1st International Symposium “From the Middle Ages to Modern Times: the Rupture of Space”

Cáceres, 16-17 September 2021

The I International Symposium “From the Middle Ages to Modernity: The Rupture of Space in Europe and the New World” is the result of a joint activity of different centres and groups of national and international places (European and Ibero-American) conceived as a place for common reflection concerning the period in which the foundations of humanist thought and the European model of society and politics were built, as well as the consolidation of human rights built especially from the encounter with the New World.

It is a Forum for the expression of thought that provides a unique opportunity to deepen the knowledge of the common ties of the history and culture of Europe and America.

The topic: “The Rupture of Space”, alludes to the rupture of the geographical and cultural boundaries that the adventure of the circumambulation of the Planet captained by Magellan and completed by Elcano and financed by the Spanish Crown entailed. It is the expression of a mental rupture (philosophical, theological, juridical, artistic, literary…) that was being forged in Humanism and that, in turn, meant, its deepening and projection.

The activities proposed are those expected in a Symposium: plenary presentations, presentation tables with discussion and debate on behalf of the attendees that favour the communication and enrichment of shared knowledge, a special session of doctoral students, and personal meeting spaces. The publication of the work presented is also intended in one or two publications ad hoc in prestigious publishing houses.
