MEDIA REVIEWS

"American PietAs offers a compelling analysis of racialized concepts of motherhood in American narratives of identity, history, and memory. Looking at both the construction of whiteness and racial otherness, Ruby C. Tapia attends to the intersections of race and gender in visual representations of national subjectivity. This is an extremely important intervention that interrogates, rather than simply references, the centrality of racialized motherhood to national identities." --Wendy Kozol, Oberlin College

"Ruby C. Tapia combines historical depth with subtle theoretical sophistication in her close readings of contemporary visual texts. Rarely are scholars able to read contemporary texts with such nuance and sustained insight, illuminating their wide-ranging importance in processes of self-identification and the production of national belonging." Shawn Michelle Smith, School of the Art Institute of Chicago"
