Hispanic Institute

Founded in 1920 as the Instituto de las Españas, the Hispanic Institute for Latin American & Iberian Cultures at Columbia University is a scholarly and cultural center whose aims are to disseminate research on Iberian and Latin American cultures in all their manifestations and to promote new contributions to Latin American and Iberian cultural production in Europe, Latin America, and the United States.  The Hispanic Institute is the official sponsor of all academic and social events undertaken by the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures at Columbia's Casa Hispánica.  Since its inception, the Hispanic Institute has published numerous scholarly monographs as well as literary works and, since 1934, has edited uninterruptedly a distinguished scholarly journal, the Revista Hispánica Moderna.


Revista Hispánica Moderna

Founded in 1934 as Boletín del Instituto de las Españas at Columbia University, Revista Hispánica Moderna has been regarded since as one of the most distinguished international venues for academic research in Spanish. RHM is a semiannual peer-reviewed journal committed to the dissemination of outstanding scholarship on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian literary and cultural studies. It publishes essays and book reviews in Spanish, English, or Portuguese on the full spectrum of Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian cultural production in Europe, Latin America, and the United States, and in all historical periods, from the Middle Ages to the present. Revista Hispánica Moderna is indexed in ISI Web of Knowledge and in SCOPUS.
