Webinar “Social classifications in the Portuguese monarchy (1749-1828)”

The Webinar “The social classifications in the Portuguese monarchy (1749-1828)”, with Nuno Gonçalo Monteiro, will take place on December 11, at 11 am.

This communication aims, firstly, to present and debate the production and appropriation of social classifications in the Portuguese monarchy between the mid-eighteenth century and the first liberalisms. Then, it seeks to cross this topic with the most acute social and political conflicts that cross the reported contexts. Debating the categorizations produced by the actors implies reflecting on how the horizontal classifications were articulated with the persistent corporate identities in a period of important political and social transformations. In contrast to the more generic and abstract formulations that can be associated with legislative production, uses and conflicts implied the delimitation of multiple very concrete and tangible borders.

Nuno Gonçalo Monteiro is a coordinating researcher at the Institute of Social Sciences at the University of Lisbon. Invited Full Professor at the Faculty of Arts, University of Lisbon. PhD in Modern History by F.C.S.H / Universidade Nova de Lisboa and added in History by ISCTE.

The event will take place via Zoom.
