Where Caciques and Mapmakers Met: Border Making in Eighteenth-Century South America
February 17 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
The American Geographical Society Library in collaboration with the UWM Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies present Jeffrey Erbig, Assistant Professor in Latin American and Latino Studies at UC-Santa Cruz, talking about the subject of his recent book, Where Caciques and Mapmakers Met: Border Making in Eighteenth-Century South America.
Drawing upon manuscripts from over two dozen archives in seven countries, Erbig traces on-the-ground interactions between Ibero-American colonists, Jesuit and Guarani mission dwellers, and autonomous Indigenous peoples as they responded to ever-changing notions of territorial possession.
