Ownership Regimes in the Iberian World, 1500-1850

Call for Papers

September 15, 2021

For a Workshop and Publication, we are calling for contributions that deal with questions of land tenure in any region of the former Portuguese and Spanish empires in Asia, Africa, Europe (incl. Italy and the Netherlands), and the Americas during the early modern period. The contributions may explore the role of families, marriage, kinship, corporations (the Church, cabildos/concelhos, pueblos, etc.), and other kinds of institutions in the regulation of land. Case studies, comparisons, as well as methodological and analytical approaches are particularly welcome. A selection of the papers presented at the workshop will be published as a volume of the Brill series Max Planck Studies in Global Legal History of the Iberian Worlds.


Please send your book chapter proposals in Spanish, English, or Portuguese to Dr. Manuel Bastias Saavedra (bastias@...) until October 31, 2021. A full manuscript will be required before the conference.

For more detailed information, please refer to the complete Call for Papers.
