Abstract and Keywords
This article is divided into two halves: the first offers nineteen theses on the role of topography in the shaping of Hispanic identity in general and Latinidad in particular; and the second is a rumination on the impact of geography on identity. The style of each of these parts is deliberately dissimilar yet they are built through continuities. The contributions of Oswald de Andrade, Gloria Anzaldúa, Walter Benjamin, Jorge Luis Borges, Álvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca, José Hernández, Claude Lévi-Strauss, José Ortega y Gasset, Octavio Paz, José Enrique Rodó, Juan Rulfo, and José Vasconcelos are placed in dialogue and concepts like Mestizaje and Tropicalismo are considered.
