Buzzing Hemisphere / Rumor Hemisférico

The University of Arizona Press

Buzzing Hemisphere / Rumor Hemisférico imagines an alternative to the monolingualism of the U.S. literary and political landscape, and it proposes a geo-neuro-political performance attuned to damaged or marginalized forms of knowledge, perception, and identity. Poet Urayoán Noel maps the spaces between and across languages, cities, and bodies, creating a hemispheric poetics that is both broadly geopolitical and intimately neurological.

Across a Great Divide

Continuity and Change in Native North American Societies, 1400–1900

The University of Arizona Press
Archaeological research is uniquely positioned to show how native history and native culture affected the course of colonial interaction, but to do so it must transcend colonialist ideas about Native American technological and social change. This book applies that insight to five hundred years of native history. Using data from a wide variety of geographical, temporal, and cultural settings, the contributors examine economic, social, and political stability and transformation in indigenous societies before and after the advent of Europeans and document the diversity of native colonial experiences. The book’s case studies range widely, from sixteenth-century Florida, to the Great Plains, to nineteenth-century coastal Alaska.

Mesoamerican Plazas

Arenas of Community and Power

The University of Arizona Press

This is the first book to examine the roles of plazas in ancient Mesoamerica.
