Presenting my paper “German Heretics as Governors of the Colonies? Emperor
Charles V and the Welsers in Venezuela” in LASA LIMA 2017.Welser bankers in an Iberian Sovereignty panel.

I just returned from LASA Lima where I presented a paper on the Welser bankers from Augsburg as an example of the complex games of “sovereignty” that Emperor Charles V played when signing contracts with non- Castilian agents that were ultimately suspected of heresy. Great panel. Great Conference.

Todas las ponencias estuvieron super interesantes y se enfocaron en este tema complicado de la soberanía, o el mito de ella, en la época colonial.
