Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures

A guide to resources on Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures at Penn State

Spanish and Portuguese at Penn State University

The Spanish Program at Penn State has a long tradition of advancing diverse and interdisciplinary studies that intersect with broader transnational and transatlantic discourses. The Literature program promotes dialogues with other fields and disciplines through Afro-Hispanic Studies, U.S. Latino Studies, Early Modern/Modern Studies, Comparative Literature, Literary Theory, Inter-Art, Film, and Cultural Studies.

The Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese is supported by the George and Sherry Middlemas Arts and Humanities Library located on second and third floors of Pattee Library.
