Colóquio Internacional ‘Tradução de Poesia na Península Ibérica no Século XX

Colóquio Internacional ‘Tradução de Poesia na Península Ibérica no Século XX

A Cátedra de Estudos Ibéricos da Universidade de Évora, dirigida por Antonio Sáez Delgado, acolhe no dia 27 de setembro de 2023 o Colóquio Internacional ‘Tradução de Poesia na Península Ibérica no século XX’, organizado por Miguel F. Mochila (University of Puerto Rico).

Esta iniciativa pretende analisar a tradução de poesia entre os diversos sistemas literários ibéricos ao longo do século XX, assumindo-a como índice cultural particularmente significativo, por permitir, adotando uma perspetiva transnacional, observar aspetos, autores, textos e dinâmicas que os cânones nacionais habitualmente omitem.

Pretende-se, assim, abordar e analisar as traduções de poesia existentes entre as várias línguas peninsulares, identificando quem traduz, o que se traduz, porque se traduz e como se traduz.

Roberta Johnson, donor of the UC Consortium

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese at UC Davis has announced that thanks to a generous gift from Roberta Lee Johnson (BA and MA, UC Davis; professor emerita, University of Kansas), the UC Iberian Studies Consortium has been formed, and will be headquartered at UC Davis. 

The UC Iberian Studies Consortium promotes the study of the languages, literatures, and cultures of the Iberian Peninsula, including Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Galician, Euskara/Basque, and Asturian. It was founded in 2011 by Robert Patrick Newcomb (UC Davis) as the UC Comparative Iberian Studies Working Group, and received seed funding from the UC Humanities Research Institute. It has hosted nine meetings at six UC campuses, including UC Davis. Newcomb and Silvia Bermúdez (UC Santa Barbara) have co-directed the group since its founding.

Robert Patrick Newcomb will serve as the Consortium’s inaugural Director, with Silvia Bermúdez serving as Co-Director. The Advisory Board will consist of Eloi Grasset (UC Santa Barbara), Covadonga Lamar Prieto (UC Riverside), and Santiago Morales-Rivera (UC Irvine). Ana Peluffo (Chair, UC Davis Department of Spanish and Portuguese) and Ryan Advincula (Assistant Director of Development, UC Davis College of Letters and Science)  will work with the officers to manage and build upon the Consortium’s endowment. 

The Consortium will hold a meeting at UC Davis in May 2024 to honor the gift, career, and academic interests of Roberta Johnson, who has been a devoted member of the group since its inception.

IStReS database reaches 2500 references

IStReS database reaches 2500 references

In June 2023, the IStReS database has reached and surpassed 2500 references on Iberian Studies, including books, book chapters and journal articles. Among the latest publications added to the database are Enric Bou and Silvia Lunardi’s Iberismo(s), Esther Gimeno Ugalde’s article “Conceptualizaciones del espacio ibérico: posibles aportaciones para los Estudios de Traducción”, or a selection of Conceição Meireles Pereira and David Wacks’ publications.

The work of our latest collaborator in the project, Miriam de Sousa (Centro de Estudos Comparatistas, FLUL) has been central in helping the database grow beyond this symbolic number of 2500 references.

The IStReS database is available through the project website, and also directly and freely through Zotero

The ISTRES – Iberian Studies Reference Site project ( offers several tools for researchers in the field of Iberian Studies. One of these tools, central to the project, is a database of scholarly publications after the year 2000 (inclusive), dealing with historic and cultural relations between at least two Iberian “cultural areas” (Spain and Portugal, Portugal and Galicia, etc.).

Enric Bou and Silvia Lunardi (eds.). Venice: Ca’ Foscari, 2023

This volume is the result of the debates held at Ca’ Foscari University during the Iberismo(s) study day, aimed at discussing the ethical, theoretical and methodological limits of Iberian Studies and demonstrating their applications. Far from a unidirectional reading, the works gathered here explore the multiple aspects of Iberism, or rather ­Iberisms: different aspects such as the literary, cultural, economic and political ones are taken into account and interpreted on the basis of their plurality – since the diversity of actors, discourses, and contexts makes it impossible to outline a closed narrative.

According to Claudio Guillén, “national literature is […] an institution that is not only insufficient, but also spurious and fraudulent”, hence the commitment to redefine this field of study. Moreover, its analytical perspective is associated with the ‘crisis of Hispanism’ as a ‘uninational’ and monolingual paradigm. Iberian Studies as such do not take root in a simple broadening of the object of research in order to give space – and thus a new location – to the more peripheral realities; it is rather a theoretical and methodological reformulation in constant development, as all the essays in this volume attest.
