Amiens Hispanic Studies Centre (CEHA)

Research unit - UR 4285


CEHA aims to become a reference point for researchers, Hispanists, and all those who wish to venture into the Spanish-speaking cultural space.

The team works towards an integrated approach to the cultures of the Hispanic world, overcoming the divisions and partitions that too often separate the Iberian and Latin American domains.
Focused on the intercultural communication between dominant and dominated societies, CEHA´s work makes explicit the diversity but also the unity of Hispanic cultures through the points of contact between literature, history and language.
Spearheading studies on minorities since 2009, CEHA has led the European Group ″Minorities in Medieval and Modern Spain (15th - 17th centuries)″, an international team of twenty-five researchers from thirteen differentuniversities which enables CEHA to reach far beyond our borders.
