Free Lecture on The Global Spanish Empire with Christine D. Beaule and John G. Douglass

August 15, 2020 at 11:00 A.M., MST

Join Christine D. Beaule and John G. Douglass for a virtual talk on their new volume, The Global Spanish Empire.

In the fall of 2018, an Amerind Foundation seminar that was focused on Spanish colonialism resulted in our recent book The Global Spanish Empire: Five Hundred Years of Place Making and Pluralism, which drew together an international group of amazing scholars. Through their case studies, the project illuminated the role of place making in colonial societies and the pluralistic nature of these diverse groups of people brought together. This free zoom talk will highlight not only the key takeaways from the group study, but also offer important insight into the role of Iberian colonialism across the globe from the 1300s through the 1800s.

Christine D. Beaule is an associate professor in the Department of Languages and Literatures of Europe and the Americas, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. Her work focuses on Spanish colonialism in both the Philippines and the central highland Andes.

John G. Douglass, vice president of research and standards at Statistical Research, Inc., and adjunct professor in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona. His research has focused on Indigenous-Colonial interaction, religious performance, household archaeology, and community creation in the American Southwest, California, and Mesoamerica.
