The Production of Space on Eighteenth-Century Hispaniola
Chapter 1 examines mapping practices in colonial Hispaniola, focusing specifically on how historical actors manipulated allegiance to one European power or the other, playing Saint-Domingue off Santo Domingo. The chapter uses border theory and studies of frontier relations to argue that shifting allegiances along the colonial border meant that the border could never be consolidated or represent the hegemony of European control over the region.
