This session probes the intimate multi-cultural relationships that developed in the Yucatán peninsula and the Isthmus of Panama during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, with particular attention to the contrasting impact of encomienda and slave trade of different origins. We seek to connect microanalysis with macro perspectives to invite analysis of global intertwinings, as well as comparisons with other regions where cultural exchange impacted families, households, and institutions, thus modulating processes of early globalization.
