Contemporary Chicana Literature:

(Re)Writing the Maternal Script
Cristina Herrera
ISBN: 9781604978759

Performance, Theatre, and Society in Contemporary Nicaragua:

Spectacles of Gender, Sexuality, and Marginality
Alberto Guevara
ISBN: 9781604978612

Although there has been some excellent academic research focusing on performance or/and theatre in Nicaragua, such scholarship seldom attends to the very important connections between daily staged public social acts and local, national/global politics that deal directly and indirectly with marginalized social/cultural landscapes in this country. This book fills the gap by examining the connections between Nicaragua’s marginalized landscapes and bodies, between social/political visibility and invisibility, and the relationship between social abandonment and social encompassment in the nation.
