Conocimiento y escritura coloniales en la obra del jesuita Alonso de Ovalle

Resultado de la investigación: Article

Resumen

This essay aims to contribute to the discussions about knowledge and power in the New World through the study of one of the most famous works in colonial chilean historiography: Alonso de Ovalle's Histórica relación del Reino de Chile (1646). I argue that knowledge about Chile is produced within two principles: the text's locus of enunciation and the use of sources of information or of authority. This issue leads into questioning the author's problematic status as he speaks about his homeland from Europe and for Europeans, presenting his familiar background as if unknown.
