The Ibero-American Studies Collection at UW-Madison’s Memorial Library encompass the history, cultures, and affairs of the American territories conquered by the Spanish and Portuguese between the 15th and 18th centuries. It also focuses on all the subsequently independent Spanish-speaking republics, Brazil, and all the Caribbean, taking into consideration each region’s preexisting indigenous cultures. By the same token, Iberian studies encompass the same study areas for Spain and Portugal from the Early Middle Ages to the present.
This collection includes materials from or about Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian countries in the areas of: literature, linguistics, history, sociology, anthropology, economy, political sciences, religion, cultural studies, women’s studies, and film studies.
