This article discusses gender and sexuality during the national period and the shift from women's history to the study of the social construction of both femininity and masculinity and of various forms of sexuality. Gender here is both a topic and a category of analysis.

However, some of the slaves soon rebelled and burned the fledgling town before running to the rugged interior hinterlands where they formed runaway, or maroon, communities known as palenques. Some of these maroon settlements survived for centuries, resisting the Spanish military expeditions that attempted to eradicate them.

Soon enslaved Africans replaced Indian rowers on the boats transporting goods to and from Cartagena and Mompox, which was essentially an inland Caribbean port. Enslaved Africans also built the vast complex of fortifications and public works that protected Cartagena, while potentially more fortunate slaves served as domestics in the private homes and the many convents of the city. Goldseeking raiders killed hundreds of natives, burned native villages, attempted to establish fortified settlements, and were repeatedly driven away.

Hostile native groups with deadly poison-tipped arrows also prevented Spaniards from settling in the area in the early years of exploration. In the nineteenth century, it again became the regional capital. An estimated 20, Chocoanos, most of African descent, have been displaced by the violence. All date from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and many have suffered damage from humidity, fungus and lack of attention in poorly maintained storage space.

The records recovered by the EAP project allow researchers to reconstruct the history of these largely forgotten regions and populations. Indeed, almost every slave inventory from the eighteenth century lists at least one or two slave runaways. The Colombian Pacific still has — as it has since reliable records begin — some of the highest morbidity and mortality rates of any place in the Americas. This should not be surprising given the harsh climate of the area, the impoverished conditions in which most of the inhabitants of the region still live, and the violence that has characterised the rise and decline of mining and narcotic plantation booms in the region.

The black sailing my piragua was a magnificent human specimen. However, he had on his thigh an enormous scrofulous, or venereal tumor, a disease that was very common around the places through which we were traveling. The blacks who received us were covered in venereal ulcers and disfigured by cancerous afflictions [certainly symptoms of leprosy]. They live very happily as a family when there is a complete nose for ten people. This is a most sad spectacle.

For instance, Fig. The records coming from the Colombian Pacific also illustrate the dynamics of community formation in these rancherias that were outside the purview of the state. These cases are probably but a fraction of the real incidence of the disease in the population. Except for anecdotal reports coming from travellers like Boussingault, there is virtually no information, outside the records saved by the EAP project, regarding the health conditions, or for that matter, economic, demographic and social conditions of the black population of these villages on the banks of the Atrato and San Juan Rivers at that time.

Modernisation of the country became a national priority, for which leprosy was an obstacle. According to nineteenth century publications on the geography of leprosy, Colombia competed with India for primacy in terms of incidence of the disease — a contest that the Colombian elites refused to win. In the s, John Hawkins illicitly sold slaves seized in Sierra Leone to local pearl fishermen and, in , his kinsman, the famous English pirate Francis Drake, sacked Riohacha and sailed away with African slaves as part of his booty.

Conditions were brutal and many of the enslaved, like their counterparts elsewhere in Colombia, soon fled their misery eastward to the La Guajira Peninsula where they joined indigenous rebels fighting their mutual Spanish oppressors. The bulk of this highly profitable, but in Spanish law, illicit, trade was in livestock horses, cattle, mules and goats , textiles and slaves.

For example, on 23 March , the widow Ana Sierra sold a year-old mulatta slave named Felipa to Maria Francisca Blanchard, a merchant in Riohacha, for pesos. Peace allowed for the southward expansion of the agricultural and cattle ranching frontier, increased production for internal consumption and commercial exchange, and the further integration of Riohacha.

As Bourbon reformers of the eighteenth century attempted to halt smuggling and encourage development in Riohacha, they also established new towns to help support their most important port of Cartagena de Indias.

The Catholic church mandated the baptism of African slaves in the fifteenth century and extended this requirement across the Catholic Americas. Once baptised, Africans and their descendants were also eligible for the sacraments of marriage and a Christian burial. Thus, community networks can be traced through patterns of compadrazgo godparentage. However, researchers can at times find racial clues in the names of parents. In Fig.

That the father bore an ethnic surname suggests that he is African-born, or at least not recognised as fully acculturated. However, he is a free man; otherwise his enslaved status would have been noted. A notation to the left of the entry indicates that the baptism was performed as an act of charity, meaning that the parents could not afford the standard ecclesiastical fee.

Despite challenges from French and Dutch competitors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Portuguese successfully colonised Brazil, transferring techniques of sugarcane cultivation and slaves from West and Central Africa to the coast of Brazil. The names and dates of the first settlers to the region are unknown but they clustered along river routes to raise livestock and routinely battled the Cariri and Tarairiu Indians.

Note the Capitania de Paraiba, highlighted on the northeastern coast. Traveling salesmen with convoys of donkeys distributed these products throughout the hinterland towns.

That historians have only recently begun to emphasise the importance of reconstructing and analysing the history of this population is not surprising, given their subaltern status. These recurrent droughts killed livestock and slaves and created a cycle of poverty in the region from which, some would say, it has never fully recovered. Unfortunately, as the examples that follow demonstrate, these sources are frequently in poor condition and in danger of disintegrating or disappearing within the next decade.

The iron-based ink originally used to record these documents has oxidised, eating through the paper and leaving fragile, brittle pages that either break into strips or seem to disintegrate at the slightest touch.

Preserving a digital copy of these records, then, is the only way to ensure further research in these documents. Photo by Courtney J. The governor would respond to the petition with a letter determining a period by which the petitioner had to cultivate the land and, once the petitioner had met these requirements, he or she would send a new petition to the King who would confirm the sesmaria.

These grants came with strings attached: in order to maintain ownership of the land, the landowner had to cultivate it productively; otherwise, the Portuguese Crown would rescind the grant. For example, the document in Fig. While these land grants are fairly formulaic, we learn particular details from each.

Finally, the inclusion in this letter of handwritten copies of other letters exchanged with various authorities about this particular grant allows the reader to witness the various levels of bureaucracy involved in the granting of one plot of land. This volume is in a particularly damaged state, suffering from both insect damage and oxidisation of iron-based ink, with the above page being one of the few that is in one piece and fully legible. It also includes documents referring to the parish finances Of particular interest in this book are the terms used to describe those baptised, married or buried.

At times, slaves also served as godparents. We also learn from this document details about the layout of the region, the names of the fazendas ranches , and the names of smaller chapels where burials were also performed. She demonstrates that slaves often tried to purchase freedom or escape, while the poor black population lived precariously on the edge of freedom and slavery. Slaves used baptism to establish kinship relations with free people in an attempt to seek freedom, or, at the very least, to create social conditions that eased their survival in captivity.

As Brazil struggles to come to terms with the legacies of indigenous displacement and African slavery, quilombos maroon-descended communities and indigenous groups might draw upon these records to legally establish their lineage or vindicate their rights. The FCP also is in charge of protecting the legal rights of quilombos and pulling together the documentation necessary to support their historical justification.

Ecclesiastical records, like those used to support the research of Lima, Pereira, and Mouzinho, are fundamental in the preservation of Afro-Brazilian patrimony. By combining data from historical sources with GIS and satellite technologies, the Tabajara and socially-dedicated scholars have joined forces with some humble, yet significant successes.

This recognition demonstrates that the importance of histories based on these endangered sources has gained national attention as Brazilian scholars emphasise the importance of studying the effects of slavery on its multi-ethnic population.

Gender and Sexuality in Latin America

Latin America [a] is a group of countries and dependencies in the Western Hemisphere where Romance languages such as Spanish , Portuguese , and French are predominantly spoken. Some subnational regions such as Quebec and parts of the United States where Romance languages are primarily spoken are not usually included due to the countries as a whole being a part of Anglo America an exception to this is Puerto Rico , which is almost always included within the definition of Latin America despite being a territory of the United States. The term is broader than categories such as Hispanic America , which specifically refers to Spanish-speaking countries and Ibero-America , which specifically refers to both Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries. The term is also more recent in origin. The term "Latin America" was first used in an conference with the title "Initiative of America. Including French-speaking territories, Latin America would consist of 20 countries and 14 dependent territories that cover an area that stretches from Mexico to Tierra del Fuego and includes much of the Caribbean.

However, some of the slaves soon rebelled and burned the fledgling town before running to the rugged interior hinterlands where they formed runaway, or maroon, communities known as palenques. Some of these maroon settlements survived for centuries, resisting the Spanish military expeditions that attempted to eradicate them. Soon enslaved Africans replaced Indian rowers on the boats transporting goods to and from Cartagena and Mompox, which was essentially an inland Caribbean port. Enslaved Africans also built the vast complex of fortifications and public works that protected Cartagena, while potentially more fortunate slaves served as domestics in the private homes and the many convents of the city. Goldseeking raiders killed hundreds of natives, burned native villages, attempted to establish fortified settlements, and were repeatedly driven away. Hostile native groups with deadly poison-tipped arrows also prevented Spaniards from settling in the area in the early years of exploration.

Чаша была уже совсем близко, когда Халохот заметил человека в пиджаке и брюках разного цвета. - Estas ya muerto, - тихо прошептал он, двигаясь по центральному проходу. Ты уже мертвец. Времени на какие-либо уловки уже не. Два выстрела в спину, схватить кольцо и исчезнуть.
