JCB Vasco da Gama Lecture

People had a way of getting their voices heard in imperialist political spheres: screaming crowds, riots, and hanging effigies proved effective methods. For the JCB's annual Vasco da Gama Lecture, Jorge Flores (European University Institute) talks about particular instances of this public discourse in Portuguese controlled Goa between 1620 and 1650.

Join us to hear "Talking Statues and Dancing Portraits: Dirty Politics in Early Modern Portuguese India," and stay for the reception.
