The Routledge Companion to Iberian Studies

Editor: Javier Muñoz-Basols, Laura Lonsdale, Manuel Delgado

The Routledge Companion to Iberian Studies takes an important place in the scholarly landscape by bringing together a compelling collection of essays that reflect the evolving ways in which researchers think and write about the Iberian Peninsula.

Features include:

  • A comprehensive approach to the different languages and cultural traditions of the Iberian Peninsula;
  • Five chronological sections spanning the period from the Middle Ages to the 21st century;
  • A state-of-the-art account of the field, reaffirming Iberian Studies as a dynamic and evolving discipline with promising areas for future research;
  • An array of topics of an interdisciplinary nature (history and politics, language and literature, cultural studies and visual arts), focusing on the cultural distinctiveness of Iberian traditions;
  • New perspectives and avenues of inquiry that aim to promote a comparative mode within Iberian Studies and Hispanism.

The fifty authoritative, original essays will provide readers with a diverse cross-section of texts that will enrich their knowledge of Iberian Studies from an international perspective.
