(p.90) Chapter 3 Modern Space
Beyond the Walled City

Guadalupe García

University of California Press

Chapter 3 explores the human dimensions of colonial urban policies as it foregrounds the ways in which modernization was implemented across the extramuros. By the middle of the nineteenth century, new roads, paseos (promenades), and other urban structures allowed prominent residents to reimagine the once “uncivilized” area as a space of Spanish advancement. These spatial and infrastructural changes are framed within a discussion of how race and blackness were erased from existing spaces and intimately connected to urban change.
