Description

Cautiverio y convivencia en la edad de Cervantes [Captivity and Coexistence in the Age of Cervantes] explores Spanish narratives of coexistence in Muslim and Native American lands, through the lens of captivity in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Far from engaging with the violence or trauma of confinement, the author studies the cognitive experience that results from abrupt immersion in a foreign culture, which leads to a revision of homogeneous and stereotypical perceptions of cultural, religious and ethnic differences, and ultimately undermines the perception of one’s own society as a stable world. In the Early Modern use of captivity narratives as critical instruments, Natalio Ohanna identifies a pluralistic conception that aims to transform the complex web of images, attitudes, beliefs, and practices with which the Spain of Cervantes dealt with the problem of difference between human groups.
