Research Question

I’m interested in researching how colonial powers used religion as part of cultural imperialism in the middle and later colonial period in Latin America. I would hope to find primary sources from different ethnic and socioeconomic groups and their views on religious practice. Looking at the spread of Christianity, from King Ferdinand’s claim of God giving his monarchy power over the “new world” to continued missionary efforts, may shed light on religious difference today.

    Great topic that will let you consider colonialism, resistance, and the creation of new hybrid cultural spaces. I’d start by narrowing to focus on a particular region/time period. Let me know what you’re thinking, and I’ll help!
