We undertake and support publishing projects that deal with historical and current relations between Spain and the United States.
Over the past 15 years, the Fundación Consejo España – EE.UU. has been actively engaged in publishing activities with the main goal of offering greater depth of knowledge on the role played by Spain in the history of the United States and contributing, at the same time, to its dissemination in our two countries.
Here the Fundación has worked on two fronts. It has provided support for the publication, translation and dissemination of works by publishers and authors of recognized prestige, promoting quite varied work –from clearly academic/research proposals to novels and biographies, many in bilingual editions– that rescue, discuss or promote historical figures and facts on which there is scant knowledge in both Spain and in the United States.
On the other hand, the Fundación has published its own works, closely related to its cultural projects, such as the catalogues of the exhibitions ‘Designing America’ and ‘Invisible Immigrants. Spaniards in the US (1868 -1945)’. Other initiatives are linked to relevant celebrations, such as the Tricentennial of the Founding of San Antonio, Texas (1718-2018) and the Birth of Junípero Serra (1713-2013).
Current events, culture, the economy and politics in the U.S. are, most certainly, matters of interest to the Fundación, and since 2013 it has therefore been supporting and actively contributing to the review of the Instituto Franklin-UAH, Tribuna Norteamericana, a quarterly publication devoting each issue to a specific topic, with articles by prominent figures in the areas of diplomacy, business, media and academia. Tribuna Norteamericana is distributed in both digital and print form, making it a unique publication in Spain in its field.
