|Résumé de la thèse||
The research aims at providing a transnational landscape-centered account of the Triple Frontier Region (TFR) during and after the War of the Triple Alliance to understand how the war and subsequent settler-national projects shaped TFR's landscapes and political ecologies. My hypothesis is that national interest in controlling the region through the enactment of liberal models of land tenure and state-induced private colonization schemes accounted for the waning of indigenous autonomy, and played a major role in shaping present-day patterns of land inequality in the region.
