Description

Dr. Judith A. Carney and Dr. Lorelle Semley make up this panel. As individuals and groups migrate from one geographical area and settle in another, they make connections between the spaces they leave and the spaces to which they travel. . In these movements, they engage in processes of transculturation, selectively shedding some beliefs and practices, taking on new ones, and contributing the beliefs and practices that they bring to their new place and society. . These processes of change occur within unequal relationships of power. . This panel will examine the movement of Africans and their descendants around the Ibero-Atlantic world, with a particular focus on the processes of transculturation, or the diffusion and infusion of symbolic memories, political ideologies and everyday practices into American spaces, noting the particularities of experience defined by race, caste, gender, and calidad.

Dr. Chris Duvall moderates this second panel of the 2011 Richard E. Greenleaf Colonial Studies Conference: Africans and Their Descendants in the Early Modern Ibero-American World. It was a two-day, interdisciplinary conference which provided a forum for eight of the foremost scholars of the Afro-Ibero Atlantic world to join UNM faculty members to explore questions related to the negotiation of identity, place, difference and categorization within the Early Modern period. The dialogue which emerged from the conference built upon the rich history of colonial studies at the University of New Mexico. The conference was made possible by Dr. Richard E. Greenleaf's generous contribution and support from the LAII's US Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant.
