Query: Help with commons (baldios)

Vera S. Candiani's picture
Dear colleagues:

[please forgive cross-postings]

I am putting together a syllabus as well as a research project on commons and enclosures in the early modern Atlantic -- Spanish, English, French and Portuguese realms on both sides of the ocean, basically -- and would like to solicit suggestions for reading for myself and/or for my students. I am especially in need of readings about commons in Portugal and in its empire. Any language.

Please do deluge your ideas here or to my email if you prefer. I would be so grateful.
