The twenty-two essays in this collection examine a wide scope of past and
present cultural interrelations and interdependences in the Americas.
Exploring mutual gazes, separations, and linkages, this volume highlights
regional, national, and transnational contacts in the New World; it raises
awareness of the contrasts that separate American cultures; and it
examines the confluences of New World issues, traditions, and practices.
Contributing to the emerging field of Inter-American Studies, this
collection increases our theoretical understanding of cultural hybridity
and demonstrates that cultural hybridity is by no means a recent
phenomenon in the Americas.
