New Book: “Términos críticos en el pensamiento caribeño y latinoamericano”


Términos críticos en el pensamiento caribeño y latinoamericano: trayectoria histórica e institucional (Revista de Crítica Literaria Latinoamericana, 2018) is a particularly useful anthology of essays on critical terms in Caribbean and Latin American thought and their historical and institutional contexts. Edited by Yolanda Martínez-San Miguel, Ben Sifuentes-Jáuregui, and Marisa Belausteguigoitia, and previously published in English—Critical Terms in Caribbean and Latin American Thought: Historical and Institutional Trajectories (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016)—this undertaking was originally conceived as a two-part project, presenting the collection in English first, and following it with the Spanish-language version to provide accessibility to a broader audience.

Debra A. Castillo (Emerson Hinchliff Professor of Hispanic Studies, Cornell University) describes the collection: This transnational tour (and tour de force) around key concepts fosters urgent dialogues and friendly tussles, while putting Latin America into sharp focus in contemporary theoretical debates. This book challenges us to think more deeply and complexly about our use and misuse of theory. It is soon to be an essential book in all our classrooms.
