Internal colonialism or settler colonialism? Tim Bowman, ‘Negotiating Conquest: Internal Colonialism and Shared Histories in the South Texas Borderlands’, Western Historical Quarterly, 46, 3, 2015, pp. 335-353
Abstract: This essay conceptualizes the post-1848 South Texas borderlands through the internal colonial model. South Texas Mexicans, rather than being the passive victims of domination by a colonial power, actively negotiated their places within the South Texas internal colony, similar to colonized peoples in formal colonial settings throughout world history.
