Information and Loyalty Networks: Local Mediators in the Global Construction of Empires (16th century)

Posted By Ida Mauro, Thursday, July 9, 2020
Updated: Thursday, July 9, 2020

Session organized by Ida Mauro and Diego Sola, University of Barcelona.

Research group REDIF. Redes de información y fidelidad: los mediadores territoriales en la construcción global de la Monarquía de España (1500-1700).

The aim of this session is to attract papers to reflect on complex political systems (CPS) in the Early Modern Age, which were dominated by the convergence of multiple interests, and their need to gather information about their subjects from different sources. As a rule, local actors played an essential role in achieving the system’s political aims of integration and governance. The global expansion of the Spanish and Portuguese monarchies and of the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century, in which different institutions, social and economic practices, and political and religious traditions converged, demanded communication and information mechanisms to convey the necessary knowledge about both territories and people.

These local, political or religious, ‘agents’ were a sort of “transmission belt” between the court and its European, American, African and Asian territories; they defended local interests while delivering information about distant political and cultural contexts. They complemented the action of other political actors (such as viceroys, governors and superior councils) and provided a more direct means of communication between the subjects and the king. These local actors include a wide array of intellectuals, such as the humanist Mariangelo Accursio or the writer Giovan Battista Pino, who defended their cities’ interests at Charles V’s court; religious reformers, such as Diego de Salazar and José de Acosta, who connected distant territories in Asia, America and Europe with their ecclesiastical work during the reign of Philip II; or the missionaries Andrés de Urdaneta and Martín de Loyola, who connected peoples and experiences both within and outside the empire’s borders, also in the 16th century.

We welcome papers on local agents, both individuals and groups (secular or religious), which were active within the same territory, their role, networks, religious identity, production of texts and accounts. The aim of this session is to re-create the human and information-related dimension of a universe of local agents that constantly moved back and forth between their territories and decision-making centres.

Their essential role provides a new insight into Early Modern governance, which was based on the strategic action of territorial mediators, as well as to present Early Modern empires as a laboratory of knowledge in which the operation of territorial mediators played an essential role in the governance of different contexts and interests.

Please send proposals, including a 150-word abstract with your paper title, full name, current affiliation, and a short CV (up to 5 pages) by July 31th, 2020 to Dr. Ida Mauro idamauro@ub.edu and Dr. Diego Sola diegosola@ub.edu

Call for Papers: “Global Conversion: Cultures, Religions, and Encounters”

Posted By Frank Lacopo, Wednesday, June 24, 2020

The early modern period is characterized by increasing human movement, exchange of cultural knowledge, and resulting encounters between previously isolated epistemologies, belief systems, and language families. As a result of reform, early modern communities identified new forms of difference and magnified existing ones, creating yet more opportunities for encounter with the “other.” Rather than simply accept and tolerate cultural, religious, and intellectual difference, early moderns more often sought to convert persons and ideas as they crossed lines of encounter. New definitions of confession, race, and humanity necessitated institutions, ideologies, and rituals to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and bodies across hardened lines that formed at loci of encounter. Knowledge, practices, and bodies had to be converted into acceptable and comprehensible forms as they crossed marked boundaries across the early modern world.

This Call for Papers seeks scholarly presentations on any aspect of intergroup encounter and the processes, rituals, and spaces of conversion that they necessitated in the early modern world. Paper topics might include but are not limited to:

  • Ideologies and rhetorics surrounding religious conversion
  • The intersection of religious conversion and subject-making
  • Loci of conversion (conversion houses, missions, etc.)
  • The conversion/translation of non-European knowledge into forms comprehensible to Europeans, and vice versa
  • The place of religious conversion and the conversion of persons to new political loyalty in diplomacy
  • The intersection of migration, itineracy, and conversion
  • The conversion of bodies and spaces for new uses and functions as a result of reform or colonialism
  • The limits of conversion and translation for achieving cross-cultural legibility and political loyalty
  • Persons and knowledge that resisted conversion and the question of “toleration”

Please send a short CV (limit to one page), a presentation title, and a 150-word abstract to the session organizer Frank Lacopo (fxl60@psu.edu OR frank.lacopo@psu.edu). In addition, please detail any A/V requirements that you expect to have.

All presenters must register for the 67th Annual Renaissance Society of America Meeting, be committed to attending the conference in Dublin, and make their own travel arrangements.

For more information about the RSA Annual Meeting, please see the conference website: https://www.rsa.org/page/RSADublin2021

The deadline for the submission of materials for this panel is August 10, 2020, to allow ample time for final panel submission on August 15.

My areas of research/interest include: Renaissance Italy, Habsburg Austria, English Reformation, Tudor England, The Jesuits, Catholic Reformation, Early Modern Europe. My master's thesis was on the roots of The English Reformation from the reigns of William I to Henry VIII. I'm happy to do research or help with a proposal in these areas. Thank you!
