ZERMENO PADILLA, Guillermo. About the post national condition in contemporary historiography. Rev. hist. Am. [online]. 2022, n.163, pp.183-203.  Epub 27-Feb-2024. ISSN 2663-371X.

This essay offers a new reading about the historiographical relation between Spain and Latin America. It is about knowing to what extent the cultural relations between them have been modified. This considering the recent reconfigurations of world geopolitics and historiography. In principle, the answer is sought from a nuanced contrast between Hispanism represented by Marcelino Menéndez Pelayo and Rafael Altamira, still dominant around 1970; and its progressive fading due to the political, economic, and cultural crises of the following years, framed by what is known as globalization. The entry into this new scenario has questioned the importance of all kinds of nationalism, localism, nativism, or ethnocentrism dominant in the previous period. In particular, the questions points to the ways of focusing on the relationships between what is one's own and what is foreign, what is inside and what is outside, what is current and what has already happened or could become. To exemplify the latter, reference is made to the historiographical experience carried out around the Iberconceptos network already located in a post-Francoist and post-revolutionary period.

Palabras llave : Hispanic Civilization; Historiography; History theory; Globalization; Iberconceptos.
