In The Borders of Dominicanidad Lorgia García-Peña explores the ways official narratives and histories have been projected onto racialized Dominican bodies as a means of sustaining the nation's borders. García-Peña constructs a genealogy of dominicanidad that highlights how Afro-Dominicans, ethnic Haitians, and Dominicans living abroad have contested these dominant narratives and their violent, silencing, and exclusionary effects. Centering the role of U.S. imperialism in drawing racial borders between Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the United States, she analyzes musical, visual, artistic, and literary representations of foundational moments in the history of the Dominican Republic: the murder of three girls and their father in 1822; the criminalization of Afro-religious practice during the U.S. occupation between 1916 and 1924; the massacre of more than 20,000 people on the Dominican-Haitian border in 1937; and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. García-Peña also considers the contemporary emergence of a broader Dominican consciousness among artists and intellectuals that offers alternative perspectives to questions of identity as well as the means to make audible the voices of long-silenced Dominicans.

Highlights the histories and cultural expressions of the Dominican people Using a blend of historical and literary analysis, Colonial Phantoms reveals how Western discourses have ghosted—miscategorized or erased—the Dominican Republic since the nineteenth century despite its central place in the architecture of the Americas. Through a variety of Dominican cultural texts, from literature to public monuments to musical performance, it illuminates the Dominican quest for legibility and resistance. Dixa Ramírez places the Dominican people and Dominican expressive culture and history at the forefront of an insightful investigation of colonial modernity across the Americas and the African diaspora. In the process, she untangles the forms of free black subjectivity that developed on the island. From the nineteenth century national Dominican poet Salomé Ureña to the diasporic writings of Julia Alvarez, Chiqui Vicioso, and Junot Díaz, Ramírez considers the roles that migration, knowledge production, and international divisions of labor have played in the changing cultural expression of Dominican identity. In doing so, Colonial Phantoms demonstrates how the centrality of gender, race, and class in the nationalisms and imperialisms of the West have profoundly impacted the lives of Dominicans. Ultimately, Ramírez considers how the Dominican people negotiate being left out of Western imaginaries and the new modes of resistance they have carefully crafted in response.

Fluid Bodies traces the intersections of global movement with transgender and queer identities from authors and artists of the Hispanic Caribbean. Utilizing the theme of fluidity and travel, Fluid Bodies analyzes novels, graphic novels, theatre, and performance art. These works demonstrate how transgender and queer bodies redefine belonging, particularly national belonging, through global movement and community making practices. Through these genres, the text follows the movement of transgender and queer identities from textual spaces to spaces of the body. The gradual movement from text to body—as it occurs in these genres—demonstrates the variety of representational strategies that dismantle binary readings of gender, sexuality, and nationality. Transgender visibility is a pressing social issue, and today’s transgender moment will be a social and political necessity for years to come. Of particular importance are representations of transgender and/or queer people of color. The field of transgender representation is growing, and Fluid Bodies adds to the visibility of transgender and queer identity from the Hispanic Caribbean. By investigating the relationship between novels, graphic novels, theatre, and performance art, Fluid Bodies emphasizes how each work plays on and against the separation of language and the body, and how Hispanic Caribbean authors and artists represent transgender and queer identity in order to redefine cultural and national belonging in various geographic spaces.

Bachata—a guitar-based romantic music that debuted in Santo Domingo’s urban shantytowns in the 1960s—is today one of the hottest Latin genres. Still, fans and musicians have not forgotten the social stigma the genre carried for decades. This book interweaves bachata’s history and development with the socio-political context of Dominican identity. The author argues that its early disfavor resulted from the political climate of its origins and ties between class and race, and proposes that its ultimate acceptance as a symbol of Dominican identity arose from its innovations, the growth of the lower class, and a devoted following among Dominican migrants. La bachata—una música de guitarra que se estrenó en los barrios populares de Santo Domingo en los años 60—hoy, es uno de los géneros latinos más populares. No obstante, sus aficionados y sus exponentes recuerdan el estigma social asociado que conllevó por décadas. Este libro entreteje la historia y el desarrollo de la bachata con el contexto socio-político de la identidad dominicana. La autora plantea que su desaprobación temprana resultó del clima político en que nació y los vínculos entre raza y clase social. Propone que su aceptación final como símbolo de identidad dominicana surge de sus innovaciones, el crecimiento de la clase baja y sus seguidores leales entre los migrantes dominicanos.

»Die Geschichte meines Lebens beginnt mit der Geschichte meines Landes«, so beginnt die Erzählung um Salomé Ureña. Als Salomé 1870 beginnt, Gedichte über ihr Land zu schreiben, kommt dies einer Revolution gleich. Sie heiratet den unsteten Pancho, um dessen Liebe sie lange kämpfen musste, kurze Zeit später stirbt Salomé schwer lungenkrank und lässt ihre dreijährige Tochter Camila zurück. Jahre später versucht Camila das Schicksal ihrer berühmten und unglücklichen Mutter zu rekonstruieren. Julia Alvarez verknüpft die Biografien zweier engagierter Frauen zu einer poetischen Familiensaga: Das dramatische Leben der karibischen Dichterin Salomé Ureña und das ihrer Tochter Camila, die sich im Exil auf die Suche nach den Beweggründen der geliebten Mutter macht.

Der brasilianische Bundesstaat Rio Grande do Sul galt in der deutschen Kolonialdebatte im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert als eines der wichtigsten Siedlungsgebiete für Deutsche. Private Vereine, Kirchen und Publizisten versuchten, die dort lebenden Einwanderer für deutsche Interessen nutzbar zu machen und ihr sogenanntes ,Deutschtum' zu erhalten. Die vorliegende Studie zeigt unter Rückgriff auf globalgeschichtliche, postkoloniale und mikrogeschichtliche Perspektiven, dass es sich um global zirkulierende Vorstellungen und Praktiken handelte, die vor Ort allerdings zu Konflikten mit dem brasilianischen Staat und den Auswanderern führten. Die Diskurse scheiterten letztlich darin, diese zu idealisierten ,Deutschen' zu machen und sie für die deutsche Kolonialpolitik zu instrumentalisieren.
