Gurba, Myriam. Painting Their Portraits in Winter: Short Stories. San Francisco: Manic D Press, 2015.

I saw a presentation on the title story of this collection at MLA two weeks ago and decided to check it out because of its speculative nature.

Loveless, Natalie, ed. Knowings and Knots: Methodologies and Ecologies in Research-creation. Edmonton: University of Alberta Press, 2020.

I read Loveless’s book on research-creation, How to Make Art at the End of the World, about six months ago and loved it, so I pre-ordered this edited collection on the subject. It arrived last week.

Wald, Sarah D., David J. Vázquez, Priscilla Solis Ybarra, and Sarah Jaquette Ray, eds. Latinx Environmentalisms: Place, Justice, and the Decolonial. Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 2019.

I heard Priscilla Solis Ybarra speak at MLA and she mentioned that this collection had just come out. It is especially timely considering the crises at the U.S.-Mexico border and in Puerto Rico that have been exacerbated by the Orange One’s administration.

Loveless, Natalie. How to Make Art at the End of the World: A Manifesto for Research-Creation. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2019.

I received an advertisement about this book from the publisher and ordered it from them immediately because the concept of “research-creation,” a term that I had not encountered before, is similar to the hybrid writing I have been doing over the past several years.

Sánchez Korrol, Virginia E. From Colonia to Community: The History of Puerto Ricans in New York City. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1994.

Sánchez Korrol, Virginia E., and Pedro Juan Hernández. Pioneros II: Puerto Ricans in New York City, 1948-1998. Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, 2010.

I continue to explore my roots as a Nuyorican, and bought these two books to that end. I purchased them both from abebooks.com.
