HIST 170 PZ -Hybrid Identities: Spanish Empire


Institution: Pitzer

Description: In the Spanish Empire, many distinct peoples coexisted under one king and together created a diverse imperial society. This seminar examines the ways that religion, ethnicity, language, law and space defined or failed to define people in the Spanish Empire. We will pay particular attention to the processes of cultural encounter, domination, resistance and adaptation that formed identity. The course begins in Spain, exploring interactions between “old Christian” Spaniards, Jewish people converted to Christianity and Muslims converted to Christianity. We then turn to colonial Latin America and the Philippines to consider interactions between Spaniards and indigenous peoples such as Aztec, Inca, Maya, and Tagalog Filipinos.
