Ilhas do Mar Oceano: Formas de Governança em Espaços de Fronteira

Translated title of the contribution: Islands of the Ocean Sea: Forms of Governance in Frontier Space

Edite Alberto (Editor/Coordinator), Margarida Lalanda (Editor/Coordinator)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The government of the land is related to different appropriations and interpretations of the way of exercising power and administering a territory. Focusing on the archipelagos of the Azores, Cape Verde, Canary Islands and Madeira between the 15th and 18th centuries, the colloquium that gave birth to this ebook seeked to gather researchers from various disciplinary areas, which, based on historical research, analysed the forms of government that characterized the administration of the islands in their own originalities as border spaces and in the specificity of the application of the norms emanating from the Crown.
As the topic "Frontiers as Places of contact" is the transversal theme and binder of the ongoing research work at CHAM, the group Society, Politics and Institutions organized this colloquium and two of its integrated researchers, Edite Martins Alberto and Margarida Sá Nogueira Lalanda, directed this ebook.
