RESISTANCE. Rebellion and Resistance in the Iberian Empires, 16th-19th centuries.

Our goals

  • RESISTANCE intends to study resistance of subordinated social groups in Iberian empires of the past (1500-1850) from a “bottom-up” perspective.

  • RESISTANCE pursues a comparative approach between different spaces, comprising Europe, America, Asia and Africa.

  • RESISTANCE will analyse both phenomena of active and passive resistance, as well as its real transforming impacts.

  • RESISTANCE aims to transfer knowledge achieved by its team to today’s society, in order to understand present Iberian and former colonies’ societies and their political, social, cultural and economic challenges.
