Abstract


In Rumores y Sensibilidades en Venezuela Colonial: Cuando de historia cultural se trata, Frédérique Langue offers six essays exploring the methodology of cultural history, the role of rumor in elite society, and patrician anxieties regarding shifting race, class, and gender dynamics in late colonial Caracas. Broadly, the essays are a call to apply cultural history (or what Langue refers to more specifically as the historia de mentalidades) to a range of topics in Venezuelan history.
