International Conference Beyond King Manuel I. The Portuguese Empire in a Changing World, c. 1450-1550. Launch Conference by Prof. Sanjay Subrahmanyam

Five hundred years after the death of King Manuel I of Portugal, the Centre for the History of Society and Culture of the University of Coimbra, promotes an international conference with the purpose of revisiting the traditional notion of Portugal’s projection into the world from a geographically and culturally decentered perspective. Aiming to reassess and recontextualize the figure of the monarch, early modern Portugal, and the domains and peoples that shaped the Portuguese empire, this conference will build on historiographical developments of recent decades.
