Early Modern Studies Workshop with Ricardo Padrón

Please join us at the Early Modern Workshop on Friday, September 25, 12-1:30pm, for a presentation by Ricardo Padrón

Ricardo will be speaking about his new book, The Indies of the Setting Sun: How Early Modern Spain Mapped the Far East as the Transpacific West (University of Chicago Press, 2020), which challenges prevailing narratives about the so-called “invention of America” by exploring the transpacific commitments of the Spanish Indies as a geopolitical concept.

Our events are free and open to the public. Please register below on Zoom:
