"We the Pueblo of Texas": Print Culture, Catholic Political Philosophy, and the First Revolutionary War of Independence (1813)
Raúl Coronado's teaching and research interests are in Latina/o literary and cultural history, from the colonial period to the 1940s, with an emphasis on rethinking the literature of the Americas in a transnational, hemispheric framework, focusing particularly on the U.S.-Mexico border, while simultaneously providing new insights into the legacies of modernity and colonialism in the Americas. The author of A World Not to Come: A History of 19th c. Latino Writing, Print Culture, and the Disenchantment of the World (Harvard University Press, 2012) he is currently working on a study of the historical emergence of queer Latina/o subjectivities.
