Using 18th century portraits and casta paintings, Magali M. Carrera studies how race and identity were perceived and constructed in New Spain (Mexico). Imagining Identity in New Spain uses an interdisciplinary approach and effectively integrates art history, literary evidence, social history, and religious and legal texts.
