In the past few years, historians of the Atlantic World have increasingly turned their interest toward North and South Atlantic relations and connections between Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Pacific Worlds. Atlantic History has turned global – to some extent at least.

The fifth Summer Academy is hosted by Prof Bartolomé Yun Casalilla of the Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Seville, Spain, PI of the Project “American Globalization” (HAR2014-53797-P). Born in Lima in 1740, Pablo de Olavide is a prominent figure of what we might want to dub the Atlantic Enlightenment.

As well as providing the selected students with an opportunity to present papers and engage in discussion with tutors and their fellow students on their research, the Summer Academy will also host keynote speakers who will address broad themes appertaining to Atlantic History.
