XI° JORNADAS INTERESCUELAS/ DEPARTAMENTOS DE HISTORIA
Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, 19 al 22 de Septiembre de 2007
Panel Nº 58:
Revolutions and Independences in Atlantic Perspective: Actors and Dynamics.
Is it possible to speak of an Atlantic space during times of independence and revolutions?
The object of this panel is to debate on Atlantic revolutions and the crisis of the link between two of the modern empires, English and Spanish, and their transoceanic extensions. The aim is to raise the question about the limits and possibilities of the Atlantic scale when studying these related processes.
We call for papers that reflect on the particular elements of revolutionary experience and highlight the local dimensions of Atlantic independence dynamics, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. When not understood as a unifying space, the Atlantic reveals its contradictions and complexities. Proposals that explore the historical multiplicity of subjectivities and perspectives within the Atlantic World are welcome. In particular, those that revert the original understanding of unidirectional movements of exchanges between and within these empires, conveying an image of the centrality of negotiation for the multiple cultural and political positions that configured this “space.”
