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

Fundación Mercedes Calles – Carlos Ballestero Cáceres, 26-27 de marzo de 2020

It is a Forum for expression of thought that provides a unique opportunity to delve into the knowledge of the common bonds of Europe and America’s history and culture.

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

The proposed activities are those expected in a Symposium: plenary presentations, tables with speeches including the 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.
