In this study, Morales analyses a variety of narratives-dictionaries, legal documents, conversion manuals, historical writings, literary accounts and chronicles-through the lens of inebriation imagery. Employing literary analysis and postcolonial theory, she evaluates the impact of representations of drinking and inebriation in the Spanish project of conquest and colonization, and the production of counter-narratives intended to defend the political position of indigenous peoples in the Andean region.
