Research in Hispanic Studies
Our approach to Hispanic Studies emphasises a boundary-crossing, transnational vision of the networks of cultural history, memory, literature and identity that crisscross the Hispanic world – from Europe to the Caribbean, the Americas, Africa and the Pacific. We have particular strengths in: -The cultural histories of Iberia (Spain, Portugal, Galicia), the Hispanic Atlantic and the Caribbean. -Connections and encounters between Hispanic, Lusophone, Anglophone and Francophone cultures. -Mobility (travel, migration, exile), memory and identity across the Hispanic world.
