18 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays illuminates the experiences of pre-20th-century Latin American women ... There is surprisingly rich information about Indian and black women ... The diverse patterns of family roles and sex polarizations, trends in the feminist movement, and women's political participation are themes of significant importance in the essays. A welcome contribution to women's studies and to Latin American history, expecially since there is little available in English covering this

Brides of Christ : conventual life in colonial Mexico by Asunción Lavrín( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brides of Christ invites the modern reader to follow the histories of colonial Mexican nuns inside the cloisters where they pursued a religious vocation or sought shelter from the world. Asuncion Lavrin provides a complete overview of conventional life, including the early signs of vocation, the decision to enter a convent, profession, spiritual guidelines and devotional practices, governance, ceremonials, relations with male authorities and confessors, living arrangements, servants, sickness, and death rituals. Individual chapters deal with issues such as sexuality and the challenges to chastity in the cloisters and the little-known subject of the nuns' own writings as expressions of their spirituality. The foundations of convents for indigenous women receives special attention, because such religious communities existed nowhere else in the Spanish empire."--Jacket

Des Indes occidentales à l'Amérique Latine. Volume 1 by Hermosillo Adams( )

1 edition published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De part et d'autre de l'Atlantique, deux mondes longtemps unis sous l'autorité d'une même couronne, qu'elle soit espagnole ou portugaise, ont fini par se séparer au début du xixesiècle. Les Indes occidentales sont alors devenues l'Amérique latine mais les héritages préhispaniques et coloniaux n'ont pas cessé d'influencer les paysages urbains, les sociétés rurales et les mentalités collectives du monde latino-américain. Réunies pour rendre hommage au professeur Jean-Pierre Berthe, les quarante-six contributions présentées ici veulent donner de ce vaste ensemble, hétérogène sur le plan politique mais cohérent sur le plan culturel, une vision dynamique fondée sur la prise en compte de la longue durée. Le regard croisé d'historiens, de géographes, de sociologues, d'ethnologues et de linguistes permet de varier les approches scientifiques et de comparer des problématiques de recherche qui dépassent le cadre du continent américain pour s'intéresser aux relations entretenues par la métropole avec ses colonies. Dans cette perspective, l'imaginaire et les représentations symboliques ont autant d'importance que les réalités de la vie quotidienne, les luttes pour l'exercice du pouvoir ou l'évolution des pratiques économiques. Plus qu'un simple volume d'hommages, ce livre est donc un outil de recherche qui offre au lecteur curieux mille sujets de réflexion, aussi bien dans le domaine de l'histoire économique et sociale que dans celui de l'ethnohistoire ou de la géographie historique

Las esposas de Cristo : la vida conventual en la Nueva España by Asunción Lavrín( )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2019 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En tiempos medievales se creía que Jesús se acercaba a las mujeres desde su niñez para enamorarse de ellas, hacer que cayeran rendidas ante él y, en un futuro, desposarlas. El camino para conservar esta unión con Dios no era fácil: las elegidas tenían que dedicarse en cuerpo y alma a su esposo, deshaciéndose de todas las relaciones y tentaciones terrenales. Algunas consideraban que era necesario sufrir de igual manera que su amado, por lo que realizaban largos ayunos, se flagelaban y portaban instrumentos de cuerdas o de metal sobre la piel desnuda para provocarse incomodidad o dolor. ¿Qué Ilevó a estas mujeres a realizar tales sacrificios? ¿Por qué decidieron consagrarse en cuerpo y alma a la Vida religiosa? Estas preguntas son abordadas aqui por Asunción Lavrin con el fin de comprender el mundo que estuvo detrás de la decisión de cientos de mujeres de pertenecer a una institución religiosa. Centrada en los conventos de la Nueva Espana durante los siglos XVII y XVIII. Las esposas de Cristo es una oportunidad para conocer las normas de los conventos, las motivaciones de las novicias y las costumbres, las creencias, las tentaciones e incluso la sexualidad de las monjas del periodo virreinal. La formidable investigación documental y la ambición de Lavrin por cubrir todos los aspectos de la Vida conventual hacen que ésta sea una de las obras más complejas que se han realizado hasta ahora sobre la religiosidad durante la Colonia."--Page 4 of cover

The Case of the Ugly Suitor and Other Histories of Love, Gender, and Nation in Bueno by Jeffrey M Shumway( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1840 Gumerscindo Arroyo hoped to marry Francisca Canicoba, but her father forbade it. Consequently, Francisca took her father to court for permission to marry, where he objected on the grounds that Arroyo was simply too ugly. In the courtrooms of nineteenth-century Buenos Aires, children battled parents in order to fulfill their romantic desires and marry the mate of their choice. Parents and guardians also struggled for custody of young children, which some did out of love while others were greedy for child labor. In courtrooms and elsewhere, women challenged their traditional status as so
