Weaving the past : a history of Latin America's indigenous women from the prehispanic period to the present by Susan Kellogg( )

21 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weaving the Past offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary history of Latin America's indigenous women. While the book concentrates on native women in Mesoamerica and the Andes, it covers indigenous people in other parts of South and Central America, including lowland peoples in and beyond Brazil, and Afro-indigenous peoples, such as the Garifuna, of Central America. Drawing on primary and secondary sources, it argues that change, not continuity, has been the norm for indigenous peoples whose resilience in the face of complex and long-term patterns of cultural change is due in no small part to the roles, actions, and agency of women. The book provides broad coverage of gender roles in native Latin America over many centuries, drawing upon a range of evidence from archaeology, anthropology, religion, and politics. Primary and secondary sources include chronicles, codices, newspaper articles, and monographic work on specific regions. Arguing that Latin America's indigenous women were the critical force behind the more important events and processes of Latin America's history, Kellogg interweaves the region's history of family, sexual, and labor history with the origins of women's power in prehispanic, colonial, and modern South and Central America. Shying away from interpretations that treat women as house bound and passive, the book instead emphasizes women's long history of performing labor, being politically active, and contributing to, even supporting, family and community well-being

Law and the transformation of Aztec culture, 1500-1700 by Susan Kellogg( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a wide array of local-level Spanish and Nahuatl documentation and an intensive analysis of seventy-three lawsuits over property involving Indians resident in Tenochtitlan/Mexico City that were heard by the Real Audiencia between 1536 and 1700, this work clearly shows that legal documentation offers important clues to underlying cultural assumptions, attitudes and perceptions. While most colonial "Aztec" studies have focused on macro-level structural changes, this book brings a highly empirical focus to everyday life. This clearly written, even-handed treatment of the late pre-Hispanic and early colonial periods will be of interest to students of colonialism, law, gender, and social theory as well as to historical and anthropological specialists in pre-Hispanic and colonial Mesoamerica

Choices and changes : the investigation of a slave/tenant cabin Magnolia Plantation, Derry, Louisiana by Stephanie A Cole( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The brick cabins of the Magnolia Plantation Quarters in Derry, Louisiana were occupied continuously from the early to mid 1840's thru the late 1960's where 7.5 of the brick cabins stand today. The investigation of a number of the home and yard spaces of this community conducted by Kenneth Brown, have yielded evidence of changing beliefs, landscape, architecture, use of space and a changing sense of unity and individualism. As a component of this larger project, the research presented in this thesis show these changes as they are manifested in one of the extant cabins and its associated yard spaces. Only a limited amount of archaeological research has been performed in and around postbellum tenant communities. The results of this research demonstrate the importance of the tenant community sites to the study of the continued development and evolution of African American culture
Economics in history : the apologetic science in Argentina, 1913-1953 by Guillermo Emilio Nakhlé( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation explores the emergence and development of a distinctive professional group: economists in Argentina between 1913 and 1953. This group arose in the context of the rise of state interventionism and the new challenge for Latin American economies in the interwar period. The thesis focuses primarily on the University of Buenos Aires, where the first Faculty of Economic Sciences in Latin America was created in 1913. The dissertation examines the evolution of this institution, as well as the debates it provoked over economic policy, intervention and non-intervention and the nature and scope of economics as a science. It also examines the figures of Alejandro Bunge, Federico Pinedo and Raúl Prebisch. The ultimate goal of this work is to define the scientific spirit of students and professors who were impelled by a new and promising discipline: economics as the most rigorous social science devoted to solve structural problems. The thesis is located at the intersection of the subfields of intellectual history and the history of political economy. It argues that the scientific status of economics was achieved through a set of apologetic procedures that had to do with discourses and scholarly ceremonials driven by the aspiration of establishing economics alongside hard sciences as physics. It concludes that these three figures played a key role in the construction and consolidation of the professional economist profile, and at the same time they gave rise to a new way to understand the state bureaucracy and the need to demand the expertise of this new professionals
Domestic Revolutions by Susan Kellogg( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An examination of how the concept of "family" has been transformed over the last three centuries in the U.S., from its function as primary social unit to today's still-evolving model. Based on a wide reading of letters, diaries and other contemporary documents, Mintz, an historian, and Kellogg, an anthropologist, examine the changing definition of "family" in the United States over the course of the last three centuries, beginning with the modified European model of the earliest settlers. From there they survey the changes in the families of whites (working class, immigrants, and middle class) and blacks (slave and free) since the Colonial years, and identify four deep changes in family structure and ideology: the democratic family, the companionate family, the family of the 1950s, and lastly, the family of the '80s, vulnerable to societal changes but still holding together
Selling Mexico : race, gender, and American influence in Cancún, 1970-2000 by Tracy A Butler( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Selling Mexico highlights the importance of Cancún, Mexico's top international tourism resort, in modern Mexican history. It promotes a deeper understanding of Mexico's social, economic, and cultural history in the late twentieth century. In particular, this study focuses on the rise of mass middle-class tourism American tourism to Mexico between 1970 and 2000. It closely examines Cancún's central role in buttressing Mexico to its status as a regional tourism pioneer in the latter half of the twentieth century. More broadly, it also illuminates Mexico's leadership in tourism among countries in the Global South. First, it focuses on early tourism projects in Mexico in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It also highlights the changes in relations between Americans and Mexicans, in part as a result of the Good Neighbor Policy, during this period. The increased friendliness between Americans and Mexicans was important in Mexico's ability to garner more tourism from the U.S. during this period. As a result, Mexico became more dependent than before on American tourism and tailored its hospitality holdings to American tourists' market demands. This study also examines the role of ideologies in Mexico's state-led tourism development, including Pan Americanism, internationalism and nationalism. It studies Pan Americanism and internationalism in tourism promotions abroad and at home. It also looks at the state's attempts to foster pride in national patrimony in order to promote a unified national identity and encourage more Mexican nationals to travel throughout their nation. This coincided with the government's development of the "social tourism" sector in the 1970s. In this way, Selling Mexico expands the historical record on the state's post-revolutionary nation-building projects and promotes a re-examination of tourism in relation to nationalism and Mexico's cultural history in the latter half of the twentieth century. In addition, this study analyzes state-led tourism planning and its historical relationship to the development of Cancún. In that same vein, it illuminates the state's motivations for tourism development, interpreting it as a strategy to promote economic development as well as a method to quell leftist resistance movements which were surging in the Mexican countryside during the 1960s and 1970s. It also contextualizes mass tourism during the Jet Age. In addition, Selling Mexico analyzes the intersecting relationship between capitalism, race, class, and gender in tourism. It promotes a critical analysis of these connections by examining the impact of indigenous communal ejido land expropriations, city planning, beach privatization, hiring practices, and tourism promotions on the development of Cancún. Selling Mexico interprets Cancún as a cultural borderland. It closely studies the convergence of foreign and domestic people, culture, and capital in Cancún. It looks at Cancún's identity as a transnational "no-place," where culture and "authenticity" take on new meanings in the age of globalization and free trade. It also interrogates the tensions between Mexican ownership and international enterprise, arguing that in the era of neoliberalism, they are often unified due to the growing presence of large and ever- expanding international partnerships and conglomerates. Finally, it examines the state's control of its international image abroad. In an industry susceptible to perceptions of public safety, image was considered to be essential to expanding tourism. Therefore, it carefully examines how the state dealt with international reports of drug trafficking, natural disasters, violence, and kidnapping in Mexico. As an in-depth study of Cancún, Selling Mexico uses tourism to more closely examine the intersections between race, class, gender, capitalism, culture, and international relations
Historical memory, proto-nationalism, and nationalism in Mexico : southwestern Puebla from1519 to 1862 by Juan Manuel Galvan Rodriguez( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation traces the evolution of micro-patriotism as practiced in pre-Columbian Mexico; the development of parallel proto-nationalist ideologies among Indians, blacks, castas, and criollos during the colonial era; and the widespread expressions of popular nationalism expressed from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries in the Atlixco-Izúcar region. The concept of a glorious and noble Aztec nation promoted by the writings of Spanish, criollo, and Indian historians was a tenet held by many colonial subjects. Similarly, holy icons such as the Virgen de Guadalupe, herself a syncretic figure composed of Indian and Spanish elements, gave a common religious identity to the different ethnic groups that lived side by side in southwestern Puebla. Armed by similar patriotic sentiments, large popular sectors came together in a common struggle for independence in the 1810s and in resistance to the United States and French invaders in the mid-nineteenth century. These dynamics, however, do not constitute evidence for the existence of a continuous line of nationalist thought in Mexico since ancient times. By focusing on the patriotic sentiments of people of color in the Atlixco-Izúcar region, this dissertation instead traces an unbroken line of popular nationalism to the popular uprisings of mid- and late-eighteenth century New Spain. This study illustrates how oppression at the hands of the Spaniards gave impoverished people of color and some criollos a common enemy and a shared class consciousness. By focusing on the patriotic sentiments of the people of southwestern Puebla, this dissertation suggests that the widespread expressions of popular nationalism found in this region are linked to popular historical memory and to local histories of anti-colonial resistance
