Description: The purpose of this multi-panel, daylong conference is to study the massive relocation of indigenous populations by the Spanish crown at the end of the 16th and beginning of the 17th centuries, generally known as the reducciones or congregaciones de Indios in the Americas. This conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group of archaeologists, historians, art historians, demographers and political scientists to discuss new theoretical approaches and methodological tools that can be brought to bear on the study of one of the most significant events for the surviving indigenous population in the colonial era. Most of the discussion will geographically focus on South-Central Mexico. Conference participants will offer papers that reflect on the themes of epidemics and demographic collapse, ethnic violence and resistance, territorial and urban reorganizations, Colonial politics and intrigue, and the ongoing relevance to the living descendants in contemporary Mexico.
