Identity, Authenticity and Expertise: Quechua Literacy Regimes in the Peruvian Andes

Feb 26, 2014
4:30 PM
Giant Eagle Auditorium, Baker Hall


Based on ethnographic research about a language regime favoring Quechua in Apurimac in the southern Peruvian Andres, Virginia Zavala from Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru will discuss the disconnect between how the region is being imagined as a community of apurimenos. Zavala will analyze the way Quechua literacy is implicated in the construction of hierarchical relationships and in the formation of exclusive identities within the Quechua-speaking population.
