I am organizing a panel for the 2011 AHA meeting in Boston that will gather historians interested in discussing the theoretical implications of studying Indians and blacks simultaneously for Latin American social and political history. The panel aims to take earlier studies about on the ground relations of indigenous people with free and enslaved blacks in different settings during the colonial period to an analytical level, and move into the independence and postcolonial years. Panelists will reflect on the legal frameworks that differentiated between Indians and free or enslaved blacks and ask why and how legal and racial identities endured throughout independence.
Anyone interested in participating as a panelist please send an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 8, 2010.
