16–18 November 2017, Technische Universität Chemnitz (Germany)
The cultural and linguistic diversity of the Iberian Peninsula (the Basque Country, Catalonia, Galicia, Spain and Portugal) calls for a redefinition of the practices of national philology that goes beyond Portuguese and Spanish languages and literatures. Iberian Studies is a research field with increasing significance that seeks to reflect the complexity of the Iberian Peninsula and to analyse its different literatures, identities, cultures and history from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective. Under the main theme “New Approaches and Research Practices in Iberian Studies,” the II Jornadas de Estudios Culturales Ibéricos will provide a discussion platform for all those working in the field in order to assess its horizons and challenges.
This conference will join academics and young scholars of different disciplines such as cultural studies, history, literary studies or sociology.
The conference will take place at Chemnitz University, 16–18 November 2017.
