Artículo de revistaGunnardóttir, Ellen  The Convent of Santa Clara, the Elite and Social Change in Eighteenth Century Querétaro. [Trad. El Convento de Santa Clara, la elite y el Cambio Social en Querétaro en el Siglo XVIII ] Journal of Latin American Studies, 2001 vol. 33 no. 2 p. 257-290. Palabras claves:



This article focuses on the changes that occurred within Querétaro's elite from the late Habsburg to the high Bourbon period in colonial Mexico from the perspective of its relationship to the convent of Santa Clara. It explores how creole elite families of landed background with firm roots in the early seventeenth century, tied together through marriage, entrepreneurship and membership in Santa Clara were slowly pushed out of the city's economic and administrative circles by a new Bourbon elite which broke with the social strategies of the past by not sheltering its daughters in the city's most opulent convent.
