Cultural Production in the Global, Digital Age
"This is an excellent book on a very interesting topic. It is a well-conceived, well-research, and well-written study covering a number of very significant poets in the Spanish-speaking world. Good scholarly books on poetry are rare. Good books on Hispanic poetry, transatlantic in content, and with a superb combination of textual analysis and theoretical reflection are even rarer, and this one belongs to the latter category." – Juan Egea, Professor of Spanish , University of Wisconsin-Madison
Manning an Empire in the Long Nineteenth Century, 1800–1914
“This book displays a masterful command of the history of the British
Empire during the period. It encompasses a wide range of detail from the
complex history of British imperialism and combines this with a systematic
analysis of subordinate categories and issues. The white settlement colonies
(future dominions) of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa
are all dealt with here, as is also British India, Sub-Saharan Africa, the West
Indies Southeast Asia, and Oceania. This monumental study has a wide
sweep both over chronological time and geographically.” – Raymond E. Dumett, Purdue University

This is the first book in English to focus on African heritage and public memory of slavery in Brazil and Angola. This interdisciplinary study examines visual images, dance, music, oral accounts, museum exhibitions, artifacts, monuments, festivals, and others forms of commemoration to illuminate the social and cultural dynamics that over the last twenty years have propelled––or prevented––the visibility of African heritage (and its Atlantic slave trade legacy) in the South Atlantic region.
