Afro-Asian Lives and Cultures in Latin America (Public Virtual Workshop)
Organizer: Christina Lee, Spanish and Portuguese
Fri, 9/24 · 10:00 am-3:30 pm ·
Department of Spanish & Portuguese; Humanities Council
Afro-Asian Lives and Cultures in Latin America challenges established notions of identity in former Spanish and Portuguese colonies. It expands on current notions of mestizaje (racial mixing) by focusing on the personal and communal bonds that were forged between subjects of African and Asian descent from the mid-sixteenth century onwards in Latin America, while not overlooking the tensions and conflicts that have also marked their histories.
