Colonial Counterpoint: New World Texts as Sites of Encounter, 1492-1800

2018 Colonial Counterpoint Poster 6 HR.jpg

This exhibit examines early New World textual encounters between Europeans and Amerindians through selected rare books and original manuscripts from The Latin American Library’s special collections.  We focus specifically on how disparate conceptions of language and writing played out as ideological and discursive features within key texts.  Reflecting the Library’s collection strengths, the exhibit focuses most prominently on Mesoamerica.
