The Rundell Lecture with Geoffrey Parker

The Atrium
Monday, March 2, 2015 - 4:00 PM

Many thanks to all who attended the annual Rundell Lecture as Geoffrey Parker presented "Incest, Blind Faith, and Conquest: Defining Boundaries the Habsburg way, 1500-1700"

Geoffrey Parker is Distinguished University Professor, Andreas Dorpalen Professor of European History, and Associate of the Mershon Center at the Ohio State University.  His teaching focuses on the Reformation, European history, and military history. In 2006, Professor Parker won an OSU Alumni Distinguished Teaching Award.  Professor Parker’s research explores the social, political, and military history of Europe between 1500 and 1650, with special reference to Spain and its empire. His first book, The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road. The Logistics of Spanish Victory and Defeat in the Low Countries Wars, 1567-1659 (1972; revised 2004), tried to explain why Spain–the only western superpower of its day–failed to suppress the Dutch Revolt.  Professor Parker has authored, edited, and co-edited 37 books; he has written over 100 articles and book chapters.  His most recent book, Imprudent King: a New Life of Philip II (Yale, 2014), included much previously unknown material from a cache of 3,000 documents written by or to King Philip that Parker found and cataloged at the Hispanic Society of America.  Parker was the recipient of the 2012 biennial Heineken Prize for History given by the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences.

 

A copy of Global Crisis: War, Climate Change & Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century and of Imprudent King: a New Life of Philip II are available for review in the Miller Center.
