BOOK PRESENTATION TALK

Dr. Kathleen McIntyre, Assistant Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies and Associate Director of Honors Program, URI

Protestantism and State Formation in Post-revolutionary Oaxaca

Book abstract: McIntyre traces intra-village conflicts stemming from Protestant conversion in southern Mexico and demonstrates that both Protestants and Catholics deployed cultural identity as self-defense in clashes over local power and authority. By framing her study between the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and the Zapatista uprising of 1994, she demonstrates the ways Protestant conversion fueled regional and national discussions over the state’s conceptualization of indigenous citizenship and the parameters of local autonomy.
