This dissertation examines the centrality of objects and material culture in the invention of the New World. Paying heed to understudied connections between historically contingent texts and their transatlantic contexts, it excavates the role of colonial objects in shaping colonial discourse during the first three centuries of Spain's rule in Mexico, Peru, and the Hispanic Caribbean (1492-1810). In order to uncover the "makedness" of colonial racializing schemas, "Colonial Assemblages" traces the emergence of a material discourse invested in the Indian as a trope and a figure that masks the multiple tensions operating simultaneously in colonial representations since at least the 1500s, but that reached new heights during the Hispanic Enlightenment. Chapter 1 studies the emergence of a dialectic, multistable concept and material entity, the New World object, in Christopher Columbus's Diario del primer viaje (c. 1493). The second chapter analyzes representations of colonial gold as a fetish of early modern imperialism and as a foundational materiality of colonial Latin American discourse in texts by Columbus, Hernán Cortés, Bartolomé de Las Casas, and engravings by Theodor De Bry. Chapter 3 argues that the cartographic grid and the space of the traza foreground a discourse of abstraction enacted by colonial objects and commodities that serve to exclude the "ugly Indian" in Bernardo de Balbuena's Grandeza mexicana (1604). The fourth chapter demonstrates how certain objects were linked to Andean and transatlantic notions of space and territoriality, and to the definition of indio and mestizo identities, in the works of Guaman Poma de Ayala and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega respectively. Finally, chapter 5 studies the racial portraits of New Spain as well as historical accounts and treatises by Carlos Sigüenza y Góngora and Antonio de León y Gama to illustrate how material culture becomes a contested site of representation for criollismo. This new focus on the textual and social life of objects charts an alternative path to present critiques of coloniality presuming the homogeneous expansion of lettered culture by further underscoring the conceptual value of material culture as a powerful agent in the dynamic assemblage of colonialism in the New World

Corporeal rhetoric and social order in the viceroyalty of New Spain: from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment by Yolopattli Hernandez-Torres( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the use of corporeal rhetoric in textual and visual representations of the colonial subject in New Spain. By corporeal rhetoric, I refer to the multiple ways in which the body is represented discursively to persuade readers in accordance with their personal agendas. In this dissertation, the body is understood as the material body, but additionally considered in its symbolical nature when it is related to systems of power and control. By focusing on the manner in which the body is utilized as a rhetorical device to depict New Spain⁰́₉s political, cultural, and religious reality, I will demonstrate how the representation of the colonial subject through the body is intrinsically embedded in the construction of New Spain⁰́₉s social order. This project encompasses a timeframe that ranges from 1579 to 1803, situating each work in relation to its historical, literary, and cultural tradition. The early writings are analyzed in light of the period traditionally denominated as ⁰́conquest⁰́₊, in which corporeal rhetoric was employed by Spanish religious authorities to evangelize the Amerindian groups. In the early colonial period, the concept of social order was defined by the interaction of elements such as the enforcement of Catholicism carried out by the missionary men, as well as the Amerindian population⁰́₉s adherence to these rules. The analysis of these texts suggests that the body of the missionary man embodies the Euro-Christian tradition. The tools they used in this process, written and visual, coexisted among the Amerindian cultures and sometimes clashed with their ancient traditions, especially the way in which the body is conceived by both cultures. The first chapter is devoted to the study of religious conversion of the Amerindian population and the manner in which the indigenous body works within that process in the illustrated book ⁰́Retórica cristiana⁰́₊ written by Diego de Valadés (1579). The second chapter analyzes the religious life of Sebastián de Aparicio, a Spanish man living in colonial Mexico who was the protagonist in the text ⁰́₋Vida y milagros del glorioso confessor de Cristo, Sebastián de Aparicio⁰́₊ (1629) by Bartolomé Sánchez Parejo. In this text, Aparicio⁰́₉s body incarnates the characteristics of sainthood for the local community. In the written works of the late colonial period, corporeal rhetoric is associated with the body politic. These texts deeply rooted in the tenets of the Enlightenment correlate the physical and psychological health of the individual with the health of the body politic. My contention is that in the Mexican texts of the late colonial period, the concept of social order can only thrive through the attempt to categorize and objectify those colonial bodies that are in need of social control. Nevertheless, the diverse shape of the colonial population and the vast geographic areas that they inhabited make this political effort very challenging. Chapter 3 focuses on two legal documents: ⁰́₋Relación de la causa de Juana María, mulata. Esclava, mulata y hechicera⁰́₊ (1750), which describes the legal process of Juana María, a woman accused of practicing witchcraft. And also the legal process ⁰́₋María Rita Vargas y María Lucía Celis. Beatas Embaucadoras de la colonia⁰́₊ (1803). This chapter examines the dangerous connotations that civil authorities attributed to certain women of the late colonial period based on her religious practices, her sexual gender, and her racial background. Lastly, chapter 4 studies the political treatise ⁰́₋Enfermedades políticas que padece la capital de esta Nueva España⁰́₊ (1787), which demonstrates the interrelation between the body politic and the social order. Villarroel⁰́₉s work evidences the relations between the health of an individual, the health of the entire population, and the measures of hygiene. His critique shows his interest in the promotion of the Bourbon reforms to heal the symbolic body of New Spain
