This was the web page for the third class of the J Term 2019 ANTH 237 course Peoples & Cultures of Latin America. There were two readings:

  • Restall, Seven Myths, 64-130
  • Penelope Harvey, “Language States” (193-213)

The Harvey chapter on “Language States” was to complement Restall’s fifth myth, “The Myth of (Mis)Communication.”

We also watched The Great Inca Rebellion in class.
