Melissa Huerta is associate professor of Spanish at Denison University.
Representing Latina/x Reproductive Decision Making offers exceedingly timely analyses of the distinct ways in which gendered Latinidad is represented with respect to issues such as infertility, abortion, and adoption, among others. Grounded in careful readings of a broad range of cultural texts, Melissa Huerta convincingly demonstrates the need for a greater focus on Latina/x reproductive decision making within studies of popular culture.— María Elena Cepeda, Williams College
The tremendous value and timeliness of this book cannot be overstated. Melissa Huerta’s Latina/x Reproductive Decision Making not only tenders a host of breathtaking readings of pivotal cultural texts but it additionally reveals the high stakes of reproductive decision making on Latina/x lives. Displaying an unmatched originality and a deep commitment to the interlocking politics of gender, race, sexuality, and the body, this book is guaranteed to spark necessary conversation and debate for years to come. — Richard T. Rodríguez, University of California, Riverside
