Abstract

En esta investigación se analiza el desarrollo de las relaciones socioeconómicas transatlánticas del continente africano durante el periodo de la agregación de Portugal a la Monarquía Hispánica. El objetivo es abordar el encajamiento de África en las dinámicas oceánicas durante la consolidación del mundo atlántico a partir del análisis, como objeto de estudio, de las islas de la Macaronesia como nexo entre el continente vecino y los territorios circundantes. El propósito de este trabajo, sustentado en el examen de fuentes documentales coetáneas y en la crítica historiográfica, es conocer las relaciones transfronterizas que conectaron el África atlántica con otros territorios vinculados al océano a partir de redes mercantiles transnacionales.

This research considers how the African continent’s transatlantic socioeconomic relations developed during the period of the Portuguese integration into the Hispanic monarchy. This paper sets out to examine Africa’s engagement in transoceanic dynamics during consolidation of the Atlantic world based on the analysis, as an object of study, of the Macaronesian islands as a link between the neighbouring continent and the surrounding territories. The purpose of this research, based on the analysis of contemporary documentary sources and on historiographic criticism, is to explore the cross-border relations that connected Atlantic Africa with other oceanic territories through transnational trading networks.
