Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the key themes discussed in the book Theorising the Ibero-American Atlantic. The book seeks to delineate methodological, theoretical, and temporal frameworks and pathways for engaging Ibero-American Atlantic studies. It is divided into three parts. The first part, "Defining the Ibero-American Atlantic", contains four essays offering different yet complementary theoretical perspectives on the Atlantic basin; four views of how the field might rise to the challenge and assert itself as one of many valid organising frameworks for historical inquiry for new generations in the twenty-first century. The second part, "Early Modern Exchanges: Identities and Ties (1492-1850)", offers four distinct approaches to the history of gender, race, ideas, and culture in the Ibero-American Atlantic. The third part, "Transatlantic Migrations: Culture and History Reconsidered (1850-today)", probes the meanings and validity of an Atlantic studies approach for the modern and contemporary periods.

Keywords: Atlantic basin; Ibero-American Atlantic studies; transatlantic migrations
