Con mucha frecuencia, las vías que a diario son solo holladas por pacíficos caminantes se tornan en sendas cuyo caminar obedece a razones diametralmente opuestas.

A little-known feature of the vast migrant labour system that supplied South Africa’s gold-mining industry was the Deferred Pay Interest Fund. For much of the 20th century, a portion of the wages owed to African mine workers was deferred and remitted to them only at the end of their contracts. This is well-known, but what happened to the i…[Read more]
Oscar Perea-Rodriguez deposited Censura y autocensura en la temprana imprenta hispánica: el linaje Villandrando, condes de Ribadeo, y los «Claros varones de Castilla», de Fernando de Pulgar in the group History on Humanities Commons 1 month, 2 weeks ago
El lugar de importancia en la historia de la cultura hispánica medieval que ocupan los Claros varones de Castilla (BETA texid 1714) es absolutamente indiscutible.

This article reflects on how our own technological developments can help us see Herodotus’ archetype of historical inquiry in a new light. It explores various aspects of place in the Histories—as spaces that are lived, constructed, and relational—to show how and why the idea of place can be such a powerful means for linking information and under…[Read more]
La valía militar y guerrera de Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, universalmente conocido por su apodo de Gran Capitán, comenzó a difundirse casi de inmediato en la literatura de los tiempos que le tocaron vivir, hasta el punto de que se podría considerar al héroe cordobés como “la primera figura contemporánea a cuyo alrededor se agolpa esa intensa ac…[Read more]
