650th Anniversary of the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance – Interdisciplinary Conference: Call for papers/panels

650th Anniversary of the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance – Interdisciplinary Conference: Call for papers/panels

The legal foundations of the Anglo-Portuguese alliance are found in three treaties dating from the fourteenth century: the Treaty of Tagilde (10 July 1372), the Treaty of London (16 July 1376), and the Treaty of Windsor (9 May 1386).

Today, in a context shaped by Brexit, the Interdisciplinary Conference “The Anglo-Portuguese Alliance: Tacking Stock of the Past and Envisioning the Future” marks the 650th anniversary of the Treaty of Tagilde with a creative space for dialogue and exchange of knowledge among researchers from different areas of knowledge. The conference aims to bring about a deeper understanding of the Anglo-Portuguese alliance, its past and present, and reflect on possible future reverberations.
