Racial Hybridity and Challenge of Modernity in Post-Colonial Mexico
Languages of publication
The emergence of the modern racial ideology should be studied in the context of the concrete political events and transformation of the global world-system at the dawn of the modern era. Racial discourse presented somatic metaphor of asymmetrical distribution of political, economic and symbolic power in hierarchy of the world-system. Therefore, the development of the postcolonial Mexican society and the war between the United States of America and Mexico were interpreted and conceptualized by contemporary authors by terminology and logic of racial imagination involving the picture of the racial rise of Anglo-Saxons and the decline of mestizos and creoles.
