The Iberian Studies Group is an interdisciplinary community of Northern Illinois University faculty and students interested in the history, culture, and politics of Iberian societies from Antiquity to the Modern Era. The Group also explores cross-cultural and transnational approaches to Iberian societies, which includes the impact of Iberia on other regions (such as Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries) as well as the relationship between other cultures and regions and the Iberian Peninsula. The Iberian Studies Group focuses on ‘big questions’ that transcend any particular period or individual discipline and analyze Iberian societies from multiple perspectives.
