Fernando J. Rosenberg is associate professor in the department of Hispanic studies and comparative literature at Brandeis University. He is the author of The Avant-Garde and Geopolitics in Latin America.
"A compelling work. In this particular moment, in which the role of
the arts and literatures is being questioned and reviewed in
universities--and when it is becoming more and more obvious that
social sciences and human rights advocates are considering more and
more literary texts and films and debates about their documentary
and evidentiary claims--Rosenberg responds to some of the questions
raised, proposing a clear critique of the limitations of the human
rights discourse and rhetoric."
--Ana Forcinito, University of Minnesota
"Exceptionally well-conceived. I expect that this study will be widely read and influential not only for students and scholars of Latin American literature and culture but also for those working in adjacent research areas, including postcolonial studies, visual culture and art history, media studies, human rights, law, philosophy, and globalization studies."
