Conference: Foreign Relations of Peru with Great Britain in the mid 19th Century . November 11

The mid-19th century was a difficult period for Peru’s relations with the United States and Great Britain. Relations with the US were strained due to the Manifest Destiny-inspired policy of aggressive territorial expansion towards the south and its intention to appropriate, or have direct access to, Peruvian guano, the miraculous fertilizer for worn-out lands. In its turn, Great Britain’s aggressive policy towards Peru included its unofficial support of a military expedition by General Juan José Flores, the former President of Ecuador, to install a monarchy in his country, which would also have threatened Peru. This situation led Peruvian President Ramón Castilla, together with Foreign Minister Gregorio Paz Soldán, to form a system of Hispanic American hemispheric defense against all forms of aggression from abroad, which achieved considerable success in gaining recognition of Peru’s sovereign rights by foreign powers.

Speakers : Rosa Garibaldi, PhD, Peruvian historian and diplomat, with comments by Natalia Sobrevilla (Kent) and Rory Miller (Liverpool)

Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm FREE ENTRANCE

Venue : Room G22/26 (Senate House, Ground Floor) Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
