La ‘Hispanic-Anglosphere’: ¿qué es y para qué sirve?

La charla tiene por fin presentar The Hispanic-Anglosphere from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century – An Introduction, ed. Graciela Iglesias-Rogers (Londres y Nueva York: Routledge, 2021) el primer libro de la red internacional de académicos y no-académicos que investigan la contribución de personas de las Islas Británicas (Irlanda, Reino Unido, Islas del Canal de la Mancha, Isla de Man) que se involucraron con el mundo hispánico global, así como por aquellos del mundo hispánico que fueron a las Islas Británicas como visitantes, exiliados y/o inmigrantes desde fines del siglo dieciocho a principios del siglo veinte – un período marcado, como hoy, por pandemias, incertidumbre social, descolocación de potencias globales y el alza de radicalismos. Al trascender fronteras políticas y culturales, estos individuos, networks y comunidades contribuyeron a crear una Hispanic-Anglosphere (una esfera hispánica-anglo y/o anglo-hispánica). Con diez capítulos, 25 biografías y siete estudios de cultura material, el libro ofrece nuevas perspectivas en  infinidad de temas: comercio, artes, educación, lenguaje, política, prensa, religión, biodiversidad, filantropía, abolicionismo e imperialismo. Una copia está disponible en preview parcial en Google Books.

Graciela Iglesias-Rogers es profesora asociada (Senior Lecturer) en Historia Europea y del Mundo Hispánico Global y directora del Centro de Investigación de Historia Moderna (MHRC) en la universidad de Winchester.

José Brownrigg-Gleeson Martínez es investigador postdoctoral (Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow) en la National University of Ireland, Galway. Doctor en Historia por la Universidad de Salamanca, centra su investigación en las interacciones entre Irlanda, la diáspora irlandesa y el mundo hispánico en los siglos XVIII y XIX.

New book now out!

We are delighted to announce that in a year like no other, somehow, we managed to complete the research, compile all the material and Routledge has now published the first book emanating from our project: The Hispanic-Anglosphere from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century – An Introduction (New York and London: Routledge, 2021).

Book Description

The Hispanic and Anglo worlds are often portrayed as the Cain and Abel of Western culture, antagonistic and alien to each other. This book challenges such view with a new critical conceptual framework – the ‘Hispanic-Anglosphere’ – to open a window into the often surprising interactions of individuals, transnational networks and global communities that, it argues, made of the British Isles (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) a crucial hub for the global Hispanic world, a launching-pad and a bridge between Spanish Europe, Africa, America and Asia in the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. Perhaps not unlike today, that was a time marked by social uncertainty, pandemics, the dislocation of global polities and the rise of radicalisms. The volume offers insights on many themes including trade, the arts, education, language, politics, the press, religion, biodiversity, philanthropy, anti-slavery and imperialism. Established academics and rising stars from different continents and disciplines combined original, primary research with a wide range of secondary sources to produce a rich collection of ten case-studies, 25 biographies and seven samples of interpreted material culture, all presented in an accessible style appealing to scholars, students and the general reader alike.

A historical perspective on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Living as we are under the shadow of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), a finding in the archives that challenges assumptions about the exact place of birth of William Gibbs, founder of the National Trust Tyntesfield and leading figure in the Hispanic-Anglosphere has acquired an unexpected, yet also prescient meaning.

Read all about it in ‘Key Locations: the birthplace of William Gibbs in Madrid’ – the latest addition to our ongoing online exhibition ‘Exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere’.

Keep calm, wash your hands and enjoy!

The British Isles – hub of radicalism

We are back with three intriguing and thought-provoking profiles of key Individuals in the Hispanic-Anglosphere.  The articles penned by our colleague Arturo Zoffmann-Rodriguez offer valuable insights into a world marked by intense radicalism, political exile, cultural experimentation and solidarity networks with the British Isles as its centre in the years leading to the threshold of the twentieth century.

You can learn now all about the activities of the Cuban-born free-thinker Fernando Tarrida del Mármol (1861-1915), the trade union activist Pedro Vallina Martínez (1879-1970) and Teresa Claramunt Creus (1862-1931), a leading writer in Freedom, the flagship publication of the London anarchists in the 1890s.

If you have not heard from us for a while is mainly because we are busy working on a contracted edited book, but we are still trying to find time to get the word out about the project (ex. only a couple of weeks ago we shared a platform in an event in Canning House entitled ‘Forgotten Histories’) – and we have other profiles and more panels in our online exhibition ‘Exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere’ in the pipeline, so keep tuned!

National flower of Chile found at Tyntesfield

Don’t miss the latest addition to our online exhibition  all about one of the first  – if not the first – artistic depictions of the national flower of Chile, the copihue, discovered by one of our colleagues in the walls of NT Tyntesfield, the country residency established by William ‘Guillermo’ Gibbs (1790-1875) near Bristol, UK.

The finding got also a mention in the August-September National Trust Inspire podcast ( https://soundcloud.com/inspiresw ) where the work of our AHRC-University of Winchester research network project The Hispanic-Anglosphere … in general featured highly. In fact, we served as ‘bait’ for the whole programme… so if you want to avoid the self-proclaimed clichéd presentation (which sadly also reduced the whole of the Hispanic world to Iberian Spain) and other items, we would suggest to just start listening from 40:00 in the track.

Enjoy!

Dissidents’ dead end: help to uncover the story

Check the latest addition to the series of ‘Key Locations’ of our online exhibition where Prof. Manuel Llorca-Jaña traces the troubled origins of the Dissidents Cemetery’ in Valparaiso, Chile. While so doing, he identified a number of individuals of Scottish, Irish and perhaps also English origin about whom there is still much to discover.

If you think that you have information that could help us to reveal their life stories, please drop us an email (hispanicanglosphere@gmail.com)!

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

The information throughout the exhibition has been peer-reviewed and it is based on disclosed and verifiable sources.  There is no prescribed route to the visit, but if you are in a hurry, you can start by clicking  HERE  .When you are done with that panel, simply click on the message ‘the exhibition continues> to go through the rest of the exhibition.
