The Center for Spain in America (CSA) promotes advanced study and public awareness in the United States of Spanish art and visual culture, also focusing on the history of the Spanish presence and the influence of Spanish art and culture on North America. CSA cooperates with universities, libraries, archives, museums and other educational or cultural institutions fostering academic excellence in the field of Spanish studies in the United States of America and supporting activities such as symposia, lecture series, exhibitions and publications.
The Center for Spain in America is registered as a not-for-profit organisation in the United States and is legally incorporated in New York State since 2009. Its activity is made possible, in part, by CEEH.
A group of prestigious historians and writers address various aspects of Spain’s historical singularity in the European context and the factors that explain Spain’s long presence in America through a series of interviews designed by the diplomat and writer Santiago de Mora–Figueroa, Marquis de Tamarón, as a dialogue based on the pages they have devoted to these themes in their writings.
The project is being run by the Foundation of the US-Spain Council, which was established by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to foster links between Spanish and US society in collaboration with major enterprises and official cultural and academic institutions.
The Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH) and Center for Spain in America (CSA) are honoured to join in this initiative by hosting these conversations on their portal and continuing the series through Metahistoria, a website devoted to providing knowledge of History through digital resources.
