Jorge Cañizares-Esguerra is one of the leading figures in Atlantic World Studies today. How to Write the History of the New World: Histories, Epistemologies, and Identities in the Eighteenth-Century Atlantic World (Stanford, 2001) won both the John Edwin Fagg Book Prize for Spanish and Latin American History and the Atlantic History Book Prize from the American Historical Association.  Puritan Conquistadors: Iberianizing the Atlantic, 1550-1700 (Stanford, 2006) juxtaposes Anglo-Puritan and Hispano-Catholic discourses of demons, virgins, and angels to reveal unexpected points of contact. He has also co-edited, with Erik R. Seeman, The Atlantic in Global History, 1500-2000 (Prentice Hall, 2006).
