Illuminations: Cultural Formations of The Americas

Editors: John Beverley and Sara Castro-Klar?n

This series features cutting-edge books on Latin American and inter-American societies, histories, and cultures that offer new perspectives from postcolonial, subaltern, feminist, and cultural studies. The series concerns itself, above all, with the historical sedimentation and genealogies of Latin American cultural practices and institutions. In highlighting cultural formations of the Americas, it aims to represent work that not only is national in focus, but also crosses regions and continents, encompassing the spatial relations of Atlantic studies, of precolonial or prenational territoriality, and of U.S. Latino and other diasporic cultures.
