Academic Profile

My research examines early modern Spain, specifically the many entanglements that connect religion, the law, economic-political institutions, and social interactions in historical relation to the Romani collective Kale (Spanish gitanos). It focuses on two issues: the conflicting relation between royal decrees intended at limiting their mobility and regulating their social and economic life, and the Kale's "refractory resistance" to the law's assimilationist purpose. In addition to analyzing forms of coercion, confronting semantics of power, and the degree of permeation into existing forms of social and individual comportment, this research aims to compose patterns of dependency and reciprocity among Iberian early modern society and reconstruct a history of the gitanos' daily experience beyond the unrelenting image of the outcast.
