Reading and writing the ambiente: queer sexualities in Latino, Latin American, and Spanish culture
In this dynamic collection of essays, many leading literary scholars trace gay and lesbian themes in Latin American, Hispanic, and U.S. Latino literary and cultural texts.Reading and Writing the Ambienteis consciously ambitious and far-ranging, historically as well as geographically. It includes discussions of texts from as early as the seventeenth century to writings of the late twentieth century. Reading and Writing the Ambientealso underscores the ways in which lesbian and gay self-representation in Hispanic texts differs from representations in Anglo-American texts. The contributors demonstrate that-unlike the emphasis on the individual in Anglo- American sexual identity-Latino, Spanish, and Latin American sexual identity is produced in the surrounding culture and community, in the ambiente. As one of the first collections of its kind,Reading and Writing the Ambienteis expressive of the next wave of gay Hispanic and Latin scholarship.
