The Baroque era is one of the most interesting periods in history since it’s possibly the first global cultural phenomenon that was understood as a whole. In fact, this year marks the anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the Earth by Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastian Elcano. The journeys carried out during the 16th century, a combination of adventure, discovery and conquest, were institutionalized during this period, acquiring a mature and scientific nature during the 18th century. Those travels helped to create a new way of perceiving the world while remarkable differences emerge between territories and eras; differences that enrich the culture of the period.

Ibero-American Baroque studies had an important summit in Rome in 1980, a meeting that was the origin of the congresses celebrated in Querétaro (1991), Seville (2001) and Ouro Preto (2006).

2021 marks the 41th anniversary of this first meeting; for this reason Granada takes up the torch holding the V International Congress of Ibero-American Baroque, from 30th of May to 3th of June 2021, aiming to bring together experienced and new researchers who work on topics related to Baroque.

This congress would not be possible without the generous support of the University of Granada; we are particularly grateful to the Department of Art History, the Ph.D. program "Historia y Artes", the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of University Extension and Heritage, the Cultural Heritage Office, the Latin American Studies Seminar, the Ibero-American Chair of Philosophy, Education and Culture and the Office of Transfer of Research Results.



The congress is addressed to researchers of any nationality who are working on Ibero-American Baroque culture as well as any person interested in the subject.

Only the framework conferences will be entrusted to researchers of recognized prestige who, in addition, will be part of the scientific committee.
