AAS 2700 - Festivals of the Americas

Communities throughout the Caribbean, and South, Central and North America celebrate festivals which are rooted in religious devotion, and which serve to mark sacred time and and to assert claims about religious, ethnic, and national identities. The class will read ethnographic accounts and listen to musical recordings of signature religious festivals–such as Saint Patrick’s Day in Boston, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and Carnival in Brazil.
