Fuero is a very well known concept for historians on both sides of the Spanish World, meaning special statute or privilege. It could be applied to the Church (fuero eclesiástico), to nobility (mayorazgo) or to cities (fuero municipal). Spanish and American historiography usually takes for granted that when applied to provinces or larger territories, Fuero was strictly European (Fuero de AragónFuero de Navarra…). However, the complex process of legal miscegenation that followed the Castilian occupation of the New World produced some cases that Spanish and Spanish American political imagination interpreted also as provincial Fuero. That was the case of the Indian Province of Tlaxcala, whose inhabitants not surprisingly presented themselves as the Basques (Vizcaínos) of the New World.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies and the Katz Center for Mexican Studies at The University of Chicago.

Lunch will be provided for those who register in advance.
