📝Trans acting Book Synopsis : This collection offer a series of new essays authored by leading scholars of Latin American and U.S. Latino theater as well as the performance script Mexterminator vs. The Global Predator, written by Guillermo Gomez-Pena. The fourteen essays focus on contemporary Latin American and U.S. Latino plays and performances and challenge the meanings of genre, gender, race, cultural identity, and performance itself in the context of globalization and shifting borders. The concept of trans/acting, a term that connotes negotiation and/or exchange, provides the framework for essays that include such topics as tansculturation, transnationalism, transgender, transgenre, translation, and adaptation. These individual studies of contemporary theater and performance arts are complimented by trans/actor Gomez-Pena's Mexterminator vs. The Global Predator, a striking transgressive script that underscores the performance nature of territorial and symbolic border crossings. Jacqueline Bixler is Alumni Distinguished Professor of Spanish at Virginia Tech. Laurietz Seda is Associate Professor of Spanish at the University of Connecticut-Storrs.

📝The Family Album Book Synopsis : This book is an examination of the use of the family album in contemporary Spanish culture. Through the analysis of films, narratives, painting, and a photographic exhibition produced from the end of Franco's dictatorship to the present, Kim interrogates how the family album serves as a critical instrument to reflect on the treatment of the past in contemporary Spain, the recuperation of repressed identities, nostalgia for collective memory symptomatic of the cultural discontent with the erosion of a national boundary due to globalization and the increasing claim of diversity, and ethical concerns for immigration. This study explores a broad range of works by canonical as well as less studied writers and artists, including Juan Goytisolo, Carlos Saura, and Marta Balletbo-Coll. Yeon-Soo Kim is Assistant Professor of Spanish at Rutgers University.

📝Juan Goytisolo and the Politics of Contagion Book Synopsis : Juan Goytisolo is arguably Spain's foremost contemporary novelist. This book is one of the few major studies in English to examine all of his mature works, from "Senas de identidad" in 1966 to "Las semanas del jardin", published in 1997. It focuses on the interface between the thematic content of the novels and its formal expression, viewing this as the crucial nexus of their meaning. Goytisolo's writing is, in his own words, a commitment of myself for a transformation of the world. "The Poetics of Contagion" dissects the nature of the relationship between writer and reader to show how Goytisolo's political commitment is reflected in his work.

📝Cultural Encounters in Contemporary Spain Book Synopsis : This book explores how Clara Janes's poetry mediates competing religious and cultural worldviews in the context of contemporary Spain, a geo-political region that is experiencing new relationships as a member of the European Union and as a destination for immigrants from diverse cultural and linguistic groups. Janes combines aesthetic innovation with a keen interest in cultural forms from outside the traditional boundaries of the West, making her poetry particularly suited for a study of the changing relationships in Spain between the West and its eastern or Oriental others. Previous critical studies have focused on feminist approaches to Janes's oeuvre. This study seeks to expand those discussions through an analysis of the aesthetics of cultural otherness (rather than simply gendered otherness) within Janes's prolific literary production. The first chapter addresses one of Janes's earliest cross-cultural texts, Kampa (1986), which voices a literary encounter between a Spanish poetic speaker and the renowned Czech poet Vladimir Holan. Kampa includes a musical and lyrical composition performed on tape, and its unconventional musical mode offers an alternative to divisions between western and non-western literary and musical forms. The second chapter analyzes Divan del opalo de fuego (O la leyenda de Layla y Machnun) (1996), a text that brings a famous Islamic legend about unification into the Spanish literary tradition for the first time. The legend originated in ancient Bedouin poetry, and is as famous in the Islamic world as Romeo and Juliet is in the West. Janes's Divan recalls the writings of San Juan de la Cruz and Petrarch, while singing the praises of Islamic mystical forms. The work thus brings diverse literary and cultural traditions into dialogue. Janes's incorporation of Islamic mystical forms is once again evident in the third chapter, dedicated to Los secretos del bosque (2002), but Islamic forms are here set alongside Jewish, Christian, and Hindu philosophical and religious traditions. The text follows the stages of an alchemical process, and the combination of scientific, literary, and religious discourse highlights the intricate cultural relationships at the heart of Spain's and Janes's literary production. The final chapter considers the juxtapositions of western and eastern philosophical traditions in Janes's most recent book of visual poetry, Espacios translucidos (2007). The work combines quotations from diverse historical and cultural regions, photographs filled with signs, and mystical language. Several signs that Janes mentions in the introduction (such as hieroglyphics and labyrinths) recall distant cultures and structures of belief that require (and have instigated) monumental efforts to "read." In a similar way, the quotations, modified photographs, and mystical poetry in Espacios translucidos exhibit an "otherness" that encourages new approaches to signs, cultural difference, and the self.

📝The Language of Evaluation Book Synopsis : This study seeks to demonstrate that throughout centuries of re-creation, linguistic devices have been used to support both the production and the reproduction of the" romances." On the basis of this demonstration, it is argued that it is time to recognize these devices as evaluators and to include a discussion of evaluative mechanisms in the study of the Romancero tradition.
