Abstract

Never before have all twenty-nine illustrated copies of the Beatus Commentaries on the Apocalypse been brought together for comparative analysis in a single volume. John Williams, renowned expert on the Commentaries, offers here his updated considerations on the material, revising and summing up a lifetime of study on these strikingly illuminated manuscripts. Dating from the early to central Middle Ages, the Spanish phenomenon of the Commentary on the Apocalypse responded to differing monastic needs within the shifting context of the Middle Ages. The volume also presents an in-depth study of the recently discovered Geneva Beatus. One of only three Commentaries written outside the Iberian Peninsula, this manuscript closely follows a Spanish model but was written in a Beneventan script and painted in a style dramatically different from the original.

Abstract

The iberisms are connected to a central issue in political and historical reflection in European 19th and 20th centuries: how can a nation be defined? Which viability and future possibilities could it have? Is it pertinent to interpret them as expressions of a nationalism that gave rise to the unification of Italy and Germany? The concepts of Iberism and Hispanism (pan-hispanism, hispano-Americanism, ibero-Americanism, etc.) acquired diverse meanings depending on the historical conjunctures. They generated expectations of future, but also they brought about resistances. They were not able to mobilize popular groups in Portugal, and also in Spain, and never succeeded in organizing political movements with consistent action programs. However, they raised wide public reactions and encouraged the political communication between Portuguese and Spanish, feeding a live European transnational debate. Based in a broad research, we develop an integrated approach that takes into account the study of the actors involved and reviews the place of iberisms in political and historical peninsular cultures in a chronology that goes from the period of French occupation to the establishment of dictatorships in the 30’s..

Abstract

This volume reconstructs with great detail the history and the rapid development of the prestigious research centre, Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad, founded in the late 1980s at Charles III University of Madrid and briefly risen to a truly great international research lab on University and Higher Education History in Spain and in South-American countries. On the basis of a wide range of archival and print sources, the author puts his focus on the most significant moments of the Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad, from its laborious creation in 1997 to the attempt to convert it into a LOU University Institute for Research and its incorporation into the Instituto Figuerola de Historia y Ciencias Sociales in 2009, and he introduces the countless and considerable scientific research activities promoted over the years, without leaving out that seriousness and that methodological rigour which have punctually characterized all the works produced and the initiatives made.

Abstract

Coincidiendo con el ochenta aniversario del comienzo de la Guerra Civil Española, la publicación La memoria transgeneracional se plantea observar la transmisión transgeneracional, en España, de la memoria del conflicto de 1936–1939, a través de la mirada proporcionada por la literatura de tercera generación. Su primera sección se centra alrededor de un acercamiento interdisciplinar a la «memoria» como objeto de estudio, y de la contextualización de la memoria traumatizada en España a partir del año 1939. Por medio de la observación de un corpus de novelas recién publicadas, el objetivo principal de la investigación es la formulación de pautas interpretativas que ayuden a parcelar la rápida evolución del panorama literario de la España actual en lo que se refiere a la representación del pasado conflictivo de la nación.

Abstract

Disabled Bodies in Early Modern Spanish Literature examines the concepts and role of women in selected Spanish discourses and literary texts from the late fifteenth to seventeenth centuries from the perspective of feminist disability theories. It explores a wide range of Spanish medical, regulatory and moral discourses, illustrating how such texts inherit, reproduce and propagate an amalgam of Western traditional concepts of female embodiment. It goes on to examine concrete representations of deviant female characters, focusing on the figures of syphilitic prostitutes and physically decayed aged women in literary texts such as Celestina, Lozana andaluza and selected works by Cervantes and Quevedo. Finally, an analysis of the personal testimony of Teresa de Avila, a nun suffering neurological disorders, complements the discussion of early modern women’s disability.

Abstract

Many universities worldwide now require established and novice scholars, as well as PhD students, to publish in English in international journals. This growing trend gives rise to multiple interrelated questions, which this volume seeks to address through the perspectives of a group of researchers and practitioners who met in Coimbra, Portugal in 2015 for the PRISEAL and MET conferences. The volume offers truly global coverage, with chapters focusing on vastly different geo-social areas, and disciplines from the humanities to the hard sciences. It will be of interest to applied linguists, particularly those working in the area of English for Research Publication Purposes, and to language professionals working in research writing support, research supervision and academic publishing, as well as to journal editors and managers.
