This compilation of essays centered on Hispanic literary and cultural criticism utilizes space as an operational concept, not only in its real-geographical sense, but in its metaphorical, theoretical, and discursive manifestations, along with the related notions of the visible/invisible, dominant/dominated, empowered/powerless. The essays range from colonial domination and international struggles over territorial claims, to a meditation on the politics of location, to the issue of spatial representation of mature-age women and gay men within a dialectic of visibility/invisibility in Spanish theater and cinema. Stewart King lectures in the Hispanic Studies Program, Monash University, Australia. Jeff Browitt is Head of Latin American Studies in the Institute of International Studies at the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia.
