Renaissance Humanism and Iberia’s Global Empires
Stuart M. McManus
Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge and
Department of Classics, University of Chicago

Dr. McManus (M.A. Warburg Institute, Ph.D. Harvard) works on
the global history of empires with a focus on Latin America and
Iberian Asia, who has published widely on the cultural history of
Latin America, ethnohistory and the classical tradition. He argues
that the classical rhetorical tradition was a key technology of
empire and evangelization in the early modern Americas, Africa
and Asia, and can best be understood from a global perspective.
