New e-books (August 2018)

Deeply rooted in the present : heritage, memory, and identity in Brazilian quilombos / Mary Lorena Kenny

Asking what it means to be quilombola (descendants of African slaves) in the twenty-first century, Kenny illustrates how heritage and identity do not simply exist, but are continually being constructed to reflect particular historical circumstances. The book includes supplementary exercises that encourage readers to make connections between the case study at hand, their own heritage, and heritage-making efforts in other parts of the world.
