Abstract

Porcine Empires is an environmental history of the role of pigs in the Spanish colonization of the New World. By tracing the socio-cultural and environmental contexts of southwestern Spain, the island of La Gomera, and colonial Latin America, this thesis traces the cultivation of the early modern human-animal relationship between people and pigs in the Atlantic world.
