Bartolomé de Las Casas: Transatlantic Reformer?


The Third International Conference on Bartolomé de las Casas (June 22–June 24, 2022) in Providence, Rhode Island, 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.

Proposals (in English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish) of 250 to 500 words in length and a short bio of 250 words are due by February 1st, 2022: sent to the attention of the organizers at LasCasasConference2022@gmail.com.
