THE EMERGENCE OF CANARIAN NATIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS The research of the origins and the construction of a historical-mythical past and present in the construction of nationalism is present in the Canarian nationalist movements, which always claim a biological continuity between the pre-colonial and the current Canarian population. In order to understand how Canary nationalism came into historical being, in what ways its meaning has changed over time, and why, today, it commands such profound emotional legitimacy (Anderson 1983, 4), it is fundamental to look at the sociocultural context of that particular time and space. The Canarian national consciousness started to emerge during the years of the Franco dictatorship which was organized around a centralist model of the state. Especially the strong state bureaucracy and the promotion of a spanish national identity triggered Canarians to ask themselves how decisions taken in Madrid could affect Canarian Islands. In fact, Canarians used to always have a kind of autonomous form of government.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s novel, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, bring attention to many factors in the Colombian culture that relate to multiple themes. One of the most prominent themes in the novel would be collective responsibility. As a person reads the novel they would notice how collective responsibility ties in with the many different aspects of Colombian culture and helps the other themes to show this along. Gabriel connects these different themes seamlessly to the point where they are hard to pick out. However, as mentioned before as the most prominent theme, collective responsibility was the most distinguishable.
There, labour was needed and labour was available but in different places. The need for labour sprang from the inherent demographic difference between the Americas and South Asia, from the impact of European expansion and from the specific labor tasks that the colonists required. The Atlantic slave trade paid much attention to the role of the slave trade in British North America and West Indian colonies. According to Kenneth Morgan (2007: 18) “the transatlantic slave trade was an important business enterprise within the British Empire for nearly a century and a half, from the restoration of the Stuart monarchy in 1660 until the trade was abolished in 1807”. In this period the slave trade and its capital turnover made a substantial contribution to the economic development of the British Empire.
The Spanish Empire The Spanish Empire is one of the largest empires to be established in history. It stretched over many continents and had many islands. Spain expanded its territories over four centuries, starting in 1492 and ending in 1892. One of the influences from the Spanish Empire today is that the United States was founded under Spanish control. The motivating force for Spanish exploration, both on land and overseas, was the spread of Catholicism and the unearthing of natural resources and precious metals such as gold and silver by taking over other empires such as the Aztecs and Incas.
The settlers and the native people of America have contributed a good collection of books which constitute the body of American Literature. Any book written will register the life style of people, their food habits, culture, beliefs, system of education followed, the nature of children and their history. The books written by the writers from the United States of America have registered the expectations, hopes, future predictions along with warnings their fear for degeneration of moralities and the impacts of Industrial revolutions.

Chronicle of a Death Foretold, is heavily based around Colombian culture. This is made apparent throughout the novel with aspects of family honor and religion reoccurring throughout the novel. To what extent does culture influence the novel and how would it differ from other countries. The United States, China and Iran vary immensely in relation to Colombia but where do they share similarities and when do they differ. North American (NA) culture could be considered as a control of sorts with its massive combination of cultures, otherwise called a melting pot.
Over the course of history, the Caribbean has been through a lot of stages from slavery, colonialism come right down to independence and post-independence. With slavery, the blacks were introduced, then we have the Europeans and of course the Indians came with the indenture ship program. Since the Caribbean has such a diverse array of cultures and ethnic groups, it is expected that these groups will leave their own impact on the society as a whole. To account for the influence and analyze the impact these different ethnic groups have M.G Smith sought to understand how these groups live together in a society that is deeply ‘plural’. In this paper I will seek to analyze the contribution the plural society model has made in understanding the social structure of the Caribbean.

Augustine was an important development in the history of Florida, but even more important than the settlement itself was the European culture it helped integrate into the largely Native American-populated Florida. Menéndez de Avilés, hailing from Spain, brought with him the Spanish language along with the Catholic religion into Florida (“Latino American Timeline.”). Furthermore, future Florida leadership, for around the next two centuries, would continue to be of Spanish descent (“List of Colonial Governors of Florida.”). As a result of this, Catholicism and the Spanish language were deep-rooted in Florida’s culture back then, and in a way, they still largely are
