Radical Presentisms — Contemporary Pasts
I would like to announce that the Issue 7 of Iberian Connections is now online. The general theme for this year is Contemporary pasts.
Issue 7.1, conducted by Karina López (Yale), engages the voices of Chad Leahy (Denver), Nicholas Jones (Bucknell), and Rachel Stein(Tulane) to discuss “Radical Presentisms: Putting the Early Modern to Work.” It gathers some of the preliminary materials for the meeting taking place on September 17th 2020 at 5:00pm. You will also receive an invitazoom very soon.
Our guests are preparing materials and ideas for us to discuss and think with them. Nicholas Jones has prepared a reading list, plus a short paper on “Black/Early/Iberia”. Rachel Stein, likewise, has suggested her own reading list, as well as a paper outlining her ideas “Imagining a Collectivist Humanities”. We will be including more materials before, and probably after, September 17th.
