China-Spain Archive is an open-access, digital archive that brings together textual and visual documents on the interactions between Spain and China between the mid-19th century and mid-20th century of interest for the academic community and the general public. The items have been selected for their historical meaningfulness and/or singularity, and catalogued according to international standards. China-Spain Archive also incorporates virtual exhibits and itineraries, interactive images and maps, chronologies and bibliographies, which taken together offer a comprehensive narrative about key events, processes, phenomena and characters on the interactions between China and Spain.

China-Spain Archive is a work in progress created by the research group ALTER at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC). ALTER has received funding from the Spanish Ministry of Science of Innovation (project HAR2012-34823, 2013-2016) and the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation (project "Sino-Spanish Encounters in Taiwanese and European Archives: 1839-1939", 2015-2018).

Research and cataloguing: Xavier Ortells-Nicolau
Coordination: David Martínez-Robles
