Religion and Identity Struggles for Citizenship Rights and Justice: Brazil and Argentina

Author: Joanildo A. BURITY, Senior Lecturer, Durham University, UK

 

Abstract:

One of the recent developments in the Latin American context is the growing public impact of identity claims and disputes, which are connected to demands for citizenship rights and justice for political representation. The cultural dimension of this process is inextricably linked with the political one, both in a symbolic and a political sense. This article explores one of the particular instances of the process: the public emergence of religions and its relation to endogenous changes to Latin American societies and to the effects of global flows on the dynamics of the former. The analysis, part of a broader comparative study underway, focuses on the field of Christianity in Brazil and Argentina.
