Essays from an international scholarship provide an important theoretical contribution to debates on identity. * Explores the various instances of cultural encounters in Latin America from the Conquest to the present day * This volume is singularly wide in its breadth, covering sixteenth-century Aztec heraldry and Sahagun's Universal History of the Things of New Spain, to eighteenth-century notions of culture, nineteenth-century theatre, turn-of-the-century degeneration theory, and contemporary literature and culture. * The book s interdisciplinary approach combines literary and cultural studies, cultural history, art history, translation studies and cultural anthropology * A broad geographical scope covers Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Spain, Cuba and the United States. * The book makes an important theoretical contribution to the debates on identity through its innovative approaches, maintaining a fine balance between theoretical argument and empirical study * The essays are written by specialists of different nationalities based in the United Kingdom, the United States, Norway and Argentina, providing an international cutting-edge scholarship
