By amputating entire cultures from its purview, Hispanism skews the historical picture and misrepresents the contemporary system of relevance. Iberianism seeks to create propitious institutional conditions to incorporate to a pre-existing Humanities framework cultural realities that run against the grain of traditional disciplinary monolingualism. Such a model cannot be established without incorporating awareness that the various cultures’ relative positions in the Iberian system are the outcome of a militancy that has encouraged the negation of the other, to the point of forcing the silenced players into an institutional imperceptibility that has immediate effects on the marketplace. From an Iberian studies perspective, culture appears as a modality of being or, better yet, a transitional stage in the historical relations among social agents in peninsular space. Iberianism arose from the understanding that the deep-seated commonality of Iberian life manifests itself authentically only in modalities which cannot be identified with the subjacent unity without attacking its very essence.
