The annual meeting of the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) took place in San Juan, Puerto Rico this year. Beachy attire was all over, and the Gran Baile took place by the pool. But there were still big crowds for the book exhibit. As always we enjoyed meeting our authors and selling their books at a great conference discount.
Here is Nancy Van Deusen with her new book Global Indios: The Indigenous Struggle for Justice in Sixteenth-Century Spain. It was very popular and sold out before the end of the conference.
Ana María Ochoa Gautier’s book Aurality: Listening and Knowledge in Nineteenth-Century Colombia also sold out before the end of the conference.
Here is Miguel Carter, editor of Challenging Social Inequality: The Landless Rural Workers Movement and Agrarian Reform in Brazil.
Some of our authors took the time to do short videos discussing their work.
Yeidy Rivero, author of Broadcasting Modernity: Cuban Commercial Television,1950-1960.
John Collins, author of Revolt of the Saints: Memory and Redemption in the Twilight of Brazilian Racial Democracy.
Eileen J. Suárez Findlay, author of We Are Left without a Father Here: Masculinity, Domesticity, and Migration in Postwar Puerto Rico.
Robert M. Buffington, author of A Sentimental Education for the Working Man: The Mexico City Penny Press, 1900-1910.
Paulo Drinot, co-editor (with Alan Knight) of The Great Depression in Latin America.
