ECERM was founded by four historians of the Department of Humanities of the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF), who have contributed to the historiographical renewal of the study of early modern ethnographies, cross-cultural encounters and religious missions in the Iberian empires. We also have external members with whom we cooperate on a  regular basis.
