Therefore, we invite you all to send your published articles and book references in this area, regarding themes and topics related to the study of languages spoken in the Iberian Peninsula, as well as political, historical, cultural and literary approaches in the contemporary era.
A separate page will be created for this purpose  and it will have a brief summary of your activity as researchers in this area, followed by the entries corresponding to your studies (full bibliographic

Hilary Owen is very pleased to inform the members that she has now been elected as the Lusophone Studies representative for UCML (University Council of Modern Languages). Further information is available at: http://www.ucml.ac.uk/ This responsibility was previously part of the combined Hispanic and Lusophone Studies brief, but separate representation of Lusophone Studies was agreed at the UCML AGM in July this year.
