Publication Details Click to collapse Cite/Export


  • "The term 'Iberian studies' has been gaining academic currency, but there is still disagreement about its exact meaning. For some it is a convenient way of combining the official cultures of Portugal and Spain, yet for others the term challenges conventional geographical attitudes. Iberian Modalities brings together contributions from leading international scholars to demonstrate the cultural and linguistic complexity of the field by reflecting on the institutional challenges to the practice of Iberian studies."--Publisher.


  • Includes bibliographical references (pages 243-258) and index.
