REBAGLIATI, Lucas. ¿A benign slavery?: Historiography on the nature of Rio de la Plata slavery. Andes [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.2, pp.00-00. ISSN 1668-8090.

This paper discusses how historiography was shaped by the idea that in the Rio de la Plata would have prevailed a "benign slavery" compared with other regions in the same period. This hypothesis was formulated by the founding fathers of Argentine historiography and by various interpretative traditions throughout the twentieth century, framed within a general characterization of the Spanish legal system. It will be our aim to analyze the point of view and sources worked in these approaches, while accounting for the historiographical debates on the issues that were raised in international historiography. To conclude, we will describe the renewal of Afro-argentine studies that have been taking place since the 80’s and the current state of the debate, stressing the usefulness of a comparative approach could have to account for the different ways of integration of the African-descendants in the continent societies.

Palabras clave : Historiography; Benign Slavery; Exploitation; African-descendants; Río de la Plata.
