5. Afro-Latin

This web page began the second section of the J Term 2019 ANTH 237 course on Latin America & the Caribbean. There were two readings:

  • Mintz, Three Ancient Colonies, 1-43
  • Jaime Arocha and Adriana Maya, “Afro-Latin American Peoples” (399-425)

We also watched part of the film Smile Orange as a way of exploring the idea of Exophilia (Carvalho in Arocha and Maya, 405). This also leads us into our next class on Jamaica and Race in Latin America.
