Exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere

Through text, images and sound, this exhibition showcases 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. 

It is the work resulting from the first phase of the 18-month 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.

There is no prescribed route to visit this online exhibition. Messages leading backward and forward have been provided at the top and bottom of each panel only to ease the navigation. Links to additional information can be found highlighted within each panel. Sources and suggested readings as well as facilities for printing and sharing electronically are offered at the end of the text.  

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 on any of these panels to start exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere…
