politics, ideologies and economy. Throughout this study, I address the dispute that has been taking place between the intellectual classes and the fútboling community and defend that although the relationship between intellectuals and fútbol has not been as public as fútbol’s relationship to politics, it has however existed throughout the entire history of the sport. Many intellectuals have deemed the sport of fútbol as an unsuitable topic for intellectual areas such as literature and artistic mediums like film. In this study, I uncover that some of Spain’s most highly praised literary figures had a passion for the sport which they alluded to, sometimes on numerous occasions, as central themes in their work. This genreof literature, which I call “kick-lit”, is experiencing a recent growth not only in acceptance, but also in popularity in Spain, Latin America and throughout the world. There has been a similar distrust among the intellectual classes when it comes to films dealing with the sport of fútbol. In this investigation I prove that films covering the sport of fútbol, which I have labeled “kick-flicks”, also have a long standing tradition in Spain – stemming back to the era of silent film. I address a number of polemic issues pertaining to the difficulties that films dealing with the sport of fútbol have experienced over the years, and I highlight a variety of possible solutions to sidestep these problems until they are resolved. The “kick-flick” genre is also experiencing a resurgence in popularity in Spain, and its future looks bright. Fútbol and film are the two most powerful and fastest growing social phenomena of the past one hundred years; it seems natural that the two should go together. Through this investigation I hope to draw attention to the multifaceted avenues through which the sport of fútbol can be investigated. Fútbol is a social phenomenon that has been proven to be capable of captivating the masses since it is now the most intense passion of the Spanish people.
