Missionary Knowledge in the Colonial Borderlands of Iberian Empires. Impositions, Appropriations, Adaptations

Dates:
  • Wed 29 Apr 2020 17.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-04-29 17:00 2020-04-29 18:00 Europe/Paris Missionary Knowledge in the Colonial Borderlands of Iberian Empires. Impositions, Appropriations, Adaptations

In the framework of the HEC Department Colloquia

Since the 16th century, catholic missionaries produced information about the indigenous peoples of the world and published reports that circulated especially in Europe. These reports were neither completely objective descriptions of the field nor just propaganda. In this presentation, I explore the complexities of missionary knowledge recovering its multifaceted dimension. I will focus on the tension this knowledge raised between the universalistic orientation of the Christian project and the concrete description of the local traditions.
