First published in 1993, Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage, volume 1 was the first anthology produced by the program. It laid the foundation for what would become the premier center for research on Latino documentary history in the United States. The anthology functions to acquaint readers with the work that had been done up to the early 1990s on the Hispanic literary history of the United States, to outline the agenda for recovering the lost Hispanic literary heritage and to discuss pressing questions of canonization, social class, gender and identity that must be addressed in restoring the lost or inaccessible history and literature of any people.
This APP Digital publication was made possible with a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and support from the Manifold Digital Services Pilot Program, as well as the work of the following Recovery staff and Research Assistants: Gabriela Baeza Ventura, Ph.D.; Lorena Gauthereau, Ph.D.; Madeleine M. Maillet; Adelaida Mendoza; Julio Molinete; María Sánchez Carbajo and Carolina Villarroel, Ph.D.
