Taking Itamar Even-Zohar’s ‘polisystem theory’ and Pierre Bourdieu’s ‘theory of the field of cultural production’ as a starting point, the objective of this research is to analyse the development of Galician theatre and the re-configuration of the literary system during the period of institutionalization of the Galician culture after Franco’s death and the coming of democracy and political autonomy. By studying the 105 Cadernos published by the Escola Dramática Galega between 1978 and 1994, which cover a wide range of literary activities, the conflicts and tensions between different models and repertoires as well as the position and the contradictions of the Escola Dramática Galega during that process are brought to light. Gonzalez Millán’s theoretical concepts of ‘literary nationalism’ and ‘national literature’ will be useful in order to analyse the role that drama had on the nation-building process in Galicia and the consequences that that fact had on the development of the system. Conclusions are also drawn concerning the determinations imposed on the development of contemporary drama by the historical subsidiary position of the Galician literary system.
