MONDRAGON, Silvina Andrea. Medieval Fears in American Lands: The Circulation of a Possible Image of America from Diego de Ocaña’s Chronicle. Hist. graf [online]. 2020, n.54, pp.53-78.  Epub 06-Fev-2020. ISSN 1405-0927.

From the chronicle of the trip that Fray Diego de Ocaña made between 1599 and 1605 throughout South America, I seek to analyze the description that the monk made of the different cultural spaces where he traveled for five years and that questioned his own mental representations. The objective is to trace the description of America and of the American made by Ocaña based on the ways the spaces were “made visible” and “assumed" by him, weighing his misunderstanding of the unknown and the meanings he gave to the observed. The final interest is to analyze the way in which the circulation and appropriation of material and immaterial symbols, which characters such as those displayed by Ocaña displayed, ended up forming sui generis American identities, despite the geographical origin of the observers.
