This fascinating collection of essays and articles shows how Latin Americans travels and residency abroad helped them re-examine their own origins and perceptions of their homeland.

Latin Americans traveled both purposefully and frequently in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Strange Pilgrimages reveals their experiences in Europe and the United States, and explores their power to shape opinions and bring outside influence back to Latin America. This new book analyzes Latin Americans; longstanding attraction to and interest in other cultures as barometers of their own progress. In addition, Strange Pilgrimages examines the invention of tradition, cultural practice, and identity formation among nation-states.

A combination of articles and primary sources provides readers with both informed analysis of the experiences of Latin American travellers and entertaining first-hand accounts from the travellers and exiles themselves. These travellers were a diverse group that included artists, diplomats, political exiles, athletes, dilettantes, and more.

Readers will learn that Latin Americans came to understand their homelands better and in fact helped to define their own countries; identities through their experiences traveling and living abroad.

Review:

An engaging, delightful, and informative collection of essays by and about Latin Americans who 'discover' Europe and North America. Beginning with Andrés Bello's nearly thirty-year exile in London and ending with Carmen Miranda's experiences in 1940s Hollywood, Strange Pilgrimages covers a lot of ground and covers it very well. This is truly an essential book for anyone interested in Latin American identity and its relationship to global culture. (Nicolas Shumway/Tomas Rivera, Dir. Institute Latin-Am Studies/Regents Prof Spanish-Am Lit University Of Texas At Austin)

A unique collection of essays that explores hitherto unexamined terrain: not Latin America as the West's other, but the West as Latin America's other. These studies of Latin American travelers and Latin American exile communities furnish both scholars and students with a pioneering agenda of topics to further ponder and research. (Mauricio Tenorio Trillo, Associate Professor of History, University of Texas - Austin)

An essential book for anyone interested in Latin American identity and its relationship to global culture. (British Bulletin of Publications on Latin America, the Caribbean, Portugal and Spain)
