             analyzes three eighteenth-century sodomy cases in New Mexico
             to highlight the ways in which colonial authorities passed
             judgment on their subjects and the landscapes that they
             inhabited. Examining how ethnocentric outlooks shaped the
             ways in which Spanish colonizers interlinked sin and
             physical space illuminates the process by which colonial
             authorities made biased value judgments, deeming native
             peoples and indigenous spaces as sinful. The first case
             (1728) examines the denunciation and subsequent exoneration
             of a Spanish resident accused of sodomy. The second case
             (1731) highlights the tensions between spaces regarded as
             civilized and other areas removed from the purview of the
             Spanish state that colonizers viewed as morally suspect. The
             third case (1775) reveals how colonial authorities attempted
             to normalize local denizens’ sexual comportment in
             locations deemed asexual. By analyzing gender and sexuality
             alongside the environment, this essay problematizes
             descriptions of seemingly natural landscapes and elucidates
             the cultural construction behind pejorative tropes used to
             justify conquest.</jats:p>},
