The Early Modern Iberia (EMI) Study Group is an interdisciplinary collective of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania. We seek to bring together students and scholars of cultural, political, and environmental aspects of the early modern Iberian world, including the European, African, Asian, and American territories of the Spanish and Portuguese empires. Our hope is to create a forum for exchange among Penn’s researchers and a harbor for colleagues from other institutions. Contact us at To subscribe to the EMI email list, visit our Google Groups page.
