Race and Nation in Modern Latin America

Rethinking Race in Modern Argentina. Edited by Paulina Alberto and Eduardo Elena. New York: Cambridge University Press, ISBN: By Alexandre Emboaba Da Costa. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, By Elizabeth Hordge-Freeman.

Edited by Nancy P. At the same time, others have used Anderson's notion of "imagined communities" to describe the processes by which nineteenth- century or in the case of Cuba, twentieth-century elites and subalterns struggled over the terms of inclusion in the context of newly independent states. The authors in this volume undertake analyses of these as intertwined processes. The understanding that "race" and "nation" are mutually constituted is one of their common arguments. In several essays, attention to region and its relationship to nation adds a layer of complexity. In defiance of Vargas' efforts to create a nationalist "myth of racial democracy," in which all races were equally valuable contributors, a discourse emerged claiming Paulista superiority based on both its modernity and its racial purity in contrast to the rest of Brazil, depicted as backward and "other," "African" or "mulatto. Thus, even as she interrogates the categories, Weinstein demonstrates the salience of race and nation.

This article discusses gender and sexuality during the national period and the shift from women's history to the study of the social construction of both femininity and masculinity and of various forms of sexuality. Gender here is both a topic and a category of analysis. The discussion thus sheds much light on other aspects of—in this case, national—society, such as notions of nationality and citizenship, the nature of the modern state and law, populism, and revolutionary and feminist politics. Keywords: women's history , femininity , masculinity , female oppression , historiography , national society. Now is an ideal moment to reflect upon the accomplishments and future challenges of Latin American gender and sexuality history since Although it has been more noticeable since the late s, there has always been an ethnographic and historical tradition of gender and sexuality studies within the region. One only has to glance at the voluminous bibliography of pre works on Latin American women compiled by Meri Knaster and Lynn Stoner's subsequent bibliography to demonstrate the long-standing interest.

History of Latin America , history of the region from the pre-Columbian period and including colonization by the Spanish and Portuguese beginning in the 15th century, the 19th-century wars of independence, and developments to the end of the 20th century. Latin America is generally understood to consist of the entire continent of South America in addition to Mexico , Central America , and the islands of the Caribbean whose inhabitants speak a Romance language. The peoples of this large area shared the experience of conquest and colonization by the Spaniards and Portuguese from the late 15th through the 18th century as well as movements of independence from Spain and Portugal in the early 19th century. Even since independence, many of the various nations have experienced similar trends, and they have some awareness of a common heritage. However, there are also enormous differences between them. Not only do the people live in a large number of independent units, but the geography and climate of their countries vary immensely.

Understanding Latin American Beliefs about Racial Inequality1

There is no single system of races or ethnicities that covers all modern Latin America , and usage of labels may vary substantially. In spite of these differences, the construction of race in Latin America can be contrasted with concepts of race and ethnicity in the United States. The ethno-racial composition of modern-day Latin American nations combines diverse Amerindian populations, with influence from Iberian and other European colonizers, and equally diverse African groups brought to the Americas as slave labor, and also recent immigrant groups from all over the world.

Framing the themes and questions explored in the volume, the editors' introduction also provides an overview of the current state of the interdisciplinary literature on race and nation-state formation. Essays on the postindependence period in Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Panama, and Peru consider how popular and elite racial constructs have developed in relation to one another and to processes of nation building. Contributors also examine how ideas regarding racial and national identities have been gendered and ask how racialized constructions of nationhood have shaped and limited the citizenship rights of subordinated groups.

Так продолжалось несколько недель. За десертом в ночных ресторанах он задавал ей бесконечные вопросы. Где она изучала математику. Как она попала в АНБ. Как ей удалось стать столь привлекательной.

Сердце Беккера подпрыгнуло. - Очень хорошенькие? - повторил он с нарочитым немецким акцентом.

Она знала, что он перемножает цифры и намертво запоминает словари, не хуже ксерокса. - Таблица умножения, - сказал Беккер. При чем здесь таблица умножения? - подумала Сьюзан.  - Что он хочет этим сказать. - Четыре на шестнадцать, - повторил профессор.

Хотя большинство отделов АНБ работали в полном составе семь дней в неделю, по субботам в шифровалке было тихо.
