  • What part of Latin America you have information about? What kind of information? Are you connected (personally or otherwise) with Latin America?
  • We are still missing big populations of Latin Americans located in several states of the United States such Queens (New York City), Paterson (New Jersey) and Los Angeles (California). Other States with big populations are Michigan, North Carolina, Colorado. PREGUNTARLES: What continent are you from? –AMERICA—The Panama Canal is a man-made construction/channel or (route [rút])

  • The process by which various elements from one culture are fused into another culture to form a new cultural unit. Latin American culture and humanities are essentially syncretic.

  • Admiratio: From Latin, meaning "wonderment". Early Latin Europeans in the Americas reacted to each and every novelty they encountered with amazement, wonderment, appreciation, admiration, ecstacy. In the 20th century Latin Americans rediscovered this sense of amazement over their own realities

  • From Latin, meaning "fear of a vacuum/void". The aspects of pre-Columbian humanities that show a tendency to fill up all available space for carving, painting, ritual, etc., demonstrate the notion of horror vacui . Also, Spanish baroque linguistic and visual humanities also demonstrate this characteristic. Therefore, in Latin America, which is a fusion of pre-Columbian and Spanish-American traits, one sees a heightened presence of horror vacui in the humanities.
  • From Latin, meaning "desire". A strong motivation for Latin-European conquest was getting rich and powerful. Cupio involves such a strong desire for possession of valuable things (gold, silver, jewels, land, souls, etc.) among native Americans that it led to a violent lust for them. This is one of the principle characteristics of the periods of Conquest and Colonization. This was the city of Aztec emperor Moctezuma that Cortez wanted to hand over as a prize to his king, Emperor Charles V (above, a 1930 artistic impression). But in the terrible siege of 1521, Cortez and his army, supported by thousands of the Aztecs´ enemies, ended up destroying most of it.

  • From Latin, meaning "religion". The motivation and process by which Latin-nation European colonizers imposed their own form of Christianity on native-American peoples. This is one of the principle characteristics of the periods of Conquest and Colonization. For the purposes of the course, the term can be extended to the unique encounter between Roman Catholicism and the multiplicity of indigenous religions that predated the introduction of Christianity in Latin America and that, in many cases continue in the present to survive alongside or fused with various forms of Christianity and African religions. CONVERSION TO CATHOLICISM = ATAHUALPA versus PIZARRO. CHRONICLERS.

  • “ Lo real maravilloso” marvelous is different to magic. In the US we talk about magic, if we don ’ t have an explanation then it is magical, but in LA cultures when there is not explanation then it is marvelous. ** This is a movement in Latin American humanities during the second half of the 20th century which features a birthing of cutting edge innovations such as the Novel of the Boom, a fusion of prior aesthetic movements, international recognition for Latin American humanists, experimentation, a rediscovery of the marvelous in Latin American reality, and the like.
  • One of the root ideas of so-called Magical Realism, based on the notion of the original Greek earth modern goddess, Chthon. The notion is that all of Latin American reality and expression in language and the arts arises from and is based on what comes specifically and uniquely from the earth of Latin America.
