Of late the term Iberian Studies has been gaining academic currency, but its semantic scope still fluctuates. For some it is a convenient way of combining the official cultures of two states, Portugal and Spain; yet for others the term opens up disciplinary space, altering established routines. A relational approach to Iberian Studies shatters the state’s epistemological frame and complexifies the field through the emergence of lines of inquiry and bodies of knowledge hitherto written off as irrelevant. This timely volume brings together contributions from leading international scholars who demonstrate the cultural and linguistic complexity of the field by reflecting on the institutional challenges to the practice of Iberian Studies. As such, the book will be required reading for all those working in the field.

Puts forward a new agenda for Hispanic Studies. Brings together some of the world's most distinguished Hispanists, including David Nirenberg (Deborah R. and Edgar D. Jannotta Professor in the Committee on Social Thought, University of Chicago), Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht (Albert Guérard Professor of Literature, Stanford University) and Antoni Martí Monterde (rofessor in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory at Universitat de Barcelona). Required reading for scholars in Hispanic Studies.
