Iberian Studies in Practice
Program arranged by the forum LLC Luso-Brazilian. Presiding: Robert Patrick Newcomb, Univ. of California, Davis
Speakers: Silvia Bermúdez, Univ. of California, Santa Barbara; Luisa Elena Delgado, Univ. of Illinois, Urbana; Joseba Gabilondo, Michigan State Univ.; Thomas Harrington, Trinity Univ.
In recent years scholars have proposed radically reconceptualizing peninsular (or Iberian) studies. Much has been said regarding the need for a “theory” of Iberian studies, though less attention has been paid to how Iberian studies are taught and to program building. Panelists discuss the pragmatics of Iberian studies in a time of disciplinary crisis.
