The aim of the meeting it so exchange recent findings, research tips, bibliographies and to discuss relates difficulties that arise in our research. For this session, we are especially interested in issues related to geographical exploration and empire; trade, personal, literary, cultural and artistic exchange; exile and displacement (of people, texts and objects); changing definitions of what is now Spain across history; national(-istic) narratives of Iberian and Hispanic culture, literature and art; Iberia seen by foreign travelers, writers, scholars and artists; etc.

If you are interested in attending or presenting a short presenting your work by sending us an email to before Tuesday 27/02/2018. Presentations are very informal and should last for no longer than 10 minutes. You are very welcome to bring an image/text, introduce it in a couple of minutes highlighting the challenges that it is posing to your own research, and then ask questions to the group.

Collaborative research is central to the Maius Workshop’s ethos, and we aim to encourage dialogue rather than showcase fully-resolved material. The Maius Workshop is an interdisciplinary group that brings together graduate students, early career scholars and established researchers dealing with Iberian and Latin American cultural(s).
