Olga M. Gonzalez is assistant professor of anthropology at Macalaster College.
"Gonzalez's ethnographic meditation on identity, history, violence, inequality, and cultural transformation is a joy to read. In writing that is sharp and insightful, she offers a cutting-edge analysis of local remembering and forgetting juxtaposed with recorded historic events. This is anthropology at its best and a real treat to read." - Victoria Sanford, Lehman College, City University of New York"
