Reviews

"The greatest strengths of this book lie in its extensive engagement with the concept of 'sensing decolonial aesthetics' and the rather rich reading of specific examples of artists seeking to redefine the relationship of the arts to popular audiences. . . . Strong analytical reach."--Modern Language Notes "Unlike many works that focus on a single country or region to discuss the 1960s in Latin America, Ramos embarks on a journey to discover a continental decolonial aesthetic. . . . The book's ambitious scope, coupled with its excellent case studies, means that it will be mandatory reading for students and scholars. . . . Will leave a lasting impression on Latin American studies specifically and postcolonial studies more generally."--The Americas "Mediante un estudio que rompe con las divisiones . . . Ramos junta poesia, musica y el cine para leer-las desde los lentes contemporaneos de la critica a la colonialidad y del pensamiento decolonial. . . . El libro reposiciona para el presente algunos viejos debates a la vez que anima a recorrer otros caminos para continuar pensando en las continuidades de las propuestas esteticas estudiadas."--Revista de Estudios Hispanicos
