10am – 6pm
Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK
In an opportunity to further elaborate ideas explored in their current exhibition, Spain and the Hispanic World – a gathering of over 150 objects on loan from the Hispanic Society Museum and Library spanning time periods and continents – the Royal Academy of Arts invites the public to a one-day symposium: Spain and the Hispanic World Symposium: cross-cultural exchanges.
Based on an interdisciplinary approach, the Symposium offers the opportunity to engage in discussions in which global exchange, empire and colonialism, movement (of objects, peoples, ideas), and cross-confessional and -cultural issues take center stage. From Al-Andalus to Christian Iberia to colonial Latin America, the symposium looks beyond just the exportation of Spanish Culture to consider as well the influences and exchanges simultaneously brought back into Iberia.
