Iberian Studies: The Growth of a Field of Study and Its Contributions to Peninsular Identity Debates
Iberian Studies have experienced an exponential growth over the past decade and have inspired research and academic debates about cultural relations in the Iberian peninsula. The impetus for literary studies has permeated in other areas, such as historiography, which has focused on Iberisms as a centrifugal alternative approach to State identities. Additionally, in relation to Anthropology, the study of ‘borders’ have raised the contingent and porous nature of national borders. These themes are addressed in the work titled Iberian Studies: Reflections Across Borders and Disciplines (ed. by N. Codina Solà and T. Pinheiro, 2019).
