Using the textbook Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean we read chapter 4, “Independence and Nation-Building.”

This material was for Peoples of Latin America and Caribbean 2021, after finishing the first unit with the chapter on “Conquest, Colonialism, Resistance.”

For the next class we moved on to Race and Ethnicity.

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
