Latin America & the African: The Peruvian Experience 1529-1650

Project an effort to study the roots of the radical experience in Peru so that the evolution of racial attitudes may be traced. ABSTRACT: Project an effort to study the roots of the radical experience in Peru so that the evolution of racial attitudes may be traced. Will study in depth Spanish attitudes toward the Indian and African need for Negro slave trade, scope and utilization of Negro labor in the colonial economy, methods of slave control, treatment and assimilation of the Negro and the Indian, using original slave price fluctuations (according to tribal origins, etc.), marriage licenses, assimilation attitudes, laws. Extensive archival research in Spain and Peru already completed. Problem of particular interest both for the Latin American specialist and for those who study comparative race relations since Peru was both an important component of the Spanish empire and one of the few genuinely tri-racial societies to emerge in the Western Hemisphere. Funds for PI and research assistant, summer salaries, clerical assistance, supplies, indirect costs.
