Start the New Year with the online exhibition “Exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere”

It’s time to relax and discover through text, images and sound a small sample of the contribution made by people in the British Isles closely engaged with the global Hispanic world, regardless of their birth, religion or political allegiance, as well as by those people who came from the Hispanic world to the British Isles as visitors, exiles and/or migrants.

The exhibition Exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere”  is the outcome of the first phase of research of the AHRC-funded project ‘The Hispanic-Anglosphere: transnational networks, global communities (late 18-early 20th century) in partnership with the National Trust under the curatorship of the project’s Principal Investigator Dr Graciela Iglesias-Rogers.

The information throughout this exhibition has been peer-reviewed and it is based on disclosed and verifiable sources; it is being published under open-access criteria with guidelines for citation.  Just click HERE or on any of these panels below to start exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere…
