Cult Crossbreeding

Cultural Crossbreeding and Interethnic Relations in Spanish American Societies

This course will analyze the meeting of Spanish American cultures and civilizations, and the processes of synthesis and crossbreeding among diverse ethnic groups and cultures, from a historical-anthropological perspective. We will pay special attention to the ethno-racial criteria that were used as classifiable categories, their repercussions in contemporary societies, as well as phenomenons of religious syncretism and cultural synthesis in its diverse manifestations. In conjunction with classroom lectures, there will be class discussions on anthropological and literary texts from authors such as Carpentier, Nicolás Guillén, Nancy Morejón, Rojas González, and Ciro Alegría, among others.
