Os nacionalismos ibéricos nos estudos sobre o romanceiro tradicionallock_openopen access checkpeer reviewed
Concerning the Pan-Hispanic balladry field, Iberian peripheral areas (such as Catalan, Galician and Portuguese) have been carelessly regarded, although this has not ever been admitted by Spanish academic criticism. It is known that peripheral Iberian oral traditions collections were, in the very beginning, ruled by nationalist demands. But we believe it is also true that, nowadays, the Castilian centrist point of view on peripheral balladry traditions displays the same nationalist shape. In order to illustrate this statement, we settle our discussion on several recent examples of critical studies and editorial activity devoted to the Pan-Hispanic balladry.
