Description

From Patmos to the Barrio is the new book by David Sanchez. It traces the historical subversion of imperial myths from the Book of Revelation to the devotions to the Virgin of Guadalupe in contemporary Los Angeles.

Theme of the day:

is this land still made for you and me?

Does “shared life” mean that we just exist side-by-side being affected by others –or even noticing them? What happens when convivencia goes wrong, when U+I = just “me”, and there’s no room for “you” or “them”?
