Within political geography. More than establishing a new agenda or creating new space for feminist and masculinist considerations within political geography, the impetus was for a recognition of the existence of political geographies which have been left off the traditional agenda. In the same way as feminist writers have been stressing the need to address formally ‘silent histories’ of women, the case has been put for ‘silent geographies’, or rather ‘silenced geographies’, of women and men that are not subsumed within the dominant typeset of state-centricity (Dalby, 1993).

For the first time in history, the Americas became a colonial extension of European empires. This situation served to shape the development of Central and South America through the colonial period, and beyond into the independence and post-independence periods. From the turn of the sixteenth century, indigenous groups became subordinated within spatial organisation and power relations embedded within the predominant imported European social, economic and territorial-administrative systems. Representing the New World The political geography of the conquest is explained not only through the medium of the chronicles of the day but in other forms of representation such as sculpture, painting and, importantly, maps.
