In the historiography of the seventeenth-century Spanish Empire, Manila figures prominently as both a commercial entrepôt and as a site of ethnic conflict. This article examines the less-studied social processes of migration, settlement, and mestizaje that laid the foundation for Manila’s prosperity as well as its global diversity. It examines Spanish efforts to segregate and manage ethnic diversity in urban and domestic spaces, everyday cosmopolitanism and mestizaje, and the ways in which unresolved tensions between pluralism and exclusivism structured interethnic violence. Early Modern Manila lived according to a volatile and often begrudging convivencia that was grounded in cross-cultural interactions that, no matter how grave the crisis, underwrote the Manila’s prosperity and social composition throughout the seventeenth century.
