The Radical Spanish Empire: Petitions and the Creation of the New World

Read all about it, in this interview and this discussion. Points for my papers:

Da Silva: postcolonialism and decoloniality reify Europe. This is my problem with her.

Magical realism: what the postcolonialists see in it (the representation of views of colonizer and colonized at once, as though there were only two elements) fits Latin America even less than I knew: Latin American society was not just an imperial imposition, but was co-created by the pueblo … the reyes did NOT know what was going to happen and had to cooperate and facilitate.

Axé.
