Hybrid Americas: Contacts, Contrasts, and Confluences in New World Literatures and Cultures
Copublished by LIT Verlag (Münster, Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna, London) and Bilingual Review Press, the Inter-American Perspectives/Perspectivas interamericanas series explores connections among North, Central, and South American culture, literature, media, language, history, society, and politics. Intercultural issues and their regional, national, and hemispheric contexts are of particular interest. The series seeks to promote transnational approaches to the Americas or any of their parts and to stimulate discussion on perspective.
Hybrid Americas: Contacts, Contrasts, and Confluences in New World Literatures and Cultures includes 22 essays that examine past and present cultural interrelations and interdependences in the Americas, highlighting regional, national, and transnational contacts in the New World; raising awareness of the contrasts that separate American cultures; and examining the confluences of New World issues, traditions, and practices. This collection increases our theoretical understanding of cultural hybridity and demonstrates that it is by no means a recent phenomenon in the Americas.
