Tatiana Reinoza | Reclaiming the Americas


Tuesday, March 12, 2024

College Building, Room 412

Tatiana Reinoza is Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of Notre Dame. In her research and teaching, she explores diverse facets of Latinx visual art in the United States including its relationship to borderlands discourse, and activism.  Reclaiming the Americas:  Latinx Art and the Politics of Territory (University of Texas Press, 2023), is an interdisciplinary study that examines how Latinx artists adopted the medium of printmaking to reclaim the lands of the Americas for Indigenous, migrant, mestiza/o, and Afro-descendant people. Reclaiming the Americas shows how Latinx artists have been at the forefront of battling the resurgence of anti-immigrant discourse, making migration histories visible, and critiquing printmaking’s complicity in the colonization of the Americas.
