Collective & the Public in Latin America

Cultural Identities & Political Order

Edited by: Luis Roniger, Tamar Herzog

This book traces the interplay between the public structuring and regulation of identities and the creative processes of collective identification, appropriation and evasion of identities. It deals with the ways in which individuals and social groups have developed and enacted identities as cultural resources with different degrees of public recognition and political legitimation, and how these identities have had an impact in defining the boundaries of social order and diversity.
