CFP: Bartolomé de Las Casas: Transatlantic Reformer?
Third International Conference on Bartolomé de las Casas, June 22-24, 2022.
In Charles Taylor’s provocative study, A Secular Age, he identifies Reform as a broad conviction “felt with increasing power during the Middle Ages and early modern period, that not just an élite, but as far as possible all the faithful live up to the demands of the Gospel” (104). Drawing on this expansive concept, the theme of the Third International Conference on Bartolomé de las Casas (June 22–June 24, 2022) will center on the question of Las Casas’s role as a transatlantic reformer. Papers are welcome that put Las Casas in conversation with broader trends in sixteenth-century reformations, Christian humanism and secularization as well as currents in theology, literature, philosophy, anthropology, and law. Organizers also welcome contributions that draw on approaches that address Las Casas’s mark on social discipline and print culture.
