From Moors to Mestizos: The Iberian Roots of Ethnicity in the New World

Through an examination of legal documents in both medieval Iberia and early colonial Peru, as well as the contestation of legal codes by subject Muslims, Jews, and Indians, my project examines the links between the production of judicial differences and identity in the Old and New Worlds. This analysis provides a foundation for understanding the creating of ethnic differences in early colonial Latin America and especially for consideration of the new categories of in-between status, mudéjares (Muslim converts of Iberia) and meztisos (those of mixed Spanish-Indian heritage in Latin America).
