Editorial Reviews


Winner, Lambda Literary Award for LGBT Studies, 2013
(Lambda Literary Awards)

Special Citation: The Society of Dance History Scholars de la Torre Bueno Prize, 2012
(SDHS de la Torre Bueno)

"Performing Queer Latinidad is an excellent and important book, whose theoretical interventions are lucid, poetic, and accessible, making it appropriate for advanced scholars and undergraduate students alike."
---MELUS (Patricia Ybarra MELUS) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

"Creatively and rigorously investigates the copresence of queerness, class, gender, ethnicity, country of origin, and history in bracing, highly nuanced examinations of the micropractices of queer Latina/-o performance. The analyses powerfully and compellingly demonstrate the essential roles performance plays in the construction and potency of a diverse, generative public sphere: as a way to forge solidarities, explore liberatory possibilities, and choreograph resistance . . . a significant contribution to dance, performance, and theatre studies, to critical ethnography, and to transnational American and queer studies." 
--Judith Hamera, Texas A&M University

"Centerstaging an intersectionality not explored until now,Performing Queer Latinidad inaugurates a paradigm shift in Latina/o, Queer, and Dance Studies . . . In capturing historically situated bodies that fleetingly occupy the dance floor in pleasure, take over the streets in protest, and perform identity in their fierce queer cultural acts of survival and celebration, the author allows us to reconsider how to critically map everyday material practices, lived embodied experience, and affective expressions of convivencia diaria. It is a magisterial piece of work. Ahora Sí Bailamos!" 
--Alberto Sandoval-Sánchez, Mount Holyoke College
