Conquista y Conversión

Universos semióticos, textualidad y legitimación de saberes en la América colonial

[Conquest and Conversion: Semiotic Universe, Textuality, and the Legitimization of Knowledge in Colonial America]

Ed. by Oesterreicher, Wulf / Schmidt-Riese, Roland

Series:Pluralisierung & Autorität 37

DE GRUYTER MOUTON

    Aims and Scope

    This volume examines the symbolic systems that governed America’s integration into the European weltanschauung, including Amerindian myths and religious beliefs, and concepts of Christian belief, as introduced and taught by the Europeans. This collection of essays presents a detailed examination of political, legal, theological, and historiographic problems associated with this process.

    El volumen se ocupa de la operatividad de los órdenes semióticos tanto autóctonos como traídos de Europa en la construcción de América en el imaginario occidental. La conversión de los indígenas fue clave en el proyecto de asimilar a los pueblos nativos. Paralelamente, la empresa colonial fue descrita y legitimada mediante la narración histórica. El volumen ilumina algunas parcelas de ese vasto entramado semiótico, textual y argumentativo.
