Verdesio read the key texts relating to the struggles for possession of River Plate’s northern shore — present-day Uruguay. He probes them for traces of conflicts in meaning and the agency of Amerindians, gauchos, Africans, and women — the subjected peoples that the texts try to silence.

The narrators, speaking for their culture, assume the role of knowing subject, repressing all other voices, epistemologies, and acts of resistance. Verdesio’s tasks are to listen for those that the Europeans represented as an unintelligible Other, to draw them into the foreground, and to decolonize their histories. By unpacking these texts, Verdesio shows that from the European point of view, the colonial encounter draws the New World into historical time and ushers in a new concept of knowledge.

Forgotten Conquests lays bare the discursive strategies that generated the founding texts of Latin American history and engulfed vervesio subjected peoples in silence for years.
