La familia Costello y la Diáspora Irlandesa. Genealogía, Globalización y Comercio Atlántico en la Andalucía del Siglo XVIII", by Salvador BDavid Pérez González (University of Málaga). The accesit was awarded to "El Legado de Eavan Boland en Irlanda y más allá: Una aproximación literaria y personal", by Pilar Villar Argáiz (University of Granada).
The CEIT is specialized in the Ibero-American and transatlantic regions, to which Spain is historically linked, and where most of its past and present interrelationships take place. This centre emerges as well from the experience of the Aula María Zambrano de Estudios Transatlánticos (AMZET), which has been carrying out intense training, research and dissemination activities in this field since 2012.
