“Disembedding Salvador da Bahia from its Hinterland:

Economic and Social Aspects of a Proto-global City in Brazil, 1650-1750”

Christopher C. Ebert, Brooklyn College


My research and publications have concerned early-modern Atlantic trade involving Brazil, Europe and Africa, and the merchant networks and institutions that facilitated it. My current research focuses on one of the great early-modern Atlantic port cities, Salvador da Bahia, and involves economic and cultural analysis of markets, market institutions, networks and individuals from slave vendors to rich merchants. I also examine the role of Salvador as a vitally important link in many different global commodity chains as well as the South Atlantic’s most important maritime service port in the period to 1750.
