WILDE, Guillermo. Indigenous Agency and the Turn towards the Global. hist.crit. [online]. 2018, n.69, pp.99-114. ISSN 0121-1617.

This article explores the problematic of the indigenous agency in the historical anthropology of Latin America. It aims to articulate it with the debates it raised by the so-called turn towards the global. The first part of the article focuses on the emergence of the indigenous agency and the reflection on the ways of non-Western historical consciousness. The second part deals with the reemergence of the imperial agent and its shift towards studies on Ibero-American borders. The third and final part, identifies some recent attempts to approach the global circulation of people, texts and objects, and the challenge presented to the treatment of indigenous agency. Studies with this approach reframe completely the problem of this agency. They also drive a theoretical reconceptualization of concepts such as culture and society, in continuity with discussions held several decades ago by micro-history and certain versions of socio-cultural anthropology.

Palavras-chave : global; culture; society; indigenous agency; border historical anthropology.
