YGNSA Members Reconsider “Space in Latin American History”

April 3, 2014

Scholars across the Americas recently came together at Yale University’s “Rethinking Space in Latin American History” conference, sharing transnational approaches to national histories. Using spatial categories of analysis, scholarly presentations examined Indigenous and non-Indigenous social formations within as well as across Latin American imperial and national spheres.

Several participants (photographed here) from the June 2013 YGSNA-Oxford University conference, “The Transnational Futures of Indigenous Histories,” attended as well as presented in this conference, including Pekka Hamalainen who presented the paper, “The Competing Spatialities of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico.”
