This lecture/conversation will try to approach the following questions:

  • Is there any sense in speaking of a Mexico 500 years ago as conquered by a Spain as a nation-state?
  • Can we speak of a conquest or of several conquests or of changes in economic and social paradigms of different societies?
  • What were the visions and reactions of the indigenous people regarding these changes and processes?
