Abstract:

The article proposes to rethink the landscape of the early modern archive of the Iberian world from a queer perspective. It addresses recent trends that explore the possibilities that rethinking queerness, in particular in relation to the archive, has for reconsidering the trajectory of historical analysis. It argues that the structure of the archive has sometimes obscured the ambiguous sex and gender of some individuals in the early modern Iberian world.
