Richard Hunter, Geography Department, and Andrew Sluyter, Department of Geography and Anthropology at Louisiana State University, had their article published in the latest issue of Journal of Historical Geography. The article, “How Incipient Colonies Create Territory: The Textual Surveys of New Spain, 1520s-1620s,” explores the practices of early colonial land surveying to reveal how territory was created through negotiations among local actors, centralized state power and specific landscapes.
