Congratulations to Dr. William A. Calvo-Quiros for the publication of his book "Undocumented Saints"
Dr. William Calvo-Quirós just published his book Undocumented Saints (Oxford University Press)!
The book follows the migration of popular saints from Mexico into the US and the evolution of their meaning. It explores how Latinx battles for survival are performed in the worlds of faith, religiosity, and the imaginary, and how the socio-political realities of exploitation and racial segregation frame their popular religious expressions. It also tracks the emergence of inter-religious states, transnational ethnic and cultural enclaves unified by faith.
