Silverblatt, Irene [WorldCat Identities]

Heavily influenced by Marxist anthropology and by debates about the social construction of gender, she examines religious and gender ideologies in the Andes prior to the Inca conquest, during their short reignand after the coming of the Spanish. Though the pre-Inca period is relatively opaque Silverblatt argues that the sexes were relatively equal. Men’s and women’s work, men’s and women’s religion each upheld a portion of the universe.

Women inherited from women, worshipped female silgerblatt and directed their cults; men inherited from men, and ruled cults whose gods were irfne.

Gender was the dominant screen through which these people viewed life – and both sides could play.

The Incas shared this gender-defined worldview, but used it to justify their conquest and control. They worshipped Viracocha, whom they claimed as the an-drogynous pro-genitor of Sun and Moon, respectively the ancestors of men and women. Peru and the colonial origins of the civilized world by Irene Silverblatt Book 17 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Trying to understand how “civilized” people could embrace fascism, Hannah Arendt searched for a precedent in modern Western history.

She found it in nineteenth-century colonialism, with its mix of bureaucratic rule, racial superiority, and appeals to rationality. Modern Inquisitions takes Arendt’s insights about the barbaric underside of Western civilization and moves them back to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when Spanish colonialism dominated the globe.

Irene Silverblatt describes how the modern world developed in tandem with Spanish imperialism and argues that key characteristics of the modern state are evident in the workings of the Inquisition. Her analysis of the tribunal’s persecution of women and men in colonial Peru illuminates modernity’s intricate “dance of bureaucracy and race.

Early missionaries preached about world history and about the races and nations that inhabited the globe; Inquisitors, able bureaucrats, defined who was a legitimate Spaniard as they executed heretics for “reasons of state”; the “stained blood” of Indians, blacks, and descendants of Jews and Moors was said to cause their deficient character; and native Peruvians began to call themselves Indian.

Moon, sun, and devil: Silverlbatt and colonial transformations of Andean gender relations by Irene Silverblatt Book 8 editions published between and in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide. As Imperial Subjects demonstrates, from the early years of Spanish and Portuguese rule, understandings of race and ethnicity were fluid. In this collection, historians offer nuanced interpretations of identity as they investigate how Iberian settlers, African slaves, Native Americans, and their multi-ethnic progeny understood who they were as individuals, as members of various communities, and as silverbllatt subjects.

The contributors’ explorations of the relationship irsne colonial ideologies of difference and the identities historical actors presented span the entire colonial period and even beyond: Silverblztt volume includes essays on the major colonial centres of Mexico, Peru, and Brazil, as well as the Caribbean basin and the imperial borderlands.

Whether analyzing cases in which the Inquisition found that the individuals before it were ‘legally’ Indians and thus exempt from prosecution, or considering late-eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century petitions for declarations of whiteness entitling the mixed-race recipients to legal and social benefits enjoyed by whites, the book’s contributors approach the question of identity by examining interactions between imperial subjects and colonial institutions.

Colonial mandates, rulings, and legislation worked in conjunction with the actual exercise and negotiation of power between individual officials irend an array of social actors engaged in countless brief interactions. Identities emerged out of the interplay between internalized understandings of self and group association and externalized social norms and categories.


In sleep the world is yours: The circulation of children: Leinaweaver explores “child circulation,” informal arrangements in which indigenous Andean children are sent by their parents to live in other households. At first glance, child circulation appears tantamount to child abandonment. When seen in silverbpatt light, the practice is a violation of international norms regarding children’s rights, guidelines that the Peruvian state relies on in regulating legal adoptions.

Irene Silverblatt: A Living Document

Leinaweaver demonstrates that such an understanding of the practice is simplistic and misleading. Her in-depth ethnographic analysis reveals child circulation to be a meaningful, pragmatic social practice for poor and indigenous Irens, a flexible system of kinship that has likely been part of Andean lives for centuries.

Child circulation may be initiated because parents cannot care for their children, because a childless elder wants company, or because it gives a young person the opportunity eilverblatt gain needed skills. She describes how child circulation is intimately linked to survival in the city, which has had to withstand colonialism, economic isolation, and the devastating civil silverbllatt unleashed by the Shining Path.

She relates child circulation to international laws and norms regarding children’s rights, adoptions, and orphans, and to Peru’s history of racial conflict and violence. Given that history, Leinaweaver maintains that it is not surprising that child circulation, a practice associated with Peru’s impoverished indigenous community, is alternately ignored, tolerated, or condemned by the state.
