Jerome S. Handler

Uma morfologia dos quilombos nas Américas, séculos XVI-XIX
Florentino, Manolo;Amantino, Márcia;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702012000500014
Abstract: the article begins with the finding that studies on 'quilombos' in slave societies in the americas have been relatively anodyne, not rarely placing in one sole category ('quilombos', 'cumbes', 'palenques', 'mainels', etc.) structures that might encompass anywhere from less than ten runaways, and last just weeks or months, or - as in the case of palmares - bring together up to 11,000 'quilombolas' and endure for nearly a century. a similar conceptual anomaly is evident in the absence of taxonomies, which envision 'quilombos' as effectively historical structures, which might have been restricted merely to loose groups or have developed into self-sustaining communities capable of reproducing themselves economically and demographically for long periods in the americas.
Los límites morales de la compasión
Uribe Botero,ángela;
Estudios de Filosofía , 2008,
Abstract: the purpose of this article is to give reasons to defend the position which warns us against the moral risks of compassion. besides the argument that, in sustaining this position, appeals to the value of autonomy, i refer to the debate about the cognitive content of attitudes such as humiliation. references to this debate, along with some examples taken from colombian history and literature will serve the purpose of defining the links between the belief in the inferiority of some people and the paternalist, condescending and humiliating treatment that can be constitutive of compassion.
A busca inglesa pelo curso do Rio Níger: do problema geográfico à possess?o potencial
Gebara, Alexsander Lemos de Almeida;
História (S?o Paulo) , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-90742012000200008
Abstract: this paper analyzes a set of texts written during english expeditions in the region of the niger river between first trip of mungo park (1795) and the 1841 official british expedition, looking for the similarities and differences in representations over time. the period in question encompassed transformations in the atlantic context, including the end of the slave trade in england, and also assigns a change in the balance of forces on the coast and in the interior of west africa. thus, the paper aims to show how british ideas about slavery and the slave trade affect the dynamics of diplomatic representation and practices towards european societies near the course of the niger river. finally, the article also points to how the almost exclusively geographical concerns of the first trips gradually acquired the character of an interventionist inaugural address at the same time that the new material and technical conditions unbalanced the power relations in favor of england.

O direito e o avesso
Comparato, Fábio Konder;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142009000300002
Abstract: in every country, behind the official law composed of the constitution, statutes, rules edited by the executive branch, and legal precedents, there is also another concealed regulation, based on the structure of ruling powers within society and legitimized by social mentality. such duplicity of legal systems has always existed in brazil. apart from the official law, which follows valid civilization standards of countries that we consider to be culturally more advanced, there is a tacit law in force, whose role is to protect the interests of dominant social groups. this article illustrates this twofold reality of brazilian law with the historical cases of slavery and democracy. in order to change this social structure, whose appearance does not reflect effective reality, the author highlights the need for a wide and continual denunciation of its illegitimacy.

Abolición y persistencia de la esclavitud indígena en Chile Colonial: Estrategias esclavistas en la frontera Araucano-Mapuche
Obregón Iturra,Jimena Paz; Zavala Cepeda,José Manuel;
Memoria americana , 2009,
Abstract: for the araucano-mapuche indians of southern chile captured in battle during warfare, a system of legal slavery became one of the exceptions to the juridical statute for the vassals of the king extended to include the indian population of america since 1542. our work consists on a reflection on slavery and other forms of dependency and forceful work. synthetically, we consider the illegal slavery practices which prepared the ground to their legality since 1608, in spite of its precarious, shaky, and contradictory character, which persisted in such legislation until the beginning of the definite abolition process in 1674. based on the fragments of histories of life, it is in our particular interest to understand how the spaniards living in chile intended to perpetuate slavery de facto, even once its legality became banned. finally, after more than a century has elapsed, we will examine how some specific women and children destinies resemble slavery practices.
Raízes e rotas da terra: Forma??o de um território negro no sul do Brasil
Moura Mello,Marcelo;
Memoria americana , 2011,
Abstract: the text deals with the historical trajectory of the black rural community of cambará, in rio grande do sul, a state located in southern brazil, which shares borders with argentina and uruguay and it is based upon written and oral sources far from referring to a homogeneous process, the historical formation of this group covers a long period of time, involving the interaction of individuals from different ethnic groups. from this case, the objective is to conflate the analysis of strategies used by the predecessors of the community to ensure access to land in different contexts with two sets of discussions: those posed by the brazilian historiography about slavery and those arising from the emergence of new subjects of rights in brazil, the maroons - remanescents of quilombos.
