Iberian Modalities

Portugal acquired particular relevance in the non-independentist projects of Iberian sub-state nationalisms seeking to assert their national cultures. Portugal would be the most effective counterweight to Castile. In the Catalanist case, Portugal could complete a phase of the confusing, early 20th century ‘imperial’ project of Catalan cultural modernism and conservative nationalism. Vital Catalonia would lead and export a formula of multinational empire based on plurality, cooperation and brotherhood. Portugal would also be the reference point for affirming Galicia's autonomous cultural existence as a national community, and would help elevate the social and cultural status of Galician language and culture. It would also give Galicia a unique peninsular role as the privileged intermediary between Portugal and the other peninsular nations. Portuguese reaction to this different but complementary appeals from the Iberian periphery was, however, much less enthusiastic.
