CFC: Sites of Contest: Cold War Cultural Diplomacy and the Global South

CFC: Portugal and the Gulf

 Dear colleagues,

 I am helping to put together a volume on Europe and the Arab Gulf, in cooperation with the Euro-Gulf Information Centre, Rome. I am looking for a chapter on Portugal and the Gulf in the 16th and 17th centuries. The chapter would be in English, would summarise the current state of knowledge and would make some use of primary sources.

 If anyone is interested, please send me a short abstract (max half a page) along with a brief resume (1 page) to by 1 August 2018.

 Best wishes,
