The Oxford History of Historical Writing

Juan Maiguashca

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers an overview of the historiography of Spanish South America (SSA) in the 19th century and the first half of the 20th. It does not treat the nine South American countries individually but takes the region as a whole as the unit of analysis. The chapter also discusses the part of the Americas where an intellectual common market, ‘la república de las letras’, grew in size and complexity, interchanging ideas and intellectual products that took place during the late colonial period. After independence, the density of intellectual exchanges increased and dealt with political, military, economic, literary, and most especially historiographical subjects.

Keywords:   historiography, Spanish South America, SSA, la república de las letras, Americas, colonial period, historiographical
