Abstract

This research analyses the specificities of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic
socioeconomic environment and it studies the Portuguese cross-border networks
during the period of the Portuguese aggregation to the Hispanic Monarchy with the
aim of providing, from a cisatlantic perspective, an innovative vision of transnational Atlantic dynamics, particularly between the American and island territories of the Mid-Atlantic. Methodologically, this research uses primary sources from the Canary Islands, mainly notarial documents, as well as from publications that have examined the Portuguese agency in the Hispanic colonial world.

Esta investigación parte del análisis de las especificidades de las islas Canarias en su entorno socioeconómico atlántico y del estudio de las redes portuguesas transfronterizas durante el periodo de la agregación portuguesa a la Monarquía Hispánica con el objetivo de aportar, desde una perspectiva cisatlántica, una visión innovadora de las dinámicas transnacionales atlánticas, particularmente entre los territorios americanos e insulares del Atlántico Medio. Metodológicamente, parte este estudio del análisis de fuentes primarias insulares, fundamentalmente notariales, así como de las publicaciones que han abordado la agencia portuguesa en el mundo hispánico colonial.
