Este libro ofrece la primera revision en forma de volumen monografico de las transferencias culturales de Gran Bretana a Espana en el siglo XVIII, centrandose en particular en el genero mas novedoso del setecientos, la podica. Para ello, explora el fenomeno hasta ahora difuso de la anglomania - moda de las ideas, influencias y estilos ingleses que domino la Europa del setecientos - y su fenomeno opuesto, la anglofobia, en tres tipos de prensa bien diferenciados, todo ello en conjuncion con la propia coyuntura nacional y el programa de reformas borbonico. Ademas, esta obra enfatiza la labor de estos periodistas y periodicos, asi como sus conexiones con el poder, a la vez que los situa como agentes fundamentales de esa red europea de intercambios materiales e intelectuales que sustento la Republica de las Letras. Con todo ello, este volumen contribuye a la serie de debates dedicados a la reevaluacion de la Ilustracion espanola que buscan situarla en el mapa de las Luces Europeas de entonces y de ahora. LETICIA VILLAMEDIANA GONZALEZ es Profesora Titular en el Departamento de Modern Languages and Cultures, University of Warwick. This book constitutes the first monographic study of the cultural transfers from Great Britain to Spain through 18th-Century periodical press, one of the most innovative genres of the period. It explores the notion of anglomania - the craze for all things English which spread throughout all Europe - and its reactive phenomenon, anglophobia, offering a contextualised analysis of the transmission, reception and adaptation of British Enlightened ideas and reforms in three different types of Spanish periodicals. In so doing, this volume brings to the fore the work of some understudied writers and journalists and situates these important periodicals and their connections to power as a key part of a wider European context of material and intellectual exchanges that sustained the Republic of Letters. This in turn, contributes to recent scholarship arguing for a central place of Spain in the intellectual map of the Enlightenment. LETICIA VILLAMEDIANA GONZALEZ is a Senior Teaching Fellow in Hispanic Studies at the University of Warwick.
