Iberian World

Researcher in charge: César José Olivera Serrano



The objective of our research is the analysis of the Iberian world, in a twofold purpose: on the one hand, the peculiarities and the factors of identity that characterize the different peninsular territories and, at the same time, their internal differences, emphasizing the cultural, political, ideological and religious components. On the other hand, arises the image projected by Iberian to the outside world, the broad lines of their mechanisms of action against other political formations, beyond the concrete joints, and the use of different diplomatic levels to carry out these purposes. Within this general approach, we pay special attention to relations with Portugal, a field little addressed by Hispanic historiography, and in which we have been working for many years, as reflected in our interventions in seminars, conferences invited by our Portuguese colleagues and in the realization of projects and discussion.
