Breve fundamentación del simposio: The celebration of what seem to be significant centenaries (whether fifth, second, or even the in-between seisquicentenarios etc.) tends to bring out the worst - and occasionally the best - in historical writing. The bicentenary of the outbreak in 1810 of the Revolutions for Independence in most of the capital cities of Spanish (but not in Mexico and Lima, the conservative capitals of the old viceroyalties of New Spain and Peru) has already generated scholarly and political debate, together with many publications, some of which might turn out to be of historiographical significance. Despite a certain reticence about appearing to follow a sometimes superficial trend, the celebration in 2012 of the ICA does seem to offer an opportunity for serious scholars to reflect upon the nature of the celebrations so far, and, more significantly, to re-consider and re-evaluate the causes, the course, the results - both immediate and longer-term - and the significance of the collapse of Iberian imperialism throughout the American mainland in the period 1810-1825. Papers may be given in any of the official languages of the ICA, with a practical prefence for English, Spanish or Portuguese.

Palabras claves: Fernando VII, España, Independencia, Perú, México.
