This event is the first Symposium of “RESISTANCE – Rebellion and Resistance in the Iberian Empires, 16th-19th centuries”, a 4 year-long project of scientific international cooperation which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Grant Agreement n. 778076.
The RESISTANCE project intends to study processes of resistance carried out by social and institutional actors that have been historically disadvantaged, discriminated against, and dominated in the context of Iberian Empires. In order to do so, the project adopts a comparative approach between different spaces and chronologies, comprising Europe, America, Asia and Africa, from 1500 to 1850.
The MPIeR is a partner institution of this project, among other European, African, North and South American universities and scientific institutes.
The Symposium I, to be held in the University of Évora, will be a key opportunity for all participating researchers to engage in discussion on the project’s main concept – resistance –, addressing it from multiple historiographical perspectives and contributing, thus, to the building of a common theoretical framework of the project.
