Abstract: Ethnic Identity and Indigenismo in Postrevolutionary Mexico
Mentor: Dr. Frederick Strange, Anthropology
The issue of ethnic and national identity in Mexico is one that has gone through many transformations and is consistently challenged. Its case within Latin America nomenclature is particularly unique for its polemic and prolific contributions in the search of identity. This research examined the post revolutionary formation of a new identity that had mestizaje (miscegenation) as its focal point in creating a new "new progressive" Mexico from the turbulent years of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920). The issue of ethnic and national identity in contemporary Mexico is one that is still being debated and as such an emphasis will be placed on the phases that it has gone through throughout the centuries.
