|12 Dec 2007 - 14 Dec 2007||All day||CRASSH & Trinity College, Cambridge|
The workshop seeks to broaden and reinvigorate the debate about the connections between enlightenment thought and government reform in Southern Europe and its overseas empires. The participants, drawn from universities in Britain, Latin America, Continental Europe, and North America will compare and contrast the varieties of enlightened reform in Italy, Portugal, France, Spain, Brazil, and Spanish America in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Emphasis will be placed on the exchanges of ideas about reform across states and empires, and between the Old World and the New.
