The Catalan-language press from 1868 to 1939

Josep Maria Casasús


The cultural Renaixença (Renaissance) movement in Catalonia spurred the swift development of the press in Catalonia. The journalism
that took off during that period laid the groundwork for the ensuing stages, which showed extraordinary vitality spanning a period
from 1868 to 1939. At the same time, this period can be divided into two stages: a transition, which ranged from the restoration
of the monarchy (1876) until the end of World War I (1918), and a stage of modernisation, which approximately covers the years
between the world wars (1919-1939). However, the Franco dictatorship destroyed the role that journalised once played as an indispensable
tool in the advancement of the discontinuous process of civil and cultural reform in Catalonia.
