Publicado el libro "Firsting in the Early-Modern Atlantic World", editado, en inglés, por Lauren Beck, en el que ha contribuido Manuel Lucena Giraldo (IH, CCHS-CSIC) como autor del capítulo titulado The Last of the First? Madness and the Jungle in the Chronicles of the Indies: Lope de Aguirre and His Writing.

For centuries, historians have narrated the arrival of Europeans using terminology (discovery, invasion, conquest, and colonization) that emphasizes their agency and disempowers that of Native Americans. This book explores firsting, a discourse that privileges European and settler-colonial presence, movements, knowledges, and experiences as a technology of colonization in the early modern Atlantic world, 1492-1900. It exposes how textual culture has ensured that Euro-settlers dominate Native Americans, while detailing misrepresentations of Indigenous peoples as unmodern and proposing how the western world can be un-firsted in scholarship on this time and place.
