Out of the Mouths of Slaves: Africanized Iberian Languages in Imperial Iberia

Friday, April 15
1:30–2:30 p.m.
Philips Wing, Magill Library

In this talk, Jones will examine cultural and literary representations of white appropriations of black African voices in Portuguese and Spanish texts from the 1500s through 1700s, a span of time when the composition and performance of Africanized Iberian languages were in vogue. A study in genre, performance, and a critique of ideology, this talk uses early modern and colonial literary and non-literary texts from Portugal, Spain, and their transoceanic colonial territories to make claims for and theorize the existence of the formation of African diasporic life and identity across the Luso-Hispanic imperial world.
