Los estudios ibéricos en la academia estadounidense
Diálogos, posibilidades y desafíos
This essay proposes to discuss the interdisciplinary field of Iberian Studies with regards to the diverse disciplines that make it up. After a brief discussion of the differences and continuities between Iberian Studies, Peninsular hispanism and Portuguese/Luso-Brazilian Studies, the chapter focuses on the relationship between Catalan, Basque, and Galician Studies and the Iberian epistemological framework. Through a review of various published works that have reflected on how these fields might fit within the Iberian ‘model’, the essay lays out, through a critical lens, the possibilities, limitations, and challenges of this new comparative field with regards to the aforementioned disciplines.
