    The Franciscans in Mexico

    Five Centuries of Cultural Influence

    Generations of scholars have studied the multi-faceted experiences of the Franciscans in Mexico and the ways in which the Franciscan order shaped New Spain and the early Mexican republic. This conference examines the range of Franciscan influence and analyzes new scholarship that focuses on the multiple discourses with which friars engaged native peoples, creole populations, the vice-regal authorities, and other actors throughout the Spanish empire.  The conference brings together junior and senior scholars to study the long Franciscan experience in Mexico on the eve of the commemoration of the quincentenary of the Spanish — and thus the Franciscan— presence in Mexico.

    Cultural transfer in the Catholic world

    The circulation of ideas, intercultural contacts and the transformation of institutional practices

    Le concept de « transfert culturel », tel que développé par Michel Espagne et Michael Werner à la fin des années 1980, a permis à nombre de chercheurs en études littéraires, d’abord, mais aussi en histoire et en sciences sociales de reconsidérer les liens unissant les peuples et les échanges résultant de leur mises en relations. Cette approche se révèle particulièrement pertinente pour l’étude de l’histoire de l’Église catholique, car les échanges entre aires culturelles distinctes ont de tout temps marqué l’évolution du catholicisme. En s’attardant aux circulations, aux emprunts et aux hybridations entre deux ou plusieurs aires culturelles, la réflexion des chercheurs travaillant sur l’histoire de l’Église catholique au Canada dans sa dimension transnationale s’en trouve dynamisée.
