The analysis of the historical links between Spain and North America is of vital importance to the ever-growing area of transatlantic studies. This book brings together fourteen articles with interdisciplinary approaches organized around the idea of legal, political, literary, linguistic, artistic, and pedagogical transatlantic gazes. These articles have sprung from the III International Conference on the Historical Links between Spain and North America, organized by the Instituto Franklin of the Universidad de Alcalá, the City College of New York Division of Interdisciplinary Studies (CUNY), and the Instituto Cervantes (April 26th to 28th, 2017, Alcalá de Henares).
