Academic Profile

The Integration of the Kale in Early Modern Iberian Society (ca. Sixteenth to ca. Eighteenth Centuries)

The area of my interest locates broadly in early modern Spain, within the multiple entanglements connecting religion, the law, economic-political institutions and social practices, as a historical relation to the Romani collective Kale (Spanish gitanos).

My study is concerned with a two-fold question: the antagonistic relationship between royal decrees to control their mobility and regulate their social life and economic dependency, and the Kale's "refractory resistance" to the assimilationist purpose of the law. Further to the analysis of forms of coercion, the confronting semantics of power and the degree of permeation into the existing forms of social and individual comportment, this research aims at the composition of patterns of dependency and reciprocity among Iberian early modern society which allow the reconstruction of a history of the gitanos' daily experience beyond the unrelenting image of the outcast so prevalent in our imaginary.
