1. Colomar Ferrer, Santiago. Una frontera oblidada. Atacs i desembarcaments de corsaris nordafricans a Catalunya, València i Balears: 1571-1650.

Degree: Departament d'Història Moderna, 2016, Universitat de Barcelona

At the end of the sixteenth century, the Mediterranean became a politically forgotten frontier. The problems of the Ottoman Empire, the financial troubles of the Spanish Monarchy, the situation in Flandes and Philip the Second’s aspirations to the Portuguese crown favored the signature of several truces between the two empires (1577-1581). Such political oblivion and the economical problems left the defense of the Mediterranean territories of the Spanish Monarchy in a precarious condition, causing a delay in the finalization of fortification works, the deterioration of garrisons and a lack of weapons and ammunitions. This fact, together with the rising of an increasingly Barbarian privateering, led to a militarization of the civil society, at different levels, depending on the areas. This phenomenon intensified in the first half of the seventeenth century, when the banditry accentuated in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands. In this period of political oblivion and precarious defense, the towers became the most important element to face the corsairs’ new forms of warfare, based on small scale raids. Unfortunately, this network of watchtowers only offered guarantees in the kingdom of Valencia and because there were not always coastal patrol vessels, the sea defense was insufficient. Such situation left the coast of Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands with few options against Barbarian privateering, which reached its highest point in the decade of 1640s. This corsair activity mainly came from the Regency of Algiers, which became a peripheral and autonomous province of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the sixteenth century. Between 1571 and 1610, the North African corsairs used, above all, traditional vessels and the most common practice was the small raids. Between 1611 and 1650, with the emergence of sailing ships, high sea captures increased but muslims continued using traditional crafts, so the small raids by surprise did not disappear. The Maghrebis caused a lot of damage to coastal populations because, apart from taking captives, they raided and burnt villages, destroyed harvests, stole and killed flocks, desecrated churches, demolished towers, attacked fishing boats, distorted maritime trade and cut off sea communications. The human and material impact of these corsair attacks worsened the economical situation of the families and settlements on the coasts, which was specially delicate in the first half of the seventeenth century.

2. BRUNO MACCHIUTE NEVES DE OLIVEIRA. [en] AT THE WORLD S END: THE MAKING OF THE MODERN POLITICAL IMAGINARY FROM THE NAVIGATION ACCOUNTS OF THE XVI AND XVII CENTURIES.

Degree: 2018, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro

[pt] Desde o momento em que Cristóvão Colombo colocou seus pés pela primeira vez nas Américas, o espectro da violência privada no mar esteve por perto, fosse ela empreendida pelas mãos dos próprios espanhóis, fosse por aqueles que disputavam com eles o direito de explorar as riquezas recém-descobertas. Nesta tese argumentamos que os relatos de navegação deixados por corsários, piratas e bucaneiros nos séculos XVII e XVII foram parte fundamental para a criação do imaginário europeu acerca do Novo Mundo e de seus habitantes. Procuramos explorar uma diversidade de relatos que, cada qual à seu modo, representaram os dilemas políticos que vieram a desembocar na criação do Estado e do sujeito político modernos. Este processo, contudo, não foi linear, como em uma escala de progresso em direção à civilidade. Pelo contrário, a leitura dos relatos de navegação nos revela uma experiência diversa e frequentemente contraditória. O escopo desta tese abarca os séculos XVI e XVII. Neste período as instituições sociais herdadas da idade média tardia que ordenaram a relação entre indivíduos e sociedade estavam em franco declínio, processo este que somente se aprofundou com a reimaginação da geografia planetária após os descobrimentos. Argumentamos nesta tese que a figura do pirata foi um ator central nesta reimaginação do mundo a partir de suas margens, de suas áreas limítrofes. Ao longo do trabalho, abordamos os relatos de André Thevet e Jean de Léry, Francis Drake, Anthony Knivet, Alexander Exquemeling e, por fim, o romance Rosbinson Crusoé, de Daniel Defoe. Cada um destes trabalhos trouxe algo de novo para a complexa equação que teve lugar nos dois séculos em questão.

[en] Since when Christopher Columbus first came into the Americas, the specter of private violence stood nearby. This thesis argues that the accounts of navigations left by the privateers, pirates and buccaneers of the XVI and XVII centuries were crucial parts for the making of the European imaginary about the New World, its inhabitants, and the European place in it. We explore the diversity of accounts that, each in its own way, represents the political dilemmas that came to a close at the Modern Estate and the Modern political subjects. This process, thought, should not be represented as an unambiguous tale of progressive civilization. On the contrary, the reading of the accounts of navigation reveals a much more ambiguous and frequently contradictory experience. The scope of this thesis encompass the XVI and XVII centuries. During this time, the late medieval social and political institutions that mediated the relations between society and individuals were at a steady decline. The discoveries made by the Spanish and the Portuguese and the following re-imagination of global geography only aggravated the problem, and from the ashes of the late medieval system modernity arose. We argue that the pirate figure was a central actor in this process acting from the margins. During this thesis we explore the accounts of Andre Thevet and Jean de Léry, Francis drake,…
