Chapter Summary

Iberian studies emerged contemporaneously with Transatlantic Studies, as two different alternatives to Hispanism. As a reformulation of the discipline's monolingualism, Hispanic Atlanticism excludes more than it encompasses, since it expels the cultures that either did not travel along the imperial routes or were smothered under the language of colonial administration first and national simplification later. But Transatlantic Studies need not be confined to the Hispanic law. The "trans", that is to say, the particle indicating movement and a beyond, suggests a dynamic approach that can, if taken to heart, add to the complexity of Iberian Studies. This Ibero-American Atlantic awaits its theoriser and all the scholars that will reveal its concrete ramifications. As soon as light is cast on this network of reciprocal inspirations, a completely new picture emerges full of interest and discovery.

Keywords: Hispanic law; Iberian studies; Ibero-Atlanticism; Transatlantic Studies
