About the Author

Hilda Llorens, PhD, is a faculty member in the Sociology and Anthropology department at the University of Rhode Island.


Llorens engages the complex and contradictory images of nation, gender, and race, all set within the history of Puerto Rico and its colonial relationship with the United States. Her narrative invites a much-needed debate about the construction of race, racism, and nation in Puerto Rico. * New West Indian Guide *
Llorens' book offers a much-needed interdisciplinary analysis of the relationship between art and the visual politics of `othering' entrenched in colonial practices. Llorens looks closely at photographs, visual works, and art produced during key periods of Puerto Rican history (between 1890 and 1990). By skillfully contrasting local and colonial visual representations, she reveals how the work of Puerto Rican artists is in dialogue (sometimes also in confrontation) with U. S. economic interests and institutions. -- Isar P. Godreau, University of Puerto Rico at Cayey
