Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa’s History of the Incas (1572). A Critical Study and Annotated Edition.

by Aleksín H. Ortega

Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa wrote his polemic and undoubtedly political History of the Incas at the request of Francisco de Toledo (Viceroy of Peru, 1569-1581). Toledo wanted to deliver to the Spanish King a version of Incan history which could subsequently be used as an ideological tool in the search of legal and moral arguments to defend the Andean colonization by the Spanish monarchy. Since his arrival to the Peruvian territories, Toledo embarked on a long personal visit ...

Contesting Representations Of Gender And Womanhood In Mexico The Photomontages Of Lola Álvarez Bravo, 1935–1958, Alana Hernandez 2018 CUNY Hunter College

Contesting Representations Of Gender And Womanhood In Mexico The Photomontages Of Lola Álvarez Bravo, 1935–1958, Alana Hernandez

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903–1993), a Mexican photographer, photojournalist, portraitist, and teacher created approximately thirty photomontages during the span of her fifty-year career. This thesis argues that Álvarez Bravo turned to photomontage during targeted periods of her career in order to contest and challenge prevailing discourses on motherhood and femininity. A close analysis of eight photomontages produced between 1935 to the last printed in 1958 make evident the manifold ways Álvarez Bravo represented gender as a contested, political, and personal concern.


Perceptions On Santería: Then And Now, Ludmille Glaude 2018 La Salle University

Perceptions On Santería: Then And Now, Ludmille Glaude

Undergraduate Research

This paper will examine how the Batista and Castro regimes were able to impact the perception of Santería amongst the Cuban public. Santeria is a polytheistic religion practiced in Cuba that combines elements of Yoruba beliefs and Catholicism. Recently, Santeria appears to be experiencing a growth in visibility in Cuba. The syncretic religion and its visibility, has become of interest to examine and report on, amongst many media outlets. According to a Vice News article published as recently as 2014, the author dubs Santería as “Cuba’s New Religion”. The article describes Santería as a dynamic form of worship, with ...

Trauma In Guatemala And Postville, Iowa, Jessica J. Lechtenberg 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Trauma In Guatemala And Postville, Iowa, Jessica J. Lechtenberg

Latin American Studies: Student Scholarship & Creative Works

This study uses a historical understanding of Guatemala to explain the significant trauma following the largest immigration raid in U.S. history which primarily deported Guatemalan residents who had been working at the Agriprocessors meat processing plant without documentation. Through an analysis of literature detailing the immigration raid, Guatemala's history of violence, and court proceedings, I have found that high levels of trauma exist for the individuals who were deported following the raid and for their families and friends. Personal communication with the current Dean of Students at Postville's public school lends a hand in gaining a deeper ...


Memory And History In South Eleuthera: A Report To The People Of South Eleuthera, Elena Sesma 2018 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Memory And History In South Eleuthera: A Report To The People Of South Eleuthera, Elena Sesma

Archaeological Project Reports

Over the past 5 years, archaeologists from the University of Massachusetts Amherst have made several short-term trips to South Eleuthera to research the history of this portion of the island. Our main interests have been in understanding how the landscape has changed over the past 150 years, and especially in the past few decades as tourism has fallen off in the south. Through a combination of ethnographic research and pedestrian survey of the South Eleuthera landscape, we have gained a clearer understanding of the history of this region, and of contemporary life today. This report offers a summary of findings ...

Crossing The Border Into Poetry: Documenting The Undocumented And The Trauma Of Migration In Javier Zamora’S "Unaccompanied", Chloe Ruth Reimann 2018 Bard College

Crossing The Border Into Poetry: Documenting The Undocumented And The Trauma Of Migration In Javier Zamora’S "Unaccompanied", Chloe Ruth Reimann

Senior Projects Spring 2018

My project focuses on Unaccompanied, a collection of poetry by Salvadoran American Javier Zamora published in September of 2017. In 1999 Zamora made the dangerous journey from El Salvador to the United States at the age of nine as an unaccompanied minor. It is this journey that inspired the title of this work. By retracing his footsteps some two decades later, Zamora grapples with his status as an undocumented person in the United States, the scars of the brutal journey across the Sonoran Desert, as well as the fragmented nature of his memories of home.

This project asks what it ...

Strategic Transparency: Declassification Politics In United States- Latin American Relations, Isabel Snodgrass 2018 Bard College

Strategic Transparency: Declassification Politics In United States- Latin American Relations, Isabel Snodgrass

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Domestic politics in Latin America since the end of the Cold War has been characterized by the complicated process of coming to terms with its violent past. For years, the United States has had the power to aid in investigations into crimes committed during the Latin American dictatorships of the 1970s and 1980s. The US was so deeply involved in the dictatorships that thousands of pages of evidence on the crimes committed are available in CIA, Military, and Presidential archives. Through making these classified documents available, the United States has a unique opportunity to make amends for its involvement in ...
