An attempt to grapple with the root colonizer/colonized relationship of my Mexican/Spanish identity through an exploration of the Spanish language. (Part 1)
To initiate this project, I divided my research of the Spanish language into three periods of time: precolonial, colonial, and postcolonial. This culminated in a three-part book.
The first two sections consist of excerpts from essays that address aspects of the Spanish language during the pre/colonial eras. The third section contains interviews I conducted with my parents about their relationship with the language and colonialism. The design system of this two-fold book allows the content to be read in either English or Spanish seamlessly.
