The Royal Road of the Interior in New Spain: Indigenous Commerce and Political Action (Book Section)
Title: The Royal Road of the Interior in New Spain: Indigenous Commerce and Political Action
Author: Tatiana Seijas
Editor: Cynthia Radding
Editor: Danna A. Levin Rojo
Abstract: The chapter focuses on the royal road of the interior that linked Central Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley to highlight the indigenous origins of its pathways and to showcase the economic and political agency exerted by native peoples. Native communities located on the royal road and its vicinity had unique access to commercial opportunities. Indigenous artisans traveled to and along the road to find a market for their products. Farmers similarly relied on a steady stream of travelers seeking food and shelter to buy their surplus corn and other products to make some gains. Indian guides found paying customers who required their services to find their way from one stop along the road to the next settlement. The historiography on royal roads in New Spain has primarily focused on their connection to the Spanish colonial economy. This chapter aims to shift the narrative by illustrating how a number of indigenous communities used the routes for their own purposes.

Remembering the Medieval Present: Generative Uses of England’s Pre-Conquest Past, 10th to 15th Centuries (Book)
Title: Remembering the Medieval Present: Generative Uses of England’s Pre-Conquest Past, 10th to 15th Centuries
Editor: Jay P. Gates
Editor: Brian O'Camb
Abstract: This volume of essays focuses on how individuals living in the late tenth through fifteenth centuries engaged with the authorizing culture of the Anglo-Saxons. Drawing from a reservoir of undertreated early English documents and texts, each contributor shows how individual poets, ecclesiasts, legists, and institutions claimed Anglo-Saxon predecessors for rhetorical purposes in response to social, cultural, and linguistic change. Contributors trouble simple definitions of identity and period, exploring how medieval authors looked to earlier periods of history to define social identities and make claims for their present moment based on the political fiction of an imagined community of a single, distinct nation unified in identity by descent and religion.
