University of Lisbon: Transatlantic Studies Association Annual Conference 2021
July 5, 2021 @ 8:00 am - July 7, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
The Centre for International Studies at ISCTE-IUL (University Institute of Lisbon) is hosting the nineteenth annual conference of the Transatlantic Studies Association. On the right bank of the river Tagus, Lisbon’s history stretches back over time. The 15th and 16th century voyages of discovery turned the city into one of the world’s biggest ports and the centre of an empire that stretched from Brazil to India. Lisbon’s exceptional light has charmed writers, photographers and filmmakers with the polychrome façade tiles creating a unique atmosphere. On foot, by tram, by boat or walking along the river shorelines, any means serves to reveal the cultural diversity of the Portuguese capital as a singular gateway to the Atlantic.
