Researching religion in Latin America

November 24, 2014 · Leave a Comment

Hi everyone. Well, I meant to write a post right after my previous post, but, work happened! I am heading to Mexico on Saturday for the Feria Internacional del Libro, and I’ll make sure I write a post from there.

Today my colleague Amy Phillips and I helped a student who was researching Judaism and Jews in Ecuador, and she showed me a great source for Jewish Studies, RAMBI. Check out her research guide for Hebrew & Jewish Studies to help you find more resources about this often-overlooked culture in Latin America.

Given Georgetown’s Catholic affiliation, many librarians here collect quite a few books and other resources to research religions around the world. I just did a quick search on general books about religion in Latin America, with these results.

Besides my own guides on Latin American Studies, there are also other research guides that may be handy. Besides obvious ones like Theology & Religions or Asian Religions, guides on sociology, education, and other related topics may also be useful.

Side note: the Library of Congress Hispanic Reading Room has digitized many books in Ladino, and here they are.

Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, and enjoy the time off/time to get caught up! 🙂 Thank you for reading.
