Amerind Online Lecture: The Global Spanish Empire: Colonial and Indigenous Place Making and Pluralism across Time and Space


Aug 15 2020 - 11:00am

Free Online Lecture via Zoom: 

The Global Spanish Empire: Colonial and Indigenous Place Making and Pluralism across Time and Space with John G. Douglass (Statistical Research, Inc. and the University of Arizona) and Christine D. Beaule (University of Hawai’i at Mānoa)

Saturday, August 15, 2020, 11:00 a.m., Arizona time


In the fall of 2018, we were fortunate to have been able to co-organize an Amerind Foundation seminar focused on Spanish colonialism. The seminar resulted in our recent book entitledThe Global Spanish Empire: Five Hundred Years of Place Making and Pluralism (2020, University of Arizona Press), which drew together an international group of amazing scholars. The project helped us better understand, through their case studies, the role of place making in colonial societies and the pluralistic nature of these diverse groups of people brought together. Our talk will highlight not only the key takeaways from our group study, but also offer important insight into the role of Iberian colonialism across the globe from the 1300s through the 1800s.


Dr. Christine D. Beaule is an associate professor in the Department of Languages and Literatures of Europe and the Americas, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. Her work focuses on Spanish colonialism in both the Philippines and the central highland Andes.


Dr. John G. Douglass, vice president of research and standards at Statistical Research, Inc., and adjunct professor in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona. His research has focused on Indigenous-Colonial interaction, religious performance, household archaeology, and community creation in the American Southwest, California, and Mesoamerica.
