Africans to Spanish America : expanding the diaspora by Sherwin K Bryant( )

16 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and held by 1,742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploring the connections between colonial Latin American historiography and the scholarship on the African Diaspora in the Spanish empires, Africans to Spanish America points to the continuities as well as disjunctures between the two fields of study. While a majority of the research on the colonial diaspora focuses on the Caribbean and Brazil, analysis of the regions of Mexico and the Andes open up new questions of community formation that incorporated Spanish legal strategies in secular and ecclesiastical institutions as well as articulations of multiple African identities. Therefore, it is critically important to expand the lens of the Diaspora framework that has come to shape so much of the recent scholarship on Africans in the Americas. Comprised of nine original essays, this volume is organized into three sections. Starting with voluntary and forced migrations across the Atlantic, Part I explores four distinct cases of identity construction that intersect with ongoing debates in African Diaspora scholarship regarding the models of continuity and creolization in the Americas. Part II interrogates how enslaved and free people employed their rights as Catholics to present themselves as civilized subjects, loyal Christians, and resisters to slavery. Part III asks how free people of color claimed categories of inclusion based on a identities of professional medical practitioners of "white" in transformative moments of the late colonial period"--
Black Mexico : race and society from colonial to modern times( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection build upon a series of conversations and papers that resulted from "New Directions in North American Scholarship on Afro-Mexico," a symposium conducted at Pennsylvania State University in 2004. The issues addressed include contested historiography, social and economic contributions of Afro-Mexicans, social construction of race and ethnic identity, forms of agency and resistance, and contemporary inquiry into ethnographic work on Afro-Mexican communities. Comprised of a core set of chapters that examine the colonial period and a shorter epilogue addressing the modern era, this volume allows the reader to explore ideas of racial representation from the sixteenth century into the twenty-first

African slavery in Latin America and the Caribbean by Herbert S Klein( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"African Slavery in Latin America and the Caribbean" is an original survey of the economic and social history of slavery and of the Afro-American experience in Latin America and the Caribbean. Covering not only Spanish but also Portuguese and French regions and encompassing the latest research on the plantation system as well as on mining and the urban experience, the book brings together the recent findings on demography, the slave trade, the construction of the slave community, and Afro-American culture. The book also sheds new light on the processes of accommodation and rebellion and the experience of emancipation. The book concludes with a look at the post-emancipation integration patterns in the different societies, analyzing the relative success of the ex-slaves in obtaining control over land and escaping from the old plantation regimes. -- From publisher's description
Bearing arms for his majesty : the free-colored militia in colonial Mexico by Ben Vinson( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study uses the participation of free-colored men, whether mulatos, pardos, or morenos (i.e., Afro-Spaniards, Afro-Indians, or "pure blacks"), in New Spain's militias as a prism for examining race relations, racial identity, racial categorization, and issues of social mobility for racially stigmatized groups in Colonial Mexico. By 1793, nearly 10 percent of New Spain's population was made up of people who could trace some African ancestry - people subject to more legal disabilities and social discrimination than mestizos, who in turn fell below white creoles, who in turn fell below the Spanish-born, in the stratified and caste-like society of Colonial Spanish America."--BOOK JACKET
Before mestizaje : the frontiers of race and caste in colonial Mexico by Ben Vinson( Book )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the dawn of Spain's venture into the New World until the end of its colonial regime, Spanish America was gripped by an almost innate need to process, categorize, and label human differences in an effort to manage its vast empire. Whether it was conquistadors seeking to establish grades of difference between themselves and native rulers, or simple artisans striving to distinguish themselves from their peers, people paid careful attention to what others looked like, how they lived, what they wore, and how they behaved. Over time, rules were created to contain transgressions. The wearing of costumes and masks outside of sanctioned events and holidays was soundly discouraged, lest disguises lead to crimes, immorality, and mistaken identities. People who lived as others could be labeled criminals, and those who moved across color boundaries to enjoy privileges not associated with their caste did so at their own risk and peril. When legislation failed to control behavior, social pressure impelled obedience and conformity"--Provided by publisher

Studying race from the margins : the 'Forgotten Castes' - Lobos, Moriscos, Coyotes, Moros, and Chinos in the colonial Mexican caste system by Ben Vinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the 1791 military census of Revillagigedo and the 1811 Mexico City census, this essay analyzes the functioning of the late colonial Mexican caste system, particularly with respect to Afro-Mexican racial categories. Of critical importance is studying the demographic impact of lobos, coyotes, moriscos, and chinos. Through an analysis of these groupings, which have received little previous attention in the scholarly literature, new insights are gained into racial pluralism and mestizaje in the colonies. These marginal groupings provide a deeper understanding of the colonial mentality and of the currency of core racial groupings, such as mulatto, español, and mestizo - Author's abstract
