Last chance: CFP for a panel on "How oral history can impact a local territory and trigger community action," Oral History in Our Challenging Times 2018 OHA Annual Meeting, Montreal

Hello all, with the January 31 deadline pending to submit proposals for the OHA's Annual Meeting in Montreal, Oral History in Our Challenging Times, we are sounding a call for like-minded experiments in oral history for a panel. Our number one inquiry now is how oral history can impact a local territory and trigger community action, and how to share these stories with a broad, listening audience.

Sumário

Parte I

Governar escravos

Query: Help with commons (baldios)

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.
