Race & Ethnicity

Using the textbook Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean for Peoples of Latin America and Caribbean 2021, after reading about “Independence and Nation-Building” we read chapter 5, “Cultural Politics of Race and Ethnicity.”

Of course, as we now know, race and ethnicity are always going to be a part of nation-building. (Book image: Degrees of Mixture, Degrees of Freedom: Genomics, Multiculturalism, and Race in Latin America by Peter Wade.)

After this class it was on to Gender, Sexuality, Reproduction.

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.
