Case Study

Daniel is author of InsSciDE case study Barbosa du Bocage: a scientist with diplomatic responsibilities during the Scramble for Africa (1883–1886). Read the pitch for this case study here

As a post-doctoral researcher in InsSciDE’s work package 3 on Science Diplomats, Daniel studies the diplomatic roles played by 19th-century Portuguese men of science, such as José Vicente Barbosa du Bocage (1823–1907) and João de Andrade Corvo (1824–1890), in the events leading to and arising from the Berlin Conference of 1884–1885, a key moment during the “Scramble for Africa”. In addition, he contributes to the work package’s research on the role played by European academies of science for the establishment and maintenance of international relations in Europe (18th to 20th centuries).
