Iberian Modalities

Liverpool University Press

This chapter argues that the shift from Hispanism to Iberian Studies presents a number of significant challenges, both theoretical and practical, for the study and teaching of literatures in the Iberian Peninsula: a new conceptualization of literary geographies that renounces the monolingual foundation of national literatures and focuses instead on cultural interactions across linguistic and political boundaries; a rethinking of the historiographic assumptions and periodizations, which have often been automatically extrapolated from the trajectory of one particular literature (Spanish) and applied to other literatures without regard for the specificities of each cultural formation; the reformulation of language instruction in programs of literary study, in order to guarantee the multilingual competence of future scholars; and the study of disciplinary history —the scrutiny of the intellectual traditions in the field— as a critical curricular component in doctoral programs.

Keywords:   Iberian Studies, national literatures, literary historiography, multilingualism, teaching, doctoral programs, literary studies
