This research looks at the cultural performances and popular celebrations practiced by Afro-Mexicans from the colonial period to the 20th century in the regions of Veracruz, Oaxaca and Guerrero. The goal is to demonstrate how the use of performance and popular traditions has impacted Afro-Mexicans in the shaping of an imagined community, giving space for agency in the formation of their cultural identity. The scholarship of the African diaspora in Mexico is a relatively fresh area of study. Gonzalo Aguirre Beltran (1945) pioneered the documentation of their economic history including slavery and origins. Other themes of study rely on sociopolitical aspects, geographic studies, gender, magic and spirituality.

Salvador Jimenez Murguia, PhD Akita Internaitonal University

This volume takes up the topic of Spanish Cinema from the Post-Franco period beginning in 1975 to the present. Covering over 400 entries that include films, producers, directors, actresses, actors, genres, and critical interpretations, the breadth and depth of this volume may generate some highly significant material for both academics, as well as general audiences.

The first of its kind (indeed there are no other encyclopedias that cover this topic anywhere on the market), the Encyclopedia of Spanish Film would be a timely pop cultural companion to both Spanish/Iberian Studies and Film Studies.
