Abstract

LOPEZ-SANTAMARIA, Ramsés. FREEDOM AND PRIVATE WEALTH: A LEGAL STRATEGY AGAINST SLAVERY IN THE COLOMBIAN INSTITUTIONAL HISTORY (1780-1851). Vniversitas [online]. 2018, n.136, pp.115-136. ISSN 0041-9060.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/javeriana.vj136.lpej.

This research proposal encapsulates the interest from the last two years of a doctorate research project. To begin, it aims to deal with the problems in studying the history of the rights and particularly those related to the recognition of freedom and the access to ownership for the enslaved black community during a specific period. Such interest in history focuses on the significance of the slavery as an institution in the Colombian institutional life for many years –before and after the Independence– with all the aspects implied in the context of such an activity, not only legally but also economically and politically. Regarding the research method, this work is firstly intended as a documentary analysis of primary source references located mostly in two archives. First the Library of the ‘Colegio de Misiones de Popayán’ with its records from 18th century and second, the ‘Blacks and Slaves Catalogue’ of the General Archive of the Nation; and secondly, a review of the secondary sources who developed their work based on the primary sources, both in Colombia and abroad. Finally, a major conclusion is drawn that there were some contradictions in the instituting of the slavery during the period stated above. This will enable to break new grounds towards the identification of common threads appearing in the new readings derived from the tensions suggested by this document.
