New Book by Karoline Noack and Ana María Presta (eds.): Repensando la sociedad colonial New Book by Prof. Dr. Karoline Noack and Prof. Dr. Ana María Presta (eds.): Repensando la sociedad colonial

Perspectivas, abordajes y desafíos de los enfoques multidisciplinares – Perú y Nueva España, siglos XVI–XVIII

Edited by BCDSS Co-Speaker and Principal Investigator Prof. Dr. Karoline Noack and Prof. Dr. Ana María Presta, the book analyzes the colonial period in its social diversity, contextualizes the historical moment in which it emerged, and conceptualizes this era in terms of its epistemological variables. 

The colonial difference that appears among them created racialized subjects. Figures such as that of the noble savage are extraordinarily enduring, and despite the constantly changing temporal and spatial contexts, they can still be activated to this day. The questions that colonial authorities explored as part of the imagination of society begin by inquiring who the "Indians" were and how they could ultimately be integrated. From multidisciplinary perspectives, the contributions present case studies for a new understanding of the colonial period, which also includes insights into the present.
