Abstract

NEVES, Lucia Maria Bastos Pereira das. ON INDIVIDUALS AS ACTORS OF HISTORY: CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT THE ARTICLE BY PATRICK PUIGMAL. Almanack [online]. 2019, n.23, pp.35-63.  Epub Dec 13, 2019. ISSN 2236-4633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/2236-463320192304.

In this article, we discuss some reflections suggested by Patrick Puigmal in his article “Military and Napoleonic Agents in the Independence of Latin America: From Forgers of the New Armies to Actors of the Political Debate” (translation by the author), and raise some questions about the action of these individuals in the Ibero-American independence processes. Based on a theoretical analysis of political history with its new assumptions, which included biographical studies and a broader history, we sought to extract the most essential points from the article, especially those highlighting Brazil’s case. We further analyzed the exchanges and circulation of men and ideas and their meetings in Ibero-America so as to go beyond a history solely focused on national borders.

Keywords : Napoleon Bonaparte; independence of Ibero-America; military; cultural transmitters; Atlantic history.
