Work-in-progress talk by LAL Greenleaf fellow Luis Alberto Arrioja.

February 25th, 2011
3 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Latin American Library Seminar Room, 4th Floor of Howard Tilton Library

The talk will be on “Liberalismo, pueblos de indios y tierras comunales en dos espacios del México poscolonial: Oaxaca y Michoacán, 1742-1860” (“Liberalism, Indian Towns and Communal Lands in Two Spaces in Post-Colonial Mexico: Oaxaca and Michoacán, 1742-1860”). Arrioja will examine the limits and reach of liberal policies and political, social, economic and agrarian issues that facilitated or hampered the application of these policies in Indian towns, against the backdrop of broader Liberal discursive forms and practices in Spanish America in general and in Mexico in particular.
