So it’s been almost ten years since I’ve started this blog, and I’m about to make a change: removing the page for “Historians of Early Modern Spain.” It’s outlived its usefulness, since anyone can be easily googled these days, even our colleagues overseas, and it’s the most time-consuming part of maintaining this site (indeed I’ve not kept it up to date for some time). I will still provide links to the authors of books/articles/etc that I post about, but no longer attempt to maintain an exhaustive list.

CONNECTED HISTORIES IN THE EARLY MODERN WORLD
This series contributes to our growing understanding of the connectedness of the world during a period in history when an unprecedented number of people—Europeans, Africans, Asians—made transoceanic or other long distance journeys. It explores topics that highlight the cultural impact of the movement of people, animals, and objects at a global scale. The series editors welcome proposals for monographs and collections of essays in English from literary critics, art historians, and cultural historians that address the changes and cross-fertilizations of cultural practices of specific societies. General topics may concern, among other possibilities: cultural confluences, objects in motion, appropriations of material cultures, cross-cultural exoticization, transcultural identities, religious practices, translations and mistranslations, cultural impacts of trade, discourses of dislocation, globalism in literary/visual arts, and cultural histories of lesser studied regions (such as the Philippines, Macau, African societies).
Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, and Asia
