Eduardo Restrepo A dissertation submitted to the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the Department of Anthropology Chapel Hill 2008 Approved by: Arturo Escobar Marisol de la Cadena Lawrence Grossberg Walter Mignolo Peter Redfield
Eduardo Restrepo: Eventalizing Blackness in Colombia (Under de direction of Arturo Escobar) This dissertation illustrates from four concrete moments the relevance of eventalizing the analytic categories with which we usually think the past and present of  blackness: 1) the ethnicization of blackness at the end of last century where a anthropological and culturalist discourse prevails; 2) the medicalization and racialization of the society at the beginning of twentieth century when hygienic and biological assumptions prevail; 3) the national construction of a literate elite (
) and the first experts by the middle of the nineteenth century from the imaginary of the progress tied to the disciplination of labor and the scrutiny of wealth; and 4) the technologies of salvation for the slaves introduced to Cartagena of Indies deployed in the first half of seventeenth century from the Christian theopolitics. My argument consists in identifying these concrete problematizations to show their singularity and density in which they emerged and transformed through different articulations of blackness. Therefore, there is not adequate to subsume nor to collapse in analytic models, more or less sophisticated, those appeals to ‘race’ or to ‘ethnicity’ as  principles of historical intelligibility that cross all and each one of these articulations of difference. This dissertation is not about the conventional description of ‘cultures’ or ‘pasts’ from ‘the native’s point of view’; but, it is an eventalization of blackness that
iii refers to rethinking an object (or objects in plural) that has emerged in thought through specific games of truth associated with certain modalities of power.
