About the Book

These twelve pieces explore the meaning of “Nuestra América” – our America – as José Marti posited in his well-known essay on U.S. expansionism and imperialistic ploys. Scholars from the U.S. and abroad explore the “contact zones” that originated from the clash and/or syntheses between the U.S. and Latin America. Divided into four sections, this collection focuses on themes suck as “Contesting the Canon,” “Mapping Latino Voices in the United States,” “Postcoloniality in Autobiography” and “Nationalism in Contact Zones”.
