Cultural and Research Resources from and about Latin America

When the COVID-19 outbreak limited our ability to connect with one another to online communications, we scoured the Internet to find recources to share with our listserv. We focused on online outreach programs from various cultural institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. From virtual tours of museums to music and theater performances streamed live, we highlighted transnational initiatives aimed at making Latin American cultural resources available in new formats. Links that were included in our digests have been compiled here for continued access. Some of the resources may no longer be available, but we are including them here as a way to showcase the organizations and artists that have made their work available during the pandemic. For additional resources, you can also explore the Latin American and Caribbean Studies digital collections through the library. Please explore and enjoy.

Strachwitz Frontera Collection of Mexican and Mexican American Recordings
The Arhoolie Foundation's Strachwitz Frontera Collection of Mexican and Mexican American Recordings is the largest repository of these commercially produced vernacular recordings in existence. The nearly 160,000 recordings in the collection were made primarily in the United States and Mexico and were issued on 78 rpm, 45 rpm, and 33⅓ rpm (long-playing, or LP) phonograph records and cassette and reel-to-reel tapes. The earliest recording was made in 1908, and the latest recordings were released in the 1990s. These performances are divided into three sections, roughly by era. Because of the depth and breadth of each section, and because many of the recordings are irreplaceable, the Strachwitz Frontera Collection is unique. V
Gómez-Peña’s Mex Files: Audio Art & Strange Poetry from the US/Mexico Border (1985–2021)
In a first-ever partnership, Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (JAHHM), Public Media Institute (PMI) and the Smart Museum of Art will present a year-long series of experimental audio performances from Guillermo Gómez-Peña, a performance artist, writer, activist, and MacArthur Fellow, class of 1991.

This ongoing series will present samples of his previous work (1980—2015) and newly recorded material created in the last two years and during lock-down. 



The Moment of the Yagrumo
El momento del yagrumo addresses our relationship with nature through three central themes: the rights of nature; demands of sovereignty and resistance; through the work of 21 artists and collectives active in Caribbean and the Americas. The exhibition refers to the present, the time after the passage of a devastating storm when the strongest trees in the tropical forest fall and then, in that unexpected clearing, the yagrumo can germinate. This tree is much weaker and, although its sprouts give the sensation and greenery that indicate recovery, they will be easier to fall in future storms. These times of extreme and more frequent storms could accelerate processes in which the forests themselves help create the global warming that destroys them. The "yagrumo moment" is simultaneously a metaphor for post-hurricane recovery, but also the urgency for deeper changes in our relationship with nature.
De coco y Anís: Un proyecto de amor para Rafael Cortijo

Existir, es un ejercicio de resistencia en una isla marcada por el carácter represivo del poder dominante”.
¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues
Baseball is the national pastime. But it’s also an American export, one with a tradition that’s constantly evolving. ¡Pleibol! shares the experiences of Latinas and Latinos whose love for the game and incredible talent have changed baseball and transformed American culture forever.

A Nation Emerges: 65 Years of Photography in Mexico
A Nation Emerges: Sixty-five Years of Photography in Mexico represents the work of 30 known Mexican, European, and American photographers, as well as that of anonymous photographers, with over 600 images. Photographic formats include albumen, collodion, and gelatin silver prints, carte-de-visite, cabinet cards, photo albums, and postcards. The earliest images in the site were made in 1857, the same year that Benito Juárez was appointed acting president of the Republic of Mexico. However, the majority span the period from the beginning of the French Intervention in the early 1860s to the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1920. This tumultuous and dynamic period in the history of Mexico coincided with rapid developments in the new field of photography. This resource provides a case study of how quickly photography came to be an indispensable means of documenting, recording, and disseminating multiple views of history. The Getty Research Institute Online Research Guide provides digital views of photographs of Mexico from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century, presented with an overview, chronology, photographers' biographies, glossary, bibliography, and list of related holdings.

National Museum of African American History and Culture’s Latinx Collection
The National Museum of African American History and Culture presents American history through an African American lens. Latinx history is American history and the NMAAHC is committed to collecting, documenting, interpreting, and preserving Latinx history and culture as an integral part of that American story. Black history is globally created and globally impactful. A shared legacy of the transatlantic slave trade connects the histories and cultures of the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Further, Latinxs and Latin Americans—black and non-black—have historically contributed to and have been shaped by African American culture, including performing arts, music, literature, sports, and political movements. Conversely, African Americans have influenced Latinx and Latin American art, history, and culture as well. Articulating these connections across the African Diaspora affirms black American history as multicultural and inclusive of Latinx experiences. The Latinx-related objects and archival collections at the National Museum of African American History and Culture traverse racial identifications and national boundaries. This online portal is a guide to exploring the diversity of our Latinx-related holdings.

Only recently has the Denver Art Museum begun to acquire modern and contemporary Latin American art, as the collection should not be solely devoted to explore the past, but also bridge with the cultural narratives of the present and the future.
Latinx Art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum
The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s leading Latinx art collection represents a profound commitment to building a great national collection reflecting the rich contributions of Latinos to our country, from the colonial period to the present. Artists featured in the collection reflect the diversity of Latino communities in the United States, including artists of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Dominican descent, as well as other Latin American groups with deep roots in the United States. SAAM’s Latinx collection presents a picture of an evolving national culture that challenges expectations of what is meant by “American” and “Latino.” Themes since the mid-twentieth century, when the concept of a collective Latino identity began to emerge, tackle civil rights, identity, and reexamining community and bicultural experiences. Many of the Latinx artists in the collection critically probe American history and popular culture, revealing the possibilities and tensions of expansionism, migration, and settlement. Other Latinx artists devote themselves to experimentation and form, pushing the limits of their chosen medium.

Stories of Abstraction: Contemporary Latin American Art in the Global Context
Stories of Abstraction: Contemporary Latin American Art in the Global Context presents rarely seen artworks by some of Latin America’s most innovative contemporary artists to uncover how abstraction can be used to generate new narratives, insightful social commentary, and even political change. Showcasing more than 40 recently acquired works of contemporary Latin American art alongside 30 works by American and European artists, Stories of Abstraction: Contemporary Latin American Art in the Global Context explores how the visual language of abstraction has generated profound insights into Latin American culture and politics and how Latin American artists have drawn on abstraction’s parallel history in the United States and Europe. 
William Camargo: Negotiated Frontiers
In Negotiated Frontiers, on view from January 14 to April 30, photo-based artist William Camargo brings together three bodies of work that negotiate space and interrogate the artist’s positionality while aiming to deconstruct the photographic canon. Using photography, installation, political public performances, and community archiving, this exhibition re-evaluates a photographic history that continuously omits or tokenizes Black, Indigenous, Queer and Brown perspectives in the medium. This virtual exhibition curated by Dalina A. Perdomo-Álvarez, will run from January 14 - April 20th 2021, and be paired with a limited edition print publication. The publication* will further expand upon Camargo’s Origins & Displacements, As Far As I Can Get, and All That I Can Carry series. 
Latin American Popular Art
In the spring of 2017, there was a confined flood in the Latin American Folk Art gallery. This incident required a complete deinstallation in order to repair the gallery space. After being closed for three years, the gallery will reopen on September 12, with a new interpretation of our treasured collection. Instead of using traditional themes to organize the gallery (utility, decoration, ceremony, and play), the reinstallation structures the collection using flexible themes such as, “Life, Death, and Faith” and “Legacies of Craftsmanship.” The gallery will also share the history of the Latin American folk art collection and frame it within the movement to promote and collect Latin American folk art in the twentieth century. The new title provides a more faithful translation of the original Spanish term for this genre (arte popular). The term “popular art” in this context also encompasses a broader range of Latin American and Spanish material culture, taking into consideration the remarkable size and diversity of SAMA’s Latin American art collection.

ACT UP Oral History Project
The ACT UP Oral History Project is an archive of 187 interviews with members of ACT UP, the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, New York. ACT UP, founded in March of 1987, is a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals, united in anger and committed to direct action to end the AIDS crisis.  Its determined advocacy and highly-focused demonstrations supported by innovative graphics utterly changed the world’s perception of people with AIDS and queer people.  It radically altered the medical research and drug approval processes in the United States, and the doctor/patient relationship, while its 4-year campaign to change the CDC definition of AIDS to include opportunistic infections affecting women and injection drug users saved millions of lives across the world.  The Latina/o Caucus fostered not only AIDS Activism, but also jump started LGBT activism in Puerto Rico.  For that reason and many others, we’re delighted that we could include the Latina/o Caucus Archive, a mixed media archive developed by Julián de Mayo and sourced largely from the personal collections of surviving members of the LC.
Archivo Prisma
Prisma es la plataforma web que hace posible la democratización del acceso al acervo audiovisual y sonoro del Archivo Histórico de RTA. Tal como establece el artículo 7 del Reglamento de Funcionamiento del Archivo Histórico de RTA, Prisma garantiza el acceso universal por internet del material emitido y/o grabado por Radio Nacional y la Televisión Pública, así como de piezas audiovisuales o sonoras a las que el Archivo ha accedido a través de los convenios de digitalización que RTA mantiene con diversas instituciones públicas de la Argentina. La publicación de los registros de video y audio es el resultado del proceso de digitalización y catalogación del fondo documental histórico de Radio Nacional y la Televisión Pública. Por tal motivo, se trata de un archivo dinámico y en construcción. En este sentido, el Archivo Histórico de RTA y Prisma asumen el compromiso de publicar, día a día, nuevos registros para revalorizar un patrimonio que durante años permaneció casi invisible e inaccesible al gran público.
Relational Futures: A Symposium for Indigenous Land, Water, and Environment
For whom have environments been protected, conserved, or honored? The prolonged impacts of environmental racism and settler colonialism, exacerbated by infrastructural and economic inequalities are realities shared by communities of color and Indigenous nations. How have notions of the commons and public lands, so central to environmental discourse in the United States, been used to simultaneously dispossess Indigenous territory and advance ideologies of conservation and protection? In light of the historical trajectory of these claims, catastrophic climate change, and ongoing global pandemic, how are Indigenous communities responding to and asserting their relationships to land and environment? Building and imagining more sustainable relationships with our environments, one another, and our other-than-human kin is crucial to our collective survival.
Latin American Digital Initiatives Repository
The Latin American Digital Initiatives (LADI) repository is a collaborative project that preserves and provides digital access to unique archival documents from a network of Latin American partners with an emphasis on collections documenting human rights issues and underrepresented communities. The collections in LADI have been digitized over the course of several years through post-custodial archival collaborations between LLILAS Benson and partner repositories in Latin America. Post-custodialism is a collaborative, non-extractive, mutualistic approach to providing access to archival collections within their original contexts of creation. Through these collaborations, LLILAS Benson aims to support the development of partners' archival capacity, particularly in the areas of digitization, preservation, arrangement, description, and access. This work is guided by a commitment to nurturing reciprocal relationships between a network of local and international collaborators. We aim to build a horizontal community of post-custodial practice by connecting Latin American partners with one another while decentering our own role in the network.E
Ethnic Studies Rise
Ethnic Studies Rise is a public humanities effort to honor the extraordinary contributions of scholar Dr. Lorgia García Peña. We will accomplish this in two ways: First, through a Roundtable, which will provide resources and entry points to consider the importance of Ethnic Studies to contemporary thought worldwide. Second, via the LorgiaFest, we will share, re-center, and curate a discussion of Dr. García Peña’s work in an effort to raise awareness of its key insights and reach wider audiences. We hope that in engaging with Dr. García Peña, we will also recognize and honor all of those Ethnic Studies scholars who have encountered resistance and retaliation for their timely work, and to the students who need them and fight daily for epistemological insurrection, academic freedom, and justice in the US academy.
Las horas oscuras y Cuando se va la luz - Prodavinci
Venezuela vivió tres apagones masivos en marzo de 2019: fue la primera vez que casi todo el país quedó sin luz por varios días. El gobierno implementó un plan de racionamiento eléctrico en abril. Prodavinci calculó que 60% de los venezolanos viven en parroquias sujetas a racionamiento formal. Identificamos que 241 centros educativos están racionados y 158 pierden el equivalente a una semana de clases al mes. De los 196 centros de salud que aparecen en el plan, 42 pasan el equivalente a más de tres días sin electricidad al mes. El racionamiento es desigual: mientras Cojedes tiene a casi toda su población en parroquias racionadas, Amazonas, Bolívar, Delta Amacuro, Distrito Capital y Vargas no tienen racionamiento oficial. En Cuando se va la luz, diez testimonios cuentan cómo es vivir en un país sin electricidad. En marzo de 2019 hubo tres apagones masivos. Por primera vez el país entero vivió a oscuras durante varios días. Desde entonces la electricidad no volvió a ser constante en todo el territorio nacional.

Borderlands Archives Cartography
Borderlands Archives Cartography (BAC) was founded in 2017 by borderland natives Maira E. Álvarez and Sylvia A. Fernández. BAC  is a project that consists of a digital map which displays a U.S.-Mexico border newspapers cartography that records geographic locations of nineteenth and mid-twentieth century periodicals. It is a personal initiative and it does not have any form of funding or financial support. The project emerges from the constant and current aggressive, political rhetoric that displays the geographic and ideological border between the United States and Mexico as a threat. As border natives our perspectives of the border are not represented by the political discourse. We understand the borderland as a space where different cultures co-exist under strong political, economic, and social hegemonies; as well as, a space where regions influence each other, but maintain their own identities. As part of the borderlands communities we understand the importance of visualizing material from the region.

To mark our new partnership with the Benson Latin American Collection, we have collected all these articles in one compilation page organized around 17 topics. These articles (156 in total) are a testament to the remarkable research conducted by faculty and graduate students at the University of Texas at Austin but they also draw more broadly from the work of groundbreaking scholars across the world. Together we believe they constitute an important resource for the field
Valor y Cambio
Valor y Cambio is a story-telling, community-building, and solidarity economy project started by artist Frances Negrón-Muntaner and visual artist Sarabel Santos Negrón. Started in Puerto Rico amidst the economic crisis and currently in New York City, Valor y Cambio is out to spark a broad conversation about what is a just economy and how to foster collective empowerment in the face of austerity and neoliberal policies locally and nationally. The project has encouraged participants to consider the question of how a community can create different conceptions of wealth —one that promotes values such as accessible education, a clean environment, creativity, self-governance, solidarity, food security, and gender, labor, and racial equity.

The Mapas Project
The Mapas Project has as its focus the digitization and study of colonial Mesoamerican pictorial manuscripts. The term "mapa" was used loosely in New Spain to refer to pictorials that may or may not have had a cartographic dimension, but often showed the territories or landscapes of indigenous communities. Because it is our aim to expand the number of manuscripts under study at this site, archives and museums are welcomed to offer additional manuscripts for incorporation. It is our hope that colleagues around the world will also offer their comments, alternative transcriptions, suggested translations, and interpretations, and that these will be incorporated, periodically, into these pages. The Mapas Project utilizes a online distance research environment (DRE) developed by the Wired Humanities and Feminist Humanities Projects of the Center for the Study of Women in Society at the University of Oregon to encourage and facilitate international collaboration among scholars, teachers, and interested communities.

Biblioteca Digital Mexicana
La Biblioteca Digital Mexicana, BDMx, nació el 23 de noviembre de 2010 por decisión de cuatro importantes instituciones culturales mexicanas ligadas a la historia y a la cultura: el Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, el Archivo General de la Nación, La Biblioteca Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) y el Centro de Estudios de Historia de México CEHM-Carso. Estas instituciones decidieron unir esfuerzos para crear una biblioteca digital multi-institucional mexicana: aportarían documentos históricos y culturales relevantes de sus fondos, e invitarían a unirse a este esfuerzo a las numerosas bibliotecas y archivos mexicanos, y a los repositorios extranjeros que tengan importante documentación mexicana. Hoy en día muchos archivos y bibliotecas están digitalizando sus fondos y abriendo páginas de internet donde muestran una selección. La novedad de esta iniciativa es que es multi-institucional, y un proyecto sencillo y amigable enfocado exclusivamente en ofrecer al público documentos muy valiosos y poco conocidos, completos, con capacidad de ampliación y acompañados de introducciones útiles e historiográficamente serias.

Caribbean Anti-Colonial Thought Archive Project
This archive is a continuing project of the Trinity College Center for Caribbean Studies. The archive is being built and will continue to be built by Trinity College undergraduates under supervision by members of the Trinity College faculty. The ultimate content and form of the archive will be determined by their work. The archive building process could be referred to as growth by sedimentation. Each team of students working on the archive adds a new layer of content and/or formatting. The aspiration is for the archive eventually to become a valuable research tool for students and scholars interested in the Caribbean, colonialism, and anti-colonialism.
