11. Mexico-Peru

This web page continues the third section of the J Term 2019 ANTH 237 course on Latin America & the Caribbean. There were three readings:

  • Casey Walsh, “Statistics and Anthropology: The Mexican Case” (352-372)
  • Salomón Nahmad Sittón, “Mexico: Anthropology & the Nation State” (128-149)
  • Carlos Iván Degregori and Pablo Sandoval, “Peru: From Otherness to a Shared Diversity” (150-173)

For Mexico, the Walsh article on “Statistics” sets the historical stage for Nahmad Sittón’s more contemporary reflections. For Peru, there is a lot of related information in the chapter we read earlier by Seligmann on Peasant Studies and Agrarian Reform.
