Las Casas and His World: the Defender of the Indians in Context
23rd March: 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm GMT
Oxford Consortium for Human Rights Annual Lecture
Bartolomé de Las Casas, widely known as ‘the defender of the Indians’, is often presented as a lonely voice confronting the forces of darkness that surrounded him. This lecture attempts to place Las Casas in a wider historical context in order to reassess the originality of his contribution to the struggle for justice in the New World.
A lecture by Dr Fernando Cervantes, Bristol University.
The event is sponsored by the Oxford Consortium for Human Rights (OCHR) and the Las Casas Institute.
