African Diaspora in Early Modern Andalusia: Imprints and sources for the Study of African influence in Andalusian Culture

 

Between the 15th and 18th centuries, around 700,000 and 800,000 sub-Saharan Africans were brought to the Iberian Peninsula to work as slaves. Andalusia had several ports of entry for the enslaved population, such as Seville and Cadiz, so the holding of slaves in the South was that frequent, that in the 16th century most social classes could afford this labor force.
This is an issue that has always been silenced by the hegemonic historical discourse, but researchers have started to call the attention about this African presence in Spain since the middle of the 20th century. However, now that this presence is clear, it should be considered their agency and how they influenced and merged with the rest of social communities. In this regard, there are many African traces in Andalusian culture that can serve as starting point for the Ethnohistoric study of this population in Early Modern Andalusia: how they acted, reacted and participated in popular events; how they integrated religion and for what purpose, or what did they claimed and how, are questions that could be solved through the study of these sources, which I will show in my talk.
