In this talk and conversation with Professor John Alba Cutler, Richard T. Rodriguez will discuss his recent book A Kiss Across the Ocean. Published by Duke University Press, the book explores the relationship between British post-punk musicians and their Latinx audiences in the United States since the 1980s. Melding memoir with cultural criticism, Rodríguez spotlights a host of influential bands and performers whose music and styles hold significant sway on generations of fans enthused by their matchlessly pleasurable and political reverberations.
