Articles, Essays, Books, and more …
I am currently working on a book based on my PhD dissertation.
I co-authored a “people’s history” of Little Havana (A History of Little Havana) published by The History Press in 2015. This book is the first to provide an in-depth history of the neighborhood, with a focus on the contributions of Cubans and later Latino residents.
My co-author is Dr. Guillermo Grenier, a professor of Sociology in the Global & Sociocultural Studies department at Florida International University and a fellow expert on the Cuban diaspora. He is co-author of This Land is Our Land: Newcomers and Established Residents in Miami (2003, University of California Press), A Legacy of Exile: Cubans in the United States (2002, Allyn and Bacon) and author of numerous other books and articles.
I am a columnist for Little Havana’s community newspaper, Calle Ocho News. You can find my articles for the paper here.
On this site I will also be posting some of my previous unpublished articles and other writings.
