Summary
  • " War Echoes examines how Latina/o cultural production has engaged with U.S. militarism in the post-Viet Nam era. Analyzing literature alongside film, memoir, and activism, Ariana E. Vigil highlights the productive interplay among social, political, and cultural movements while exploring Latina/o responses to U.S. intervention in Central America and the Middle East. These responses evolved over the course of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries--from support for anti-imperial war, as seen in Alejandro Murguia's Southern Front, to the disavowal of all war articulated in works such as Demetria Martinez's Mother Tongue and Camilo Mejia's Road from Ar Ramadi. With a focus on how issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality intersect and are impacted by war and militarization, War Echoes illustrates how this country's bellicose foreign policies have played an integral part in shaping U.S. Latina/o culture and identity and given rise to the creation of works that recognize how militarized violence and values, such as patriarchy, hierarchy, and obedience, are both enacted in domestic spheres and propagated abroad. "--
  • "War Echoes specifically argues for the place of warfare in the development and articulation of transnational identities; the book demonstrates how U.S. Latina/o opposition to U.S. military intervention catalyzed new kinds of social, cultural and political representations and expressions. In foregrounding the role of militarism, the project contributes a much needed perspective to an understanding of the shape and trajectory of U.S. Latina/o art and activism. The project illustrates how political commitments - and specifically movements opposed to military intervention - played a significant role in the development of U.S. Latina/o cultural production and the articulation of U.S. Latina/o identity. Finally, War Echoes illustrates and argues for the importance of issues of race, class, gender and sexuality as they intersect with and are impacted by war and militarization"--
