Institution Building and State Formation in Nineteenth-century Latin America

Institution Building and State Formation in Nineteenth-century Latin America

The major issues addressed include the relationships between institution-building and state formation; between the university and the development of a national and regional identity; and between modernism and Catholicism (still a central tension in the region's culture), including the discursive process of constructing an ideology that fused elements from the Enlightenment and the tradition of scholasticism.
