In its third year of existence, Pleibéricos, an online platform focused on launching and promoting new books in the field of Iberian ṣtudies, held an event at the headquarters of the Cervantes Institute in Madrid on 24 October 2022. The aim of this first in-person meeting was to start conversations with other initiatives in the field that, like Pleibéricos, were founded during the COVID-19 pandemic or that had to move their operations online or adopt a hybrid format during that time. The founders and coordinators of the following six platforms talked about their projects: the online research seminar series Polibéricos, Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival (ESFF – to represent hybrid formats in the creative sector), the Spanish-language podcast New Books Network and the conferences Conversations on Iberian Studies: Challenges and Opportunities (CISCO) and Association for Contemporary Iberian Studies (ACIS). They placed special emphasis on the advantages and challenges of the online and hybrid formats and how to incorporate these new experiences, technologies and skills into a post-pandemic context. The event concluded with a roundtable discussion and some concluding remarks by a guest respondent. This meeting was made possible with the support of a Hispanex grant awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sport.
