This panel will explore the ways Spain and Portugal were “imagined” in Britain, the Americas, the Caribbean, or other cultures from which the Iberian peninsula was geographically isolated. Papers may approach the topic from a variety of disciplines, calling on resources such as travel narratives and journals by individuals, accounts in periodicals, or commentary on law, religion, or medicine. The working question is, how was Iberia imagined outside the peninsula?

250-word abstracts by 9/01/10. Electronic submissions preferred to broomej1@wpunj.edu .
