The Royal Commentaries of the Incas or Comentarios reales is the best-known history of the Incas and a pivotal work of Latin American literature. The author of this work, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616), consulted several Spanish chronicles and classical sources in writing his account of the Incan dynasty and the Spanish conquest of Peru. However, his history was also based on testimonies from Quechua-speaking relatives and friends, and on his own experience as a native of Cuzco and a noble mestizo.The year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of this foundational text. This conference will examine the diverse interpretations that critics of Inca Garcilaso de la Vega's Comentarios reales have carried out since the princeps edition of the first part of the book in 1609. In exploring the most important critical approaches to the Comentarios reales, the conference will also reflect upon the dynamics of ethnic, national and continental identity that have informed those readings, and suggest some of the new directions that studies on Inca Garcilaso and identity politics in Latin America may take in future years.
