Historians have long described the fascist tendency to recast or idealize an imagined past, seen both in Benito Mussolini’s desire to create a new Rome and Adolf Hitler’s desire to make Germany “great” again. In Spain, after the loss of its colonies in 1898, the fascist Falange pushed a mythical vision of “Hispanidad,” a type of Spanish-Nationalism that attempted to recast the Spanish colonial period as benign.

Academic freedom is a central idea in modern scholarship. Even if a precise definition of it is difficult to state, it can be understood as the freedom for members of academia to teach and research without being restrained by political or social surveillance. The concept is not legally defined, it proceeds from customs, conventions or even traditions. Legally, discussions on academic freedom fall into the category of freedom of speech, even if this concept only partly corresponds.
