This study aims to cover the political transformations in Spain between 1808 and 1814, which means the kidnapping of the King Fernando VII by Napoleon Bonaparte, the advance of a revolutionary constitutional process and also the dissolution of the Atlantic Empire. The subject of this project is how a determined group of Spanish liberals tried to assemble a new political order with the keeping of the empire.Between 1808 and 1814, a new public sphere was essential for the Spanish Revolution. This sphere was defined by intense public discussions and by the participation of new subjects that had been excluded of the power in the Ancien Régime. The press was one of the favorites ways to intervene in the public sphere, widely used by the liberals.Therefore, our project aims to study how the liberal group gathered around the poet Manuel Quintana and the newspaper Semanario Patriótico dealt the American question, not only while they've been together, but also after the dissolution of the group, what resulted in many others newspapers, all them objects of this study.
