Historias 55 – Lina Del Castillo

“There are no colonial legacies in Spanish America. Yet, this book is about them.”

And so begins Dr. Lina Del Castillo‘s fascinating book Crafting a Republic for the World: Scientific, Geographic, and Historiographical Inventions of Colombia that traces the efforts to build a republican nation in a hostile world of monarchies and empires.

Renata caught up with Lina to explore it further.

Happy listening.
