Welcome Guillem Martos Oms to our Team

We are thrilled to announce that Guillem Martos Oms has recently joined our team! Guillem brings a wealth of knowledge and a deep passion for historical research, making him a fantastic addition to our community.

Guillem is currently a doctoral student at both the University of Barcelona and the University of Lisbon. His thesis focuses on the reign of Garcia II, king of Congo from 1641 to 1661, a pivotal period in the history of the Kingdom of Congo. His research provides valuable insights into the complexities of African monarchies and their interactions with European powers.

In addition to his doctoral work, Guillem is an active member of two prominent research groups. With BRASILHIS, he explores the presence of African ambassadors in Brazil, shedding light on the intricate diplomatic relations that shaped the Atlantic world. At REDIF, his research delves into the role of Iberian missionaries as agents of Portuguese and Spanish royal patronage and cultural mediators in Africa between 1580 and 1640. His work in these groups highlights the crucial roles played by these missionaries in the cultural and political landscapes of the time.

Guillem's academic journey is impressive. He is pursuing a master’s degree in Archivistics and Records Management at the Carlos III University of Madrid, equipping him with essential skills for preserving and managing historical records. He also holds an inter-university master’s degree in Early Modern History from the Universities of Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante, and Jaume I of Castelló. This extensive educational background underpins his comprehensive understanding of historical processes and methodologies.

Among Guillem's diverse research interests are the diplomatic relations between the Spanish Empire and African states, the mobility of religious and civic agents within Iberian territories, and the evolution of the Kingdom of Congo between the 16th and 17th centuries. His multifaceted approach and dedication to uncovering nuanced historical narratives promise to bring fresh perspectives to our projects.

We are excited to see the contributions Guillem will make to our team and the broader historical community. Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Guillem Martos Oms!
