"Ursula Le Guin is truly one of the great writers of our time." Listen to her interviewed on Writerscast


"While Le Guin is no longer writing fiction, she continues to write poetry, as she has done virtually her entire life. With the appearance of this new collection of poems from 2010-2014, Late in the Day, published by the excellent PM Press, I had the opportunity to speak with her about her writing and her recent writing. In these poems she explores a variety of poetic forms, all of which she easily masters. The poems are most often about relationships, connecting to the natural world, to myth, story, and of course, other humans, always with a careful eye and a deft understanding of the complexity of all things." —David Willk, Writerscast

Listen to Gabriel San Román talking about "Venceremos" on WPFW's Latino Media Collective


Gabriel San Román talks about "Venceremos" on the anniversary of the 9/11 Pinochet coup in Chile, of which Victor Jara was one of the more well known casualties, machine gunned in a soccer stadium.

“Gabriel San Román provides a thoughtful and comprehensive overview of the New Chilean Song Movement. Chile’s music of the 1960s and early 1970s was not only a milestone in Latin American popular culture, its importance transcended the strictly artistic to assume social and political significance. San Román insightfully interweaves the music’s artistic development with Chile’s tumultuous history of those years.“
—James Brennan, professor and chair of history, University of California, Riverside

Sasha Lilley talks Catastrophism in The People's Press

"Catastrophism is a politics based on the notion that a societal collapse is coming, and that the main – or even only -- hope for radical social change is out of such a collapse. A related notion posits that people are most likely to move to the left, toward a more progressive political outlook, if they face an erosion in their living standards or similar hardships. We argue that both ideas are misguided. The book developed out of a number of conversations about this commonsense notion that things have to get really bad for people to take progressive action. Americans, so the theory says, have had it too good, and if anyone is going to see the world for what it is, they’ll need some deep shock, like an economic shock, to force the scales to fall from their eyes. It’s interesting that people have not entirely let go of this idea even after the 2008 economic crisis."—Sasha Lilley, The People's Press

Listen to Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt on KPFA's Against the Grain


What happened in Cuba after 1959 wasn't only Fidel Castro's rise and the political maneuverings of a revolutionary government. There was also a fundamental transformation in culture and cultural production. Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt describes how cultural work was harnessed to the project of building a new society.

“This study is thoroughly researched and commendably detailed, excelling especially in its methodical approach to tracing the formation and evolution of cultural policy in Cuba from 1959 to 1976. It is likely to prove of considerable use to others working on, and interested in, the relationship between art and politics, not only in Cuba but also beyond the Cuban case.”
—Antoni Kapcia, Author of Literary culture in Cuba: Revolution, nation-building and the book (Manchester University Press, 2012)
