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.

The Latin American Identity and the African Diaspora:

Ethnogenesis in Context
Antonio Olliz Boyd
ISBN: 9781604977042

"The author's analysis offers a new way to approach critical race theory.... Affords readers a view of the diaspora that is broader and more inclusive than previous studies.While it is a necessary text for all institutional libraries, it would also make a valuable addition to the personal library of any scholar in History, Latin American or African Diaspora, or New World, Cultural, Ethnic and Racial Studies. It could appropriately be a required text for students in any of these fields." - New West Indian Guide Read More..

Public Memory of Slavery:

Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic
Ana Lucia Araujo
ISBN: 9781604977141

"An important and provocative work. No other study so thoroughly chronicles the fraught and ambiguous history of memorializing slavery in the South Atlantic. Araujo’s ability to ‘read’ multiple sources – both discursive and non-discursive – makes the book truly interdisciplinary in scope. It will be a crucial starting point for all future studies of slavery and memory in Benin and Brazil." – James H. Sweet, Journal of African History Read More..
