Books Acquired Recently

Dávila, Arlene. Latinx Art: Artists, Markets, and Politics. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2020.

I have enjoyed some of Dávila’s previous work in Latinx Studies, and know very little about Latinx art, so decided to buy this book to educate myself further.

Muñoz, José Esteban. The Sense of Brown. Edited by Joshua Chambers-Letson and Tavia Nyong’o. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2020.

Muñoz is perhaps the most important theorist of queer Latinidad, an author whose work I automatically buy regardless of its subject. The Sense of Brown is his last book, published posthumously.

Swarstad Johnson, Julie, and Christopher Cokinos, eds. Beyond Earth’s Edge: The Poetry of Spaceflight. Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 2020.

Swarstad Johnson has quickly established herself as an important Mennonite poet in the past few years, and thus I bought this book.
