Prof. Cañizares-Esguerra has been invited to lecture by multiple universities and research centers around the world

Mon, August 27, 2007

Among the multitude of universities are Emory, Brown, Georgia State, McGill, Harvard, Instituto Universitario Europeo (Florence), Instituto de Estudios Alto Aragoneses (Huesca, Spain), Universidad San Francisco (Quito, Ecuador), University of Western Ontario (London, Canada), National University of Ireland (Galway), Washington University at St Louis, University of Minnesota, University of Southern California, and Cambridge University.

Earlier in March, Cañizares-Esguerra delivered the “2007 World History Lecture” at Georgia State University, which doubled as the key-note address to the Conference “Reflections on Empire.”

This fall, on October 25, Professor Cañizares-Esguerra will deliver the Plenary Address to the Sixteenth-Century Society Conference at the University of Minnesota (UM). The talk entitled “Early Modern Religious Cartographies in the New World” is sponsored by the Theorizing Early Modern Studies Research Collaborative (TEMS), the UM Libraries, and UM’s Center for Early Modern History. TEMS’s Research Collaborative goal is to organize events that bring scholars together whose research focuses on the early modern period.

On December 11, 2007, Cañizares-Esguerra has been invited to the University of Cambridge as part of the Gates Distinguished Lecture Series of the Gates Cambridge Scholars’ Society which “hosts internationally influential figures to discuss issues of global importance.” This year’s theme is on “Building Bridges”.

The External Relations Officer for the Society Amparo E. Flores wrote, “his thought-provoking work in the history of science, colonialism and knowledge—exploring areas where history, science, philosophy, politics, and sociology intersect—is a perfect example of the fascinating and important work being done in interdisciplinary fields.”
