Extremo Occidente y Extremo Oriente. Herencias asiáticas en la América hispánica

Abstract : Historical, cultural or literary studies on Spanish-speaking America have long obeyed the logic of a face-to-face with Europe. Research on the influence of the Far East in the process of individuation of the sub-continent has therefore been denied to the point where it still lacks real legitimacy today, except perhaps in Cuba and Brazil. The ambition of this book has been to highlight the missed encounters but also, and above all, the cultural transfers between the Far East and Hispanic America, from the 16th century to the present day. Some of them were direct, others passed through Europe: they enriched the dialogue between the Old and New Worlds with new resonances. The Philippines, Mexico and Peru have a special place here in the manufacture of mixed-race cultural objects. In the same vein, the authors wished to confront historians, art historians and literary scholars in order to restore to the friction of cultures the plurality of voices it deserved.
