Everynight life : culture and dance in Latin/o America

Celeste Fraser Delgado and José Esteban Muñoz, editors

The function of dance in Latin American culture is the focus of the essays collected in Everynight Life. The contributors interpret how Latin culture expresses itself through dance, approaching the material from the varying perspectives of literary, cultural, dance, performance, queer, and feminist studies. Viewing dance as privileged sites of identity formation and cultural resistance in Latin America, Everynight Life translates the motion of bodies into speech, and the gestures of dance into a provocative socio-political grammar. This anthology looks at many modes of dance - including salsa, merengue, cumbia, rumba, mambo, tango, samba, and norte - as models for the interplay of cultural memory and regional conflict. Barbara Browning's essay on capoeira, for instance, demonstrates how dance has been used as a literal form of resistance, while Jose Piedra explores the meanings conveyed by women of color dancing the rumba. Pieces such as Gustavo Perez Formates "I Came, I Saw, I Conga'd" and Jorge Salessi's "Medics, Crooks, and Tango Queens" illustrate the lively scope of this volume's subject matter. Everynight Life will interest students and scholars of Latin American, performance, and cultural studies. Contributors. Barbara Browning, Celeste Fraser Delgado, Jane C. Desmond, Mayra Santos Febres, Juan Carlos Quintero Herencia, Josh Kun, Ana M. L-pez, Jose Esteban Mu-oz, Jose Piedra, Gustavo Perez F'rmat, Augusto C. Puleo, David Roman, Jorge Salessi, and Alberto Sandoval.
