About the Author

Anne Garland Mahler is Assistant Professor of Spanish at the University of Virginia.


"Mahler convincingly argues that movements many readers may be familiar with, such as the Black Panther Party, the Young Lords, and Black Lives Matter, were inheritors of or collaborators in this Tricontinental aesthetic. Reproductions of striking film stills and bold graphic design make the book as visually captivating as it is wonderfully written--modeling the Tricontinental's commitment to a well-designed revolution."-- (04/11/2019)
"[A] rich, interdisciplinary history of the Tricontinental. . . . Historians of the United States will find interesting the many links between conceptions of the Global South and of the American South."-- (06/01/2019)
"A conceptually rich examination of the political and aesthetic vocabularies produced by and around the Tricontinental, combining rigorous historical investigation with close formal analysis of works of literature, film, and visual culture. . . . Not only does From the Tricontinental to the Global South offer a long history of resistant politics in which Latin American, Afro-descendant, and African American intellectuals have played a central role, it provides a long view of contemporary understandings of the Global South, which both grounds the concept and gives it renewed critical heft. It is crucial reading for anyone interested in and working on the Global South today."-- (11/01/2018)
"From the Tricontinental to the Global South is a compelling read and should appeal to a broad range of scholars who are interested in racial transnational social movements, racial capitalism, and the politics of culture in the Americas."--Juan De Lara"Aztlán" (04/01/2019)
