How did religious women redraw the map of Western culture during and after the First Globalisation? How can understanding the relationship between gender and religion change how we think about the history of the globalisation of culture?

Come and join this reading group to explore the multilingual and multicultural library of Global Iberias!

In these sessions, we will explore the archives of three Protestant women who travelled from and to the South Pacific to collaborate with the secularization of the States. Through their interactive methods of textual production, we will discover how they consolidated networks and negotiations while disseminating a gendered emancipation movement beyond the Americas. Using these case studies, we will discuss the importance of thinking about diplomacy beyond institutional perspectives and border disputes, and the impact of dissident friendships in contexts of hostility towards religion, gender and ethnicity.
