The Transatlantic Literatures Study Group al the Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard comprises humanities scholars from Spain and across the Unites States working on issues concerning the history and politics of the transatlantic circulation of cultural agents, objects, texts, and ideas.

This volume collects essays on how the representation of and engagement with the senses have affected all media and their psychological, physical, and aesthetic impact on social spaces. Deploying insights from literary criticism, philosphy, film and media studies, they cover objects from steamboats to skateboard, texts from Catallus to V for Vendetta, and they rethink the cultural geography of the Atlantic.
