   Barandova T. L., Baturina N. I. Effects of symbolic policy towards Catalans in Spain (case of visual image)
   The paper analyzes the effects of symbolic policy towards Catalans in Spain. The main goal of the study is to identify (stereotyped) symbolic elements constructing the image of a Catalan as a member of the ethnic group used in Spanish media and cinema. Photos from three Spanish newspapers and one film, in which the Catalan national identity is represented, were under analysis. Based on these sources, the authors conclude that Catalans have a strong ethnic and regional identity. They constitute a modern and advanced group and prefer to identify themselves with Europe rather than with Spain.
   Key words: symbolic policy; ethnopolitics; visual methods; national stereotype; identity; Catalan independence
