Labor under the Sun and the Son, Sep 9

4 hours 47 min ago
How did the materiality of social relations inform strategies of resistance by coerced laborers in the Andean village of Pomacocha? Pomacocha was intensely affected by both Inka and Spanish colonialism. It began as a transplanted colony of agriculturalists to supply food for the nearby Inka palace and the Inka provincial capital of Vilcashuaman. After the Spanish conquest, the agricultural settlement at Pomacocha was abandoned. Later, a hacienda-obraje was established and a new native community sprang up around it. The area became a politically and economically important zone for the Spaniards. The main focus of this talk is the late colonial period (18th to early 19th centuries), a time of general upheaval in the Andes. However, in order to understand and contextualize the impact of Spanish colonialism in Pomacocha, I analyze the long-term evolution of strategies of control and resistance, starting with the Inka period. Pomacocha is an ideal case study to compare Inka and Spanish colonialism, because imperial political and economic policies penetrated deeply into Pomacocha under both regimes. Pomacocha provides rare insight into the lives of the people whose labor sustained the colonial regimes.
