Archaeology of Culture Contact and Colonialism in Spanish and Portuguese America contributes to disrupt the old grand narrative of cultural contact and colonialism in Spanish and Portuguese America in a wide and complete sense. This edited volume aims at exploring contact archaeology in the modern era. Archaeology has been exploring the interaction of peoples and cultures from early times, but only in the last few decades have cultural contact and material world been recognized as crucial elements to understanding colonialism and the emergence of modernity. Modern colonialism studies pose questions in need of broader answers. This volume explores these answers in Spanish and Portuguese America, comprising present-day Latin America and formerly Spanish territories now part of the United States. The volume addresses studies of the particular features of Spanish-Portuguese colonialism, as well as the specificities of Iberian colonization, including hybridism, religious novelties, medieval and modern social features, all mixed in a variety of ways unique and so different from other areas, particularly the Anglo-Saxon colonial thrust. Cultural contact studies offer a particularly in-depth picture of the uniqueness of Latin America in terms of its cultural mixture. This volume particularly highlights local histories, revealing novelty, diversity, and creativity in the conformation of the new colonial realities, as well as presenting Latin America as a multicultural arena, with astonishing heterogeneity in thoughts, experiences, practices, and material worlds.

  • Chapter 7. Cultural Creativity, Rebellions, and Comparative Questions for Afro-Brazilian Archaeology Christopher C. Fennell
  • Chapter 8. Marronage and the Dialectics of Spatial Sovereignty in Colonial Jamaica Kristen R. Fellows and James A. Delle.
This edited volume aims at exploring a most relevant but somewhat neglected subject in archaeological studies, especially within Latin America: maroons and runaway settlements. Scholarship on runaways is well established and prolific in ethnology, anthropology and history, but it is still in its infancy in archaeology. A small body of archaeological literature on maroons exists for other regions, but no single volume discusses the subject in depth, including diverse eras and geographical areas within Latin American contexts. Thus, a central aim of the volume is to gather together some of the most active, Latin American maroon archaeologists in a single volume. This volume will thus become an important reference book on the subject and will also foster further archaeology research on maroon settlements. The introduction and comments by senior scholars provide a wide-ranging and comprehensive analysis of runaway archaeology that will help to indicate the global importance of this research.

A steadily growing repository containing a previously unavailable subset of Princeton's Latin American Ephemera Collection as well as newly acquired materials being digitized and added on an ongoing basis. The bulk of the ephemera currently found in the Digital Archive of Latin American and Caribbean Ephemera was originally created around the turn of the 20th century and after, with some originating as recently as within the last year. The formats or genre most commonly included are pamphlets, flyers, leaflets, brochures, posters, stickers, and postcards. These items were originally created by a wide array of social activists, non-governmental organizations, government agencies, political parties, public policy think tanks, and other types of organizations in order to publicize their views, positions, agendas, policies, events, and activities. The vast majority are rare, hard-to-find primary sources unavailable elsewhere.

"Although the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement to address global climate change, has been regarded by many as an unsuccessful treaty both politically and environmentally, it stands as one of the worlds few truly global agreements. Why did such a diverse group of countries decide to sign and/or ratify the treaty? Why did they choose to do so at different times and in different ways? What explains their foreign policy behavior? Amy Below's book builds off the increasing significance of climate change and uses the Kyoto Protocol as a case study to analyze foreign policy decision making in Latin America. Below's study takes a regional perspective in order to examine why countries in Latin America made disparate foreign policy choices when they were faced with the same decision. The book looks at the decisions in Argentina, Mexico, and Venezuela via a process-tracing method. Below uses information obtained from primary and secondary documents and elite interviews to help reconstruct the processes, and augments her reconstruction with a content analysis of Conference of the Parties speeches by presidents and country delegates. The book complies with convention in the field by arguing that systemic, national and individual-level factors simultaneously impact foreign policy decisions, but makes the additional claim that role theory most accurately accounts for relationships between variables. Role Theory and Environmental Foreign Policy in Latin America considers a variety of factors on individual, national, and international levels of analysis, and show that the foreign policy decisions are best viewed through the prism of role theory. The book also draws conclusions about the value of role theory in general and about environmental foreign policy decisions in developing countries, which will be of value to both policy-makers and academics"-- Provided by publisher.

  • 2. The FTAA Negotiations: Context and History
  • 3. The FTAA Negotiations: Context and History
  • 4. Venezuela and the Evolution of the FTAA
  • 5. Brazil and the FTAA Negotiations.
"The book explores how the collapse of the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) negotiations in 2005 was rooted in a "crisis of authority" with respect to the leadership of the United States in the Americas. This "crisis of authority" was prompted by growing opposition in the Americas to the neo-liberal reforms that had been promoted by Washington since the 1980s. Marcel Nelson demonstrates how the FTAA became the focal point of this opposition from a growing chorus of leftist heads of state in Latin America to the detriment of the negotiations. A neo-Gramscian theoretical framework will be used to frame the manner in which the "crisis of authority" came to the fore in the states of the Americas and in the institutional structure established to negotiate the FTAA.

La condition juridique du métis en Nouvelle-Espagne au XVIe siècle -- La forge instable d'une domination. Les Doria, Gênes et le gouvernement castillan (1560-1606) -- Commerce transatlantique et commerçants étrangers dans le Pérou colonial (1740-1780) -- Conflits, altérité et création de récits -- Choc et échange épidémiologique: Indiens et Espagnols au Mexique (1520-1596) -- Mots, actes, hommes et machines de guerre. Une vision aztèque de la conquête du Mexique -- Conquistadores et Amérindiens dans la collection des Grands Voyages -- La prise d'armes contre l'invasion française de 1794 dans les Pyrénées aragonaises et navarraises -- La poésie féminine mapuche actuelle au Chili ou comment dénoncer l'exclusion -- Utopies bohèmes dans la littérature. Entre intégration codée et marginalisation (fin XIXe siècle-début XXe siècle).
"Dans le cadre des rapports entre identités et territoires, les onze contributions de ce volume explorent les relations de l'Espagne avec les composantes de son empire, comme celles entretenues avec ses alliés et ses ennemis. Ces textes abordent diversement la question des stratégies et des équilibres socio-ethniques élaborés par les normes gouvernementales, les pratiques des groupes et des individus, qui facilitent ou contraignent l'action. Loin des images et des récits que véhicule la légende noire à l'égard de l'Espagne et des Espagnols, les analyses produites lesquelles invitent à considérer ensemble conflits et coopérations valorisent la variété et la richesse des dynamiques relationnelles visant à éviter situations de blocage et exclusion."--P.

"Latin America since Independence offers an innovative and accessible approach to Latin American history. Short, thematic chapters, including relevant primary documents, introduce students to historical issues in comparative context across the region. A highly interactive companion website supports the book with extensive resources for instructors and students. This thoroughly updated edition, brings the story up to the present, with revised chapters, additional new primary sources, and expanded historiography"-- Provided by publisher.
"What is Latin America, after all? While histories of the 'other' Americas often link disparate histories through revolutionary or tragic narratives, Latin America since Independence begins with the assumption that our efforts to imagine a common past for nearly thirty countries are deeply problematic. Without losing sight of chronology or regional trends, this text offers glimpses of the Latin American past through carefully selected stories. Each chapter introduces students to a specific historical issue, which in turn raises questions about the history of the Americas as a whole. Key themes include:Race and Citizenship Inequality and Economic Development Politics and Rights Social and Cultural Movements Globalization Violence and Civil Society The short, thematic chapters are bolstered by the inclusion of relevant primary documents--many translated for the first time--including advertisements and posters, song lyrics, political speeches, government documents, and more. Each chapter also includes timelines highlighting important dates and suggestions for further reading. Richly informative and highly readable, Latin America since Independence provides compelling accounts of this region's past and present. This second edition brings the story up to the present, with revised chapters, new primary documents and images, and a new 'At A Glance' feature that uses a selection of maps and tables to illuminate key issues like the economy, the environment, and demographics.For additional information and classroom resources please visit the Latin America since Independence companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/dawson"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Indigenous peoples' rights and the law in Latin America / Rachel Sieder
  • The panorama of pluralist constitutionalism : from multiculturalism to decolonization / Raquel Z. Yrigoyen Fajardo
  • Autonomy and subsidiarity : the inter-American system of human rights vs. national justice systems / Victor Abramovich
  • Freedom of expression in the Americas : persistent problems and emerging challenges / Catalina Botero Marino
  • Inter-American constitutionalism : the interaction between human rights and progressive constitutional law in Latin America / Jorge Contesse
  • Judicial review and rights protection in Latin America : the debate on the regionalization of activism / Francisca Pou Giménez
  • Citizen insecurity and human rights : toward the deconstruction of the security discourse and a new criminal law / Ramiro Ávila Santamaria.
Over the past two decades, legal thought and practice in Latin America has changed dramatically: new constitutions or constitutional reforms have marked a widespread transition to democracy, fundamental institutional innovations have been introduced, and processes of globalization have had profound impacts on Latin American law. Law and Society in Latin America: A New Map offers the first systematic assessment by leading Latin American legal scholars of the momentous legal and political transformations in the region. Together with the liberalization of national economies, there has been an intensive importation of legal ideas and institutions - from the commercial and financial regulations promoted by the World Bank and World Trade Organization, to the adversarial criminal justice system inspired by the United States. Meanwhile, the globalization of human rights has had a fundamental impact - as demonstrated by the multiplication of laws, institutions, and public debates about the rights of groups that historically faced discrimination, and about the punishment of serious human rights violations committed by past or present authoritarian governments. These and other processes have not only radically altered the institutional landscape of the region, but also produced academic and practical innovations that are of global interest. Painting a portrait of the new Latin American legal thought for an international audience, Law and Society in Latin America: A New Map will be of particular interest to those studying law and Latin American studies.

  • Indigenous medicine, official health, and medical pluralism
  • National medicines and sanitarian states
  • Making national and international health
  • Medical innovation in the twentieth century
  • Primary health care, neoliberal response, and global health in Latin America
  • Conclusion.
"Despite several studies on the social, cultural, and political histories of medicine and of public health in different parts of Latin America and the Caribbean, local and national focuses still predominate, and there are few panoramic studies that analyze the overarching tendencies in the development of health in the region. This comprehensive book summarizes the social history of medicine, medical education, and public health in Latin America and places it in dialogue with the international historiographical currents in medicine and health. Ultimately, this text provides a clear, broad, and provocative synthesis of the history of Latin American medical developments while illuminating the recent challenges of global health in the region and other developing countries"--Provided by publisher.

  • 1. Embracing the Other Side : an introduction
  • PART I: THEORISING AUTONOMY. 2. Meanings of Autonomy : Trajectories, Modes, Differences ; 3. Autonomy in the Key of Hope : Understanding Prefiguration
  • PART II: NAVIGATING AUTONOMY. 4. Organising Negation : Neoliberal Hopelessness, Insurgent Hope (Mexico) ; 5. Shaping Concrete Utopias : Urban Experiments (Argentina) ; 6. Resisting Translation : Indigenous-Popular Resistance (Bolivia) ; 7. Venturing Beyond the Wire : The Sem Terra's Dream (Brazil)
  • PART III: RETHINKING AUTONOMY. 8. Confronting Value with Hope : a Prefigurative Critique of Political Economy ; 9. Living in Blochian Times : Opening Remarks.
"Dinerstein offers a much needed review of the concept and practice of autonomy. She argues that defining autonomy as either revolutionary or ineffective vis-a-vis the state does not fully grasp the commitment of Latin American movements' to the creation of alternative practices and horizons beyond capitalism. By establishing an elective affinity between autonomy and Bloch's principle of hope, the author defines autonomy as 'the art of organizing hope', that is the art of shaping a reality which does not yet exists but can be anticipated by the movements collective actions. Drawing from the experience of four prominent indigenous and non-indigenous movements, Dinerstein suggests that the politics of autonomy produce an excess that cannot be translated into the grammar of power. This involves an engagement with a reality that is not yet and, therefore, counters value with hope. The book also offers a critique of political economy, reading Marx's philosophy in key with hope, and interprets the prefigurative features of autonomy at a time when utopia can no longer be objected"-- Provided by publisher.
