Cultural transfers and government practices in the shaping of the Iberian monarchies of the Early Modern period (1580-1715)

Non-Oriented Fundamental Research Project. Ministry of Science and Innovation, Government of Spain
Ref. HAR2009-08019

Introduction:

This project is aimed at the study of the relations between cultural practices and practices of government in the monarchies of Spain and Portugal between 1580 and 1715. We wish to advance the comprehension of certain diverse and complex political realities, in which culture played an important role of cohesion and legitimisation, conditioning the decision-making activities of governments.

One of the basic concepts our research articulates is that of cultural transfer, conceived to study the interactions between cultures and societies in their historical dynamic. We hope to contribute to a better understanding of the origins of three distinctive traits of our present-day societies: globalisation, cultural hybridisation and the conflict between the global and the local.
