Abstract: This mixed method research accomplished a literature review about acculturation on the earlier The American Journal of Sociology. The word acculturation scarcely appeared. However, topics related to acculturation were usual, i.e., race, immigration, colonial, intercultural influence, and still gender. Assimilation, multicultural and fusion works appeared, and the pervasive was the multicultural model. The research found out that the multicultural model was grounded in the 19th century. Multiculturalism had its roots on the liberal WASP culture. As Herbert Spencer, the journal often praised minimal intercultural contact in order to achieve maintenance and cultural diversity. The pervasive attitude wanted cultural adaptation with cultural maintenance, and, at the same time, it vindicated the WASP cultural superiority. Integration of differentiated categories of thought, races, genders, and migrants were organized mainly by progress, competition, and social dominance narratives, and it impaired the culture of the separated but equal.
Translated abstract: Este estudo aplicou o método misto e realizou uma revisão da literatura acerca da aculturação, de 1895 a 1924, no American Journal of Sociology. A palavra aculturação apareceu raramente. Contudo, problemáticas relacionadas com a aculturação foram usuais, por exemplo, raça, imigração, colonização, influência intercultural e ainda o género. Artigos dos modelos da assimilação, fusão e multicultural apareceram, sendo que os multiculturais foram os dominantes. A investigação mostrou que o modelo multicultural assenta no século dezanove e na cultura liberal WASP. Tal como Herbert Spencer, o jornal, usualmente, preferiu o contacto intercultural mínimo para alcançar a manutenção e a diversidade culturais. A atitude dominante preferia a adaptação com manutenção cultural e, ao mesmo tempo, justificava a superioridade WASP. A integração das categorias de pensamento diferenciadas como raças, géneros e migrantes foram organizadas, sobretudo, pelas narrativas do progresso, competição e domínio social, sendo que estes comprometeram a cultura do separados mas iguais
Este estudio aplicó el método mixto y realizó una revisión de la literatura acerca de la acuilturación desde 1895 a 1924 en el American Journal de Sociología. La palabra aculturación apareció d emanera escasa. Aun así, problemáticas relacionadas con la aculturación fueron comunes, por ejemplo: raza, inmigración, colonización, influencia intercultural e incluso género. Aparecieron artículos sobre modelos de asimilación, fusión y multiculturalismo, siendo los de multiculturalismo los dominantes. La investigación mostró que el modelo intercultural se asienta en el S. XIX y en la cultura liberal WASP. AL igual que Herbert Spencer el Jornal, d emanera general, prefirió un contacto intercultural mínimo para alcanzar el mantenimiento y la diversidad culturales. La actitud dominante prefería la adaptación para el mantenimiento de las culturas y, al mismo tiempo, justificaba la superioridad WASP. La integración de categorías de pensamiento diferenciadas comoi razas, géneros y migrantes fueron organizadas, sobre todo, por las narrativas del progreso y del dominio social, siendo un compromiso el mantener separadas las culturas.
