Women in the IBERO-AMERICAN ATLANTIC (1500-1800)

The Program in the Carolina Low country and Atlantic World (CLAW) at the College of Charleston calls for papers on Women in the Iberian and Latin American Atlantic World.
Charleston, South Carolina
Feb. 18 to 20, 2010
This interdisciplinary conference welcomes papers on Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American history, literature, cultural production, etc. We hope to examine questions such as: Who were the women that traveled from the Iberian Peninsula to the New World or vice-versa? What ideasdid they bring with them? What influence did women who did not physically travel have on the Atlantic world? What role did women playin creating an Atlantic network? What can women's experience in the Atlantic World tell us about the Atlantic cultural production,literary exchanges, economy, race relations, religion, etc., between
1500 and 1800?
