History Workshop

“Why did you kill your baby?” Infanticide, Motherhood, and the Courts in Venezuela, 1811-1863

Dr. Reuben Zahler, UO History,
Friday, October 27, 10:00-11:30 am,
McKenzie Hall 375

In the Andean region of Venezuela, Professor Zahler uncovered a cache of court cases about infanticide that occurred shortly after Venezuela became an independent country. The defendants were overwhelmingly the infant’s mother — working class women of indigenous or mixed-race background. These cases offer a number of surprising insights into gender, race, moral codes, and how locals and the authorities sought to manage this most heinous of crimes.

Mayra Bottaro, assistant professor of Spanish, Department of Romance Languages, will offer opening remarks.
 
The anthology is preceded by an extensive introductory study (100 pages) that analyses the articulations of love, nation building, and narratives in the short stories. This anthology recuperates six representative short stories of the so-called sentimental romantic mode, which had been thus far overlooked by scholars and historians. These texts were originally published in journals, magazines, and newspapers in Bolivia and Peru, and this is their first modern edition.
