Yuste Foundation Publishes the Doctoral Thesis that Won the 1st Research Prize to Ibero-American Doctoral Theses
The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation has just published the doctoral thesis “Cirurgiões, práticas e saberes cirúrgicos na América portuguesa no século XVIII”, by Brazilian Monique Palma. This is the winning thesis of the Research Prize to Ibero-American Doctoral Theses convened by the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation whose prize was awarded in the framework of the I International Congress “Relations between Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean: A Meeting Space”, which was held between 18 and 20 March 2021 at the Royal Monastery of Santa María de Guadalupe.(18/01/2022)
This is the fourth publication of the Foundation’s book collection “Tesis Doctorales”, the previous one was: “Filosofía de la historia de América: los cronistas de Indias en el pensamiento español” by Natalia K. Denisova.
This research, which focuses on the eighteenth century, must be considered valid in the current world health situation, as it exposes the flows of knowledge and understanding that have existed for centuries between Europe and Ibero-America in a comprehensive way, as the thesis itself states as it claims that “it involves a study of the processes of the circulation of people and knowledge in a world that tends towards globalisation”.
