    NYU Press 2012; US$ 28.00

    While the term “culture wars” often designates the heated arguments in the English-speaking world spiraling around race, the canon, and affirmative action, in fact these discussions have raged in diverse sites and languages.  Race in Translation  charts the transatlantic traffic of the debates within and between three zones—the U.S., France, and Brazil.... more...

  • Dreaming of Cockaigneby Herman Pleij; Diane Webb

    Columbia University Press 2001; US$ 33.99

    Imagine a dreamland where roasted pigs wander about with knives in their backs to make carving easy, where grilled geese fly directly into one's mouth, where cooked fish jump out of the water and land at one's feet.
