ROSETTI, Mariana Inés. Servando Teresa de Mier and the Writing of the History of the Revolution: Political Uses of Criollismo. Secuencia [online]. 2021, n.109, e1730.  Epub Mar 05, 2021. ISSN 2395-8464.

In this article, we explore the writing devices Servando Teresa de Mier proposed and used in his book Historia de la revolución de la Nueva España (1813), designed to construct an American narrative plot that edited documents and peninsular perspectives on the capacity for American political representation. Rather than defending an institutional revolution against another popular, insurgent one, Mier’s merit lay in proposing and inventing an American archive or collective memory that linked the time of the Spanish conquest with the dizzying political times that began in 1808 and expanded this discourse to encompass all the “unprotected” sectors of America.

Keywords : Servando Teresa de Mier; Historia de la revolución de Nueva España; Novo-Hispanic emancipation; criollismo; historical discourse.
