Proud to be included in this wonderful new edition of ReVista: Harvard Review of Latin America, Fall 2018, dedicated to Latin America and Asia. In addition to my note, “From Extraction to Construction“, there are fascinating articles by many friends and colleagues, including Guo Jie, Latin America expert at the School of International Studies of Peking University, Rosario Santa Gadea of the Center for the Study of China and the Asia Pacific at UP, Rebecca Ray of Boston University, Patricia Castro Obando and Margaret Myers. Michael Chu contributes a moving piece about “Growing up Chinese in Uruguay”. Kudos to Editor June Erlick for a wonderful mix of stories. And over half by female authors! In English or Spanish.
