  • Stuck with Tourism: Space, Power, and Labor in Contemporary Yucatán by
           Matilde Córdoba Azcárate (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Tourism has long been seen as anything but serious in public (and often academic) spheres. However, this perception of tourism has started to falter in recent years. Since the mid-2010s, residents of major European urban tourism destinations, from Amsterdam to Venice, have complained about too many tourists, “touristification” of infrastructure, environmental degradation from tourist activities, and anti-social tourist behaviors that contribute to a declining quality of life. These complaints, expressed in graffiti, vandalism, and even large-scale protests, have been magnified in mass media reports. Yet, this is neither where the story begins nor where it ends. Places worldwide have been exploited for tourism, but ... Read More

  • Tropical Travels: Brazilian popular performance, transnational encounters,
           and the construction of race by Lisa Shaw (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Tropical travels covers a lot of ground historically and geographically by charting the transnational circulations of Brazilian popular performance from the time of abolition in 1888, up until the 1950s. In addition to fields such as cultural studies, history, theatre, performing arts, critical race studies, and Latin American and Africana studies, Latin American(ist) geographers can add this book to a repertoire of case studies that address race and racism, power, and popular performance in a critical transnational context. Exploring transnational networks of cultural production between Brazil, Portugal, France, Argentina, and the United States, among other countries, the book considers how perceptions of race ...

  • Where Caciques and Mapmakers Met: Border Making in Eighteenth-Century
           South America by Jeffrey Alan Erbig Jr (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The demarcation of indigenous territories remains central in the ever-urgent struggles for human rights and social-environmental justice in Latin America and beyond. Geographers and others interested in the social processes of borders and demarcation will find much to learn from Jeffrey Alan Erbig Jr.’s book Where Caciques and Mapmakers Met. While this work focuses on historical processes of imperial border-making in the eighteenth century, its relevance for contemporary legal geographies, land rights, and Indigenous autonomy are undeniable. Providing a thoughtful origin story for colonial borders in Latin America, Erbig’s book analyzes the social construction of territories and geographies of knowledge production ... Read More

  • Palm Oil Diaspora: Afro-Brazilian Landscapes and Economies on Bahia’s
           Dendê Coast by Case Watkins (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Conventional economic geographic studies of supply and commodity chains often provide scant historical and cultural contexts. Case Watkins, in contrast, olympically serves up the story of palm oil’s journey from Africa to its insertion into Afro-Brazilian landscapes and livelihoods. Palm Oil Diaspora traces the transformation of northeastern Brazil’s colonial landscape where transatlantic commerce helped make a cultural economy for authentic African palm oil in Brazil, where Afro-Brazilians marshalled that trade for their economic and social mobility. In doing so, Bahia turns into an Atlantic entrepôt for South Atlantic trans-shipments and stocks of palm oil. This eloquently written tome clarifies how enslaved and ... Read More

      Abstract: In December 2018, the city of Valledupar, the capital of the Colombian department of Cesar, hosted a meeting to discuss the implementation of Colombia’s 2016 Peace Agreement (PA). In Cesar, as in many parts of the country, the main tool for implementing the PA is the local PDET, or Development Program with a Territorial Focus (Programa de Desarrollo con Enfoque Territorial). There are 170 PDETs across the country, all of which aim to support the territories most affected by violence, poverty, illegal economies, and institutional weakness in the wake of Colombia’s multidecadal social armed conflict.1 The focus of this particular meeting was the Integral Rural Reform (Reforma Rural Integral), which is outlined in ...

  • Conservation in the Frontier: Negotiating Ownerships of Nature at the
           Southern Mexican Border

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: During the past decade, the concept of frontier has been retheorized by various scholars who have considered its value in explaining transformations of power relations in the naturally rich peripheries of the Global South (e.g., Hall, 2002; Greenough & Lowenhaupt Tsing, 2003; Parker & Rodseth, 2005; Guyot, 2011; Peluso & Lund, 2013; Altenbernd & Young, 2014; Rasmussen & Lund, 2018; Thaler et al., 2019). Introduced by Frederick Jackson Turner (1893), the concept of frontier glorified the North American pioneer as a rugged, self-sufficient, colonizing settler conquering a free, pioneer land. The Turnerian frontier later came to be perceived as colonial and flawed, with its assumption of empty lands that were ... Read More

      Abstract: A police operation conducted on June 5, 2009, to evict thousands of protesters from the Fernando Belaúnde Terry Highway at the area known as the Devil’s Curve near the city of Bagua in the northwest of the Peruvian Amazon resulted in—according to official accounts—thirty-three dead, including twenty-three police officers and ten civilians (five of them Indigenous Awajún-Wampis), as well as one policeman missing and some 200 injured (Defensoría del Pueblo, 2009). Indigenous protesters were demanding that the Peruvian Congress repeal a dozen executive decrees that they believed were facilitating the division and commercialization of communal lands, thus threatening the integrity of Indigenous territories.

      Abstract: Political musicians from across Latin America and Europe gathered at the Casa de la Américas at the First Conference on Protest Song in Havana, Cuba in 1967. In this ground-breaking moment of international political-musical collaboration, roughly fifty artists from nearly twenty countries discussed the emerging movement of politically conscious music that would soon be known to the English-speaking world as Latin American New Song (Fairley, 1984, p. 107). This new genre, inspired by growing disillusionment with inequality and state repression resulting from Latin America’s legacy of colonial exploitation and persistent domination by foreign (largely U.S.) and domestic capitalists, was part of a broader wave of ...

      Abstract: With U.S. headlines typically focused on migrants moving north across the Mexico-U.S. border, southbound migrations receive limited media attention. Still, from time to time this southbound migration is featured in a popular news source, like The New York Times article identifying the present patterns of migration between Mexico and the United States as a “historic milestone,” a time when more Americans have been added to the population of Mexico than Mexicans have been added to the U.S. population (Cave, 2013, para. 7).1 More recently The Washington Post reported the number of U.S.-born residents in Mexico has increased fourfold since 1990 (Sheridan, 2019). Researchers have categorized these foreign residents as ... Read More

  • The Paradox of Culturally Useful Invasive Species: Southern Cattail (Typha

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Invasive species, or invasive alien species (International Union for the Conservation of Nature [IUCN], 2020), are non-native organisms often introduced by humans that exert a level of economic or ecological harm in their new environment (Ehrenfeld, 2010). Once introduced, they colonize the area and become naturalized by reproducing for several generations without human assistance. This process is achievable through the combination of the species’ competitiveness and adaptability to new environments (Radosevich et al., 1997). The economic impacts of terrestrial invasive species on a global scale are estimated to be in the billions of dollars per year (Olson, 2006). Pimentel et al. (2005) estimate their cost just in ...

      Abstract: Os protestos ocorridos no dia 11 de julho em Cuba geraram um sinal de alerta e uma onda de debates acalorados na esquerda internacional sobre os desafios da única revolução viva do continente latino-americano.Algumas leituras solidárias a Cuba, porém apressadas, se precipitaram ao rotular os cubanos que estiveram nas ruas no dia 11 como “mercenários de Miami”, “contrarrevolucionários” ou meros “agentes do imperialismo”. Segundo essa tese, os protestos foram parte de uma estratégia de desestabilização dos EUA contra o governo cubano que mobilizou segmentos anticomunistas da sociedade com aparatos da indústria cultural, slogans e hashtags nas redes sociais, configurando o cenário típico de uma revolução ...

  • The Environmental Violence of Soy Cultivation in the Brazilian Amazon

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: An area of great environmental complexity, inhabited by ancient traditional fishing communities and around 400 Afro-Brazilian (Quilombolas) families, is about to disappear (Locatelli, 2016). I refer to the region of Lago do Maicá (Santarém, Pará, Brazil), an area inhabited by about 1,500 families. Maicá is an ecological sanctuary, a natural cradle for unique species of aquatic fauna and Amazonian bird life. It was here, almost two centuries ago, that two leading British naturalists, Henry Walter Bates and Alfred Russel Wallace, spent three years studying animals and insects. Despite hardships, the men reveled in what they called the “glorious forest” (Bates, 2009 [1863], p. 371). It is estimated that by the end of ... Read More

      Abstract: The protests that took place on July 11 (11J) in Cuba generated a warning sign and a wave of heated debates among the international left about the challenges of the only living revolution on the Latin American continent.Some analyses in solidarity with Cuba, however hasty, rushed to label the Cubans who were on the streets on the 11th as “mercenaries from Miami,” “counter-revolutionaries,” or mere “agents of imperialism.” According to that thesis, those protests were part of the United States’ strategy to destabilize the Cuban government by mobilizing anti-communist sectors of society using apparatuses of the cultural industry, slogans and hashtags on social media, that shape the typical scenario of a color ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Indigenous identity-based politics of late twentieth and early twenty-first century Ecuador and Bolivia have been the subject of much investigation and debate among scholars of Latin American politics. Jeffrey Paige’s Indigenous Revolutions in Ecuador and Bolivia, 1990-2005 contributes to this body of work through a comparative study of the Indigenous movements of these two Andean countries. The book is based on interviews with the experts—leaders of these Indigenous movements. Between the first-hand accounts shared in the interviews, and Paige’s analysis, the reader comes to see how and why unifying (if not unified) Indigenous political movements emerged in each country—out of a refusal and inability to accept the ...

      Abstract: Over the course of the last thirty years historians have reconceptualized the colonial history of the Americas, seeking to break free of a model of history that prior-itized the actions and decision-making of European empires. Inspired in part by the work of geographer D.W. Meinig who emphasized the dual transmission of ideas and goods between Europe and the Americas, scholars have increasingly come to understand that the only way to write the history of the region bordering the Atlantic Ocean is to consider it as a whole. By reorienting their viewpoint away from European empires, scholars have been able to trace the movement of people, goods, and culture across imperial boundaries and have discovered the profound ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the early 1960s, as urban renewal schemes designed to prioritize the automobile and needlessly segregate land uses, took hold in the United States and elsewhere, the urban theorist and activist Jane Jacobs argued eloquently and persuasively against this new paradigm and in favor of what many now consider “traditional” urban planning and design. At the heart of this traditional way of building cities is a fine-grained mix of mutually-supportive land uses – residential, commercial, civic – that at reasonable urban densities, encourages people to walk and generally inhabit the public realm (i.e., sidewalks, plazas, parks, etc.). Shoppers, street vendors, residents, office workers, tourists, and shopkeepers all take ... Read More

Retired Professor of Mexican and Latin American History Terry Rugeley takes on this Olympian task in his exceptional portrait of Mexican social history that ranges from the Aztecs and Toltecs of pre-Columbian days, to the telenovelas, narcotraffickers, and public health challenges of contemporary Mexico.

      Abstract: Bret gustafson has been working on Indigenous movements in Bolivia since the 1990s focusing on questions of land and language rights in the Chaco region of lowland Bolivia. This book is a testament to decades of friendship, comradery, and commitment to the Guarani people and grew out of ongoing research collaborations. Perhaps this book surfaced out of Gustafson’s own excitement for the rise of a political party like MAS (Movement toward Socialism), a political party that promised to nationalize resource industries and redistribute wealth to Indigenous and poor people. Gustafson watched from afar as the MAS party came to power in 2006 out of series of popular mobilizations, from the “Water Wars” in Cochabamba in ... Read More
