Diego Salinas De los Santos

Biography and/or project

I hold an MPhil degree in Early Modern History from the University of Cambridge. I also hold a BA in History from the University of British Columbia. My research focuses on the intellectual interactions between European and non-European societies across the early modern Atlantic and Mediterranean worlds, specifically on the emergence of the concepts of ‘world history’ and ‘exoticism’ in early modern intellectual frameworks, with a special emphasis on the Iberian and Mediterranean worlds. I am currently working on contextualizing Jerónimo Román y Zamora's Repúblicas del Mundo as part of an early modern Iberian historiographical tradition in which Western and non-Western epistemic traditions became entangled.
