41st annual meeting of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies(ASPHS),
April 15-18, 2010 in Ottawa, Canada
PANEL TITLE: Political Economy and Money in the Eighteenth-Century Iberian World
DESCRIPTION: The production of precious metals in the New World skyrocketed during the eighteenth-century. Many historians attribute this increase to the implementation of Spain's “liberal” Bourbon/Caroline economic reforms. This panel seeks to further investigate and examine political economy and the role(s),
conception(s), and flow(s) of money in the eighteenth-century Iberian Peninsula and transatlantic world in relation to the reforms.
Preference will be given to proposals that address the Iberian liberal legacy,
including aspects of European or transatlantic Enlightenment thought in relation to
precious metals and money.
Possible topics might include (but are not limited to):
-- Economic thought and silver/gold/money in the Iberian Peninsula and transatlantic world.
-- Political Economy
-- Representations of money in Iberian/transatlantic arts and literature.
-- Iberian/transatlantic/European monetary flows.
-- Mining and production of silver and gold.
-- Money in Bourbon/Caroline Spain.
-- Money in Spanish ‘decadence’ and ‘restoration.’
-- Iberian ideas and conceptions of money.
-- Economic Societies and money.
-- New economic criticism in eighteenth-century Iberian arts and literature.
