Abstract

Si el cambio de enfoque de regiones continentales a flujos oceánicos procuró rescatar los estudios de área de su obsolescencia geopolítica, y si el desplazamiento de las ciencias sociales duras, neopositivistas y desarrollistas por un multiculturalismo interdisciplinario y poscolonial respondió al giro cultural posmoderno, la irrupción de los estudios transatlánticos hispánicos podría entenderse como una pieza más en la política cultural panhispanista promovida por el Estado español. Imbricada a los intereses económicos del capitalismo español y las corporaciones transnacionales, esta política, que procura restablecer la hegemonía moral y cultural de la antigua metrópolis sobre el mundo de habla hispana, responde a una estrategia económica y geopolítica global.

If the geographical displacement from continental regions to oceanic ranges was meant to salvage area studies from their geopolitical obsolescence, and the epistemological displacement from hardcore, neo-positivistic and developmentalist social sciences to relativistic, postmodern and postcolonial multiculturalism was a response to the economically driven and globally experienced cultural turn, the emergence of Hispanic Transatlantic studies can be understood as part of the pan-Hispanist cultural policy promoted by the Spanish State. Confusedly entangled with the overlapping interests of Spanish capitalism and transnational corporations, this global geopolitical strategy aims at restoring the metropolitan cultural and moral hegemony over the Hispanic world.
