2020 Summer Lecture Series
The Early Modern Atlantic World
Between the fifteenth and the eighteenth centuries, economic, cultural, and social exchanges between continents resulted in sometimes radical, sometimes subtle, and often protracted transformations of the early modern Atlantic World. The 2020 summer lectures will explore the effects of “Atlanticization” on the territories of the Iberian Empires in the Americas and on social and cultural categories such as religion, race, ethnicity, and shared space.
Welcome and introduction of speakers: Professor Ute Lotz-Heumann, Director, DLMRS
Thematic introduction: Professor David Graizbord, Associate Director, Arizona Center for Judaic Studies
Free and open to the public
The 2020 summer lectures will be offered virtually on Zoom. Please register for the lecture by clicking on the link below. You will automatically receive the Zoom information for the lecture when you register.
