Exits from the Labyrinth

This chapter explains the peasant culture in a community context. It also discusses the “traditional” peasant community ideology. It then provides the description of peasant culture when it is unharnessed from the peasant community in core urban contexts and in processes of aperture of the peasant periphery. The cultural transformations are all about the workings of the peasant ideological complex in transformed social contexts. There are two useful ways of defining a core/periphery structure in Morelos regional culture: one is through the nature of the links with the regional hegemonic culture, another is by proximity to any of the coherent class-cultural poles of regional culture. The second way of conceiving the Morelos cultural core/periphery structure is in relation to proximity to poles of cultural coherence. These two ways of defining the regional core/periphery structure are mutually complementary and of equal analytical import.

Keywords:   peasant culture, peasant community ideology, peasant periphery, Morelos, regional core, periphery structure
