Faculty Book: Araceli Tinajero

Araceli Tinajero and J. Brian Freeman, eds.

Technology and Culture in Twentieth-Century Mexico
(University of Alabama Press, 2013)
This volume offers a novel approach to Mexican studies by considering the complex relationship between technology, politics, society, and culture. While it is widely accepted by scholars that substantial changes in technology occurred in Mexico during the last century, very little has been written on these issues, perhaps because of a propensity to associate Mexico with tradition and folklore rather than progress and modernity. In this diverse collection, historians, literary scholars, social scientists, and cultural critics examine themes ranging from the introduction of new forms of travel (automobiles, buses, trains, and subways) to innovations in media (radio, film, and the Internet) to the relationships between technology, literature, art, and architecture in the twentieth century and beyond. Araceli Tinajero (Prof., City) serves on the doctoral faculty in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian literatures and languages.
