Religion and Everyday Life

Using the textbook Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean, after reading about “Gender, Sexuality, Reproduction” we read chapter 7, “Religion and Everyday Life.”

Book image for this post is Electric Santería: Racial and Sexual Assemblages of Transnational Religion by Aisha Beliso-De Jesús.

This finished unit 2 of the course Peoples of Latin America and Caribbean 2021. We then moved on to the third and final unit with Food, Cuisine, and Cultural Expression.
