Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland

The Association of Hispanists of Great Britain & Ireland (AHGBI) is a professional association of academics and researchers working in all areas of Hispanic Studies in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. The Association represents a very diverse discipline, in terms of both geographical coverage (Spain, Portugal, Latin America and other Hispanic and Lusophone parts of the world) and objects of study (language, literature, film, popular culture, visual culture, music, history). We promote research and advanced study in all these areas, and represent the interests of our scholarly community at national and international levels. The Association is a registered UK charity.
