Online Discussion: Portuguese Converso Paths Between Italy and Brazil (3/15/22)


Please join The Program in Global Early Modern Studies (GEMS) on March 15, 5:00pm for a discussion with Professor James Nelson Novoa (University of Ottawa).
Prof. Novoa will introduce interconnected stories or histories which brought together the Italian world and early colonial Brazil. Drawing upon archival research, this talk will discuss examples of how members of the Portuguese converso diaspora crisscrossed the Mediterranean and Atlantic worlds creating family ties and commercial networks, carrying products and information between Brazil and the Italian peninsula.
