Research Guide for Iberian Literatures

Research Guide for Spanish, Portuguese, and Other Iberian Literatures

This new Research Guide for Spanish, Portuguese, and Other Iberian Literatures is a starting point for research on the literatures of the Iberian Peninsula located in the UC Berkeley Library. For additional resources in all formats including e-books, please explore related LCSH subject headings in OskiCat or browse the shelves near the relevant call numbers supplied in this bibliography.

The guide is lengthy (23 pages) but is sub-divided as follows: Guides and Literary Histories, Bio-Bibliographical and Regional Resources, Dictionaries, Literary Theory and Criticism, Poetry, Theater, Guides by Literary Period: Medieval and Early Renaissance, Early Modern and Baroque, Cervantes Studies, Enlightenment and Romanticism, and Modern and Contemporary. Bookmarks on the left (viewable in most web browsers) allow one to skip through the PDF file rather easily in locating a specific section.

While links to some electronic resources are provided, the Spanish and Portuguese subject grouping in the Library’s Electronic Resources Finder contains the most current digital resources available and should be consulted when using this guide to what are, for the most part, printed books.

Roundtable: Fallout Films: Bruce Conner’s Atomic Sublime, 1958 – 1976

November 21st
Lewis Latimer Room, Faculty Club
12:00 PM

Led by Johanna Gosse, a Ph.D. Candidate in History of Art, Bryn Mawr College

San Francisco-based artist Bruce Conner made his first short film, A MOVIE, in 1958 at the height of the national anxiety about the atomic threat. Over the following two decades, Conner’s film-making practice was framed by the cultural and social fallout of the Cold War. Drawing on his papers at Bancroft, this talk will examine the films Conner produced during this period ? including masterful montages of “found footage,” psychedelic voyages into expanded consciousness, and intimate portraits of friends and collaborators. It will also analyze major influences on his distinctive apocalyptic vision of postwar America.
