A Relational Approach to the Study of Culture in the Iberian Peninsula
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
The term “Iberian studies” has been gaining academic currency, but there is still disagreement about its exact meaning. For some it is a convenient way of combining the official cultures of Portugal and Spain, yet for others the term challenges conventional geographical attitudes. Iberian Modalities brings together contributions from leading international scholars to demonstrate the cultural and linguistic complexity of the field by reflecting on the institutional challenges to the practice of Iberian studies.
“A set of important, timely, and well-written considerations about the history and current state of the fields of Hispanic Studies, arguing for an overdue renewal in the direction of Iberian Studies.”
“Iberian Modalities is an engaging work and one that no doubt will raise much curiosity and heated debate.”
