Nino Vallen (Berlin): Worldmaking and Distributive Struggle in the Early Modern Spanish Empire
This talk is about the stories that vassals and subjects of the Spanish crown told about themselves and the world to express what they believed were or ought to be their rightful privileges. Examining various narratological devices and rhetorical strategies, it will show what impact ideas of a ‘just' distributive process had on the development of various practices of world-making and in what ways these practices influenced concrete social realities, both in Spain and the Indies.
