The Pablo de Olavide University and the Escuela de Estudios Hispano-Americanos (CSIC), organise this international conference October the 30 and 31st and 1st of November in Seville (Spain).
Its aim is to put the link between the island of Ireland and the Spanish Monarchy of the early modern period in its Atlantic context. Its seven sessions will focus on the development of trade and slavery networks, the role of Portugal and its empire, the impact of war and political involvement in the struggle for independence in both Portugal and Latin America, social integration in the American societies, women and migration, cultural and scientific circulation, literary and cultural ties and new historiographic perspectives for the study of integrated transnational minorities in the early modern Atlantic.
This conference is aimed at both specialists of Early Modern European and American history, literature and culture, and undergraduate students. The entry will be free subject to availability.
