The Latino Continuum and the Nineteenth-Century Americas

Literature, Translation, and Historiography

Carmen Lamas

Oxford Studies in American Literary History

  • Demonstrates how Latinos have been integral to US and Latin American literature and history since the early nineteenth century.
  • Shows how Latina/o literature and Latinx studies more broadly do not serve as a bridge between the fields of American and Latin American studies but reveal instead their fundamental interdependence, politically, socially, culturally, and aesthetically with the Latina/o experience and culture.
  • Examines how Cuban literature and the experience of Afro Latina/os are deeply imbricated in the Latina/o experience.
