The Hispanic Anglosphere Project

An AHRC-funded international research network in partnership with the National Trust tracing modern transnational networks and global communities (late 18th to early 20th centuries).

About the project

'The Hispanic-Anglosphere: transnational networks, global communities (late 18th-20th centuries)’ is an international research network funded by the AHRC and the University of Winchester in partnership with National Trust-Tyntesfield (image).

Challenging existing assumptions of enmity and isolation, the project aims to develop a new critical conceptual framework – the ‘Hispanic-Anglosphere’ – to study the individuals, networks and communities that made the British Isles into a crucial hub for the global Hispanic world, and a bridge between Spanish Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas.

The project focusses on the late 18th to early 20th centuries, a period marked by natural disasters, the dislocation of global polities, nation-state building and the rise of nationalism.

The initiative is led by Dr Graciela Iglesias Rogers, Senior Lecturer in Modern European and Global Hispanic History.
