Transatlantic Studies

This article examines the presence and absence, visibility and invisibility, of Africa from formulations of the trans-Atlantic focused on Latin America and the Caribbean. It critiques a long naturalised Ibero-American loop that tends to sidestep triangular and rhizomatic configurations and argues, amongst other things, that Spain’s colonization of the Americas finds in Africa both its prologue and its long, still ongoing, epilogue.

Keywords:   Africa, Slave trade, Equatorial Guinea, Colonialism, Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, "El Desastre"
