Colonialism in the Andes

Colonialism in the Andes

An Emplaced Perspective

Negotiated Settlements

This chapter provides an overview of the scope and approach of the book. It first outlines the historical span of the study, ranging from the period of autonomous rule during the Late Intermediate Period (A.D. 1000–1450) through the early colonial era (up to the early 17th century). It argues that an emplaced, local perspective of the everyday interactions and enduring features of landscape and the built environment allows a view of how colonizing ideologies, institutions, and practices were transformed as they came into articulation with Andean cultural postulates and practices of community and landscape. It then situates the work between colonial, postcolonial, and archaeological theoretical literatures on colonialism, arguing that a locally situated, trans-conquest perspective is critical to understanding how colonial rule was experienced as a continuous process across the Spanish invasion, while also moving beyond resistance frameworks and toward an understanding of the “resistance of culture” in colonial encounters. Finally, the chapter outlines the archaeological and ethnohistorical components of the study, as well as the GIS-based methodological framework for spatially integrating the two sources of data.
