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.
