Rutgers Center For Minority Serving Institutions Presents “The Spanish Legacy: From Creole Patriotism to Chicano Power”
This webinar will provide an overview of Spain and The Hispanic World. The central aim of this project is to analyze and interpret the modern legacy of Spain throughout Hispanic-America by identifying major ideological and historical turning points over the past five-hundred years. For some, the relationship between Spain and Hispanic-America was seen as positive and emotionally enriching, for others Spain was deemed the main source of cultural and economic backwardness. This talk will discuss some of the difficulties involved in producing this type of nuanced research and will offer suggestions on ways to conduct historical scholarship that is direct and honest and yet mindful of historical trauma.
