I am taking over the colonial survey

What do you think of these readings? In addition we will read Sylvia Wynter on the 1492 event, and we will see the new film on Bolívar, but it is poorly reviewed. We could use How tasty was my Frenchman although I wanted to use that elsewhere. We could use excerpts from that ancient Vargas Llosa essay I just came upon, El nacimiento del Perú, because it says we should read colonial texts because they raise current problems (although one could read much else that says the same, of course).

    And we can use this, on the Aztecs, with _Visión de los vencidos_. http://www.religiousstudiesproject.com/podcast/the-fate-of-earthly-things/
