New Book: Wood on Political Theory

Ellen Meiksins Wood, Liberty and Property: A Social History of Western Political Thought from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment (Verso, 2013), has a chapter entitled, “The Spanish Empire.”

CFP: Portugal Inside and Out, Montreal, Oct 16-18, 2013.

The Chaire sur la culture portugaise de l’Université de Montréal, in cooperation with the research group Art i Cultura d’Època Moderna, Generalitat de Catalunya, and the Centre d’Art d’Època Moderna, Universitat de Lleida, will hold a three day conference on Presence(s) of Lusophone Culture in the Early Modern, Modern, and Contemporary Periods . All interested scholars who deal with Lusophone culture are welcome, but we specially encourage PhD candidates, Postdoctoral fellows, Junior faculty members and Independent scholars to attend and present their research.

The theme of the conference is the many ways in which Lusophone culture constituted a specific space which entered into dialogue and interacted with other cultural forms and traditions during a period which began with the Portuguese expansion in the early 15th Century to the present day. Culture is to be interpreted here in the widest way, comprising the Visual arts and Culture, Architecture, Literature, Religion, Theology and Philosophy, mechanisms of transfers, etc. The aim of the exercise is to bring together fresh, innovative and recent research and to reflect, in an interdisciplinary way, on the elaboration and the impact of Lusophone culture in the period under consideration, both in Europe and worlwide.

The conference will be held in Montreal in October 2013. All potential participants are kindly asked to submit a title, abstract and short CV in any of the languages of the conference: French, English, Portuguese or Spanish.

OCTOBER 16-18, 2013

Please submit a short CV (one page) and abstract (max. 300 words) to James Nelson Novoa and Iván Rega Castro, the conference coordinators, by January 31st, 2013, to the following address :

Presentations should be no longer than 20 minutes in length (8-10 double-spaced pages). Accepted papers will be announced by February 28, 2013.
