Mining Language

Allison Margaret Bigelow

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter reviews the major methodological and theoretical approaches used in Mining Language, at once concluding the book and gesturing toward future research directions in the fields of history of colonial science and technology and Indigenous Studies. Specifically, it reflects on the relationship between history and literary studies within these intersecting fields. By reflecting on what colonial archives say and do not say, the conclusion argues for the importance of research ethics and methods that confront, acknowledge, and respond to historical silences.

Keywords:   History of Mining, History of Science, Research Methods, Spanish Empire, Colonial Americas, Indigenous Studies, Critical Archival Studies
