A Hispanist is a scholar specialising in Hispanic studies, that is Spanish language, literature, linguistics, history, or civilization.

The work carried out by Hispanists includes translations of literature and they may specialise in certain genres, authors or historical periods of the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America.


Publications dealing specifically with Hispanic studies include the Hispania quarterly published by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP).
