The Department of Spanish and Portuguese is committed to encouraging a deep and complex understanding of the heterogeneous cultures we research and teach, from their earliest inceptions on the Iberian Peninsula and in the Americas, to their most current linguistic and cultural manifestations in Europe, Africa, and the Americas.  The value of this knowledge cannot be underestimated, particularly in light of phenomena ranging from the economic boom in Brazil, to the profound political and social changes in Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Spain, Guatemala, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and Mexico, to the rapidly growing percentage of U.S. citizens of Portuguese or Hispanic heritage in the United States, and especially in Texas.
