This web page contains student comments for a 2019 class on Race in the Americas. There were two readings:
- Sidney Mintz, Three Ancient Colonies, 44-87
- Peter Wade, “Race in Latin America” in A Companion to Latin American Anthropology
For a related class from 2021, see Race and Ethnicity using the textbook Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean:
This class was part of the 2019 course outline for Peoples & Cultures of Latin America and see Teaching Latin America 2019 for course reflections. The next class was on Gender.
The larger series includes:
- The most recent Latin America & Caribbean Anthropology 2021 which blogs through the second edition of The Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean by Harry Sanabria.
- The 2016 Teaching Latin America and Caribbean Anthropology and the Student Projects.
- Anthropologists Studying Immigration in the United States (2013).
- The first post that launched the series, from 2012: Teaching: Latin America & Caribbean.
These posts are all cataloged in the Latin America index tag for the site, which also includes related blog-posts.
For fall 2021, I’ll be teaching a new first-year seminar course called Upstate Latinx using a book titled Latina/o Studies. Hopefully this course will take the idea of “race in the Americas” in new directions.
