MEDIA REVIEWS

"In their very readable collection The Un/Making of Latina/o Citizenship: Culture, Politics and Aesthetics, Hernandez and Rodriguez y Gibson have compiled a list of scholars who are innovative thinkers, insightful academicians, and passionate writers unafraid to examine, to rethink the shifting and fluidity of what is meant, or not, by Latinidad. They discuss our complicated cultural currency from past to potential, traveling from the academic theory to everyday politics, from literature to media, holding together complete oppositions while reexamining their useful convergences. As an artist, I feel I can finally read theoretical frameworks that make sense to me, that excite me, that discomfort me, that reclaim a language ripe with metaphor and realm of cultural power. This collection should be on the bookshelf of every scholar and artist whose has been given the task - whether in art as in theory - to decolonize the imaginary, one word at a time." - Helena Maria Viramontes, Professor of English, Cornell University, USA
