‘ReCapricorning’ the Atlantic
Special Issue of Luso-Brazilian Review
45:1 (2008)

Edited by Peter M. Beattie

This special issue of Luso-Brazilian Review  includes articles on the Lusophone South Atlantic by historians of Africa and Brazil originally presented in May of 2006 at the Michigan State University and University of Michigan’s Atlantic History Workshop “ReCapricorning the Atlantic: Luso-Brazilian and Luso-African Perspectives on the Atlantic World.” Workshop participants set out to “ReCapricorn the Atlantic” by assessing how new research on the Lusophone South Atlantic modifies, challenges, or confirms major trends and paradigms in the expanding scholarship on Atlantic history.

Peter M. Beattie is associate professor of history and the acting director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Michigan State University. His research interests lie at the intersection of Brazil’s state institutions and its multiracial and multiethnic poor (including enslaved populations) from around 1850 to 1950 through a combination of social, cultural, and institutional history. He is a coeditor of Luso-Brazilian Review.

Articles appear in either English or Portuguese.

António Vieira and the Luso-Brazilian Baroque

Special Issue of Luso-Brazilian Review 40:1 (2003)
Edited by Thomas Cohen and Stuart B. Schwartz

Preacher, politician, natural law theorist, administrator, diplomat, polemicist, prophetic thinker: Vieira was all of these things,

but nothing was more central to his self-definition than his role as missionary and pastor. Articles in this issue were originally presented at a conference commemorating the three hundredth anniversary of Vieira’s death.
