The 2022 conference will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, April 7-9, 2022. See the Conferences page for more information and updates.
The Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies (ASPHS) promotes interest in the scholarly study of Spain and Portugal through History and related disciplines. Membership is open to all interested in the scholarly study of Spain and Portugal.
ASPHS sponsors an annual conference and publishes an annual Newsletter and journal, the Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies.
ASPHS provides small subventions for regional and local meetings or workshops for activities related to our mission to promote the scholarly study of Spain and Portugal through History.
ASPHS awards annual prizes: the A.H. de Oliveira Marques Prize in Portuguese History for best peer-reviewed article or book chapter; the Bishko Prize for best article on medieval Iberian history published by a North American scholar; and, on a three-year rotation, prizes for Best Dissertation, Best Early Career Article, Best First Book.
Now that the ASPHS is an official charitable organization, we encourage donations as well as membership renewal to keep the business of the Association going, including the Bulletin and the prizes. Donations will also support the growth of a graduate student fund to be used for travel to future Conferences. Many thanks for your support!
