BEIRED, José Luis Bendicho. Intellectuals and press: the configuration of an Hispanic-American network in the Atlantic space. História [online]. 2009, vol.28, n.2, pp. 821-836. ISSN 1980-4369. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-90742009000200029.
This article deals with the development of an intellectual network of international dimension that joined Latin America and Iberian Peninsula, from mid-nineteenth century. We aimed to analyze the role of intellectuals and the media in the formation of this network and discuss their ideas and political projects, in the light of the political and cultural debate. We consider that the action of intellectuals and the press contributed to the setting of a singular espace of circulation of ideas and the formation of Ibero-American public opinion.
