UC Comparative Iberian Studies

The UC Comparative Iberian Studies Working Group brings together twelve University of California faculty members representing six campuses (Davis, Berkeley, Irvine, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Merced), plus two non-UC faculty members, to discuss how peninsular literary and cultural studies might be reimagined – and reinvigorated – “from the Iberian margin.” We aim to bring Spanish/Castilian literature, which has historically formed the core of the peninsular studies canon, into dialogue with writers, texts and cultural documents from the Portuguese, Catalan, Galician, Basque, and North African-immigrant traditions. Our goals are to facilitate discussion across Iberian languages and literatures between group members, and to model a form of peninsular studies that is multilingual, multifocal, and driven by dialogue.

On May 4, 2012, we will host a public symposium, “Other Iberias: Comparative Iberian Studies,” at UC Davis. UC Comparative Iberian Studies is generously supported for 2011-12 by the University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI).

    Buenas tardes,

    En primer lugar felicitar por el blog. En segundo lugar me gustaría saber dónde remitir información sobre un mestrado en ensino de nueva creación en Portugal con la finalidad de poder divulgarlo.

    Muchas gracias.
