Current Research Projects
Prof. Flores’ recent research has focused on the political communication, as well as on the production and circulation of cultural imagery between the Portuguese Empire and Mughal India. He is currently completing two books on the topic:the Mughal Padshah. A Jesuit Treatise on Emperor Jahangir’s Court and Household (Leiden and Boston, Brill, 2015); and Unwanted Neighbours: The Mughals, the Portuguese, and their Frontiers (New Delhi, Oxford University Press, expected 2016). Among other future projects, Prof. Flores will soon start writing with Jos Gommans (Leiden University) a comparative history of the Portuguese Estado da Índia and the Dutch VOC.
