Jessica Barker, Lecturer in Medieval History at the Courtauld Institute of Art, will lead a seminar entitled Inscribing Colonialism in Fifteenth-Century Portugal. The session will consider visible and invisible inscriptions on funerary monuments and their intersections with early Portuguese explorations of the African coast.

This event is part of the programme of the Maius Workshop, an interdisciplinary group that brings together graduate students and early career scholars who share interests in the Hispanic world, encompassing history, art, literature, theatre, music, and more. It aims to create a friendly platform for informal dialogue and collaborative research. Our sessions are open to all, and research in early stages of development is especially welcome. We look forward to seeing you at this event, and please feel free to email us with questions or ideas for future meetings:
