"Movement, gathering and connections. Hispanic World´s Enlightenment in the Eighteenth Century"


Supervisor: Prof. Stefan Rinke (Freie Universität Berlin)

This project examines from a global perspective the construction of contacts and networks within which characteristic ideas of Enlightenment circulated in certain 19th century Spanish Crown cities. Taking an equilibrium between reformatory European forces and local forms into account, spreads of discussion- and reading groups will be analysed, thereby considering travelers and specific personalities who adopted new images and attitudes of reality through lecture, perception and writing. Besides reproducing mechanisms of communication such as itineraries, correspondences and newspapers, this investigation determines levels of connection not only between groups pursuing similar intellectual objectives but also between those in different geographic locations.
