*The Caribbean Philosophical Association has announced two winners for the
2017 Nicolás Guillén Outstanding Book Award are Nadia V. Celis-Salgado’s La
rebelión de las niñas: El Caribe y la “conciencia corporal” (Madrid:
Iberoamericana, 2015) and Jeremy Matthew Glick’s The Black Radical Tragic:
Performance, Aesthetics, and the Unfinished Haitian Revolution (New York:
NYU Press, 2016).]*

*Description of La rebelión de las niñas:* This book selects a precise and
forceful corpus of texts that lucidly demonstrates the workings of diverse
patriarchal policies on sexuality and the body of adolescents and young
girls, through the modes in which they internalize and reproduce the logic
of male desire over their bodies and gestures as well as through the
subversion of these parameters.

President Neil Roberts writes: “Nadia V. Celis-Salgado’s deft book shatters
any logics reserving for boys the path to adulthood and maturity. By
emphasizing girls and attendant facets of the body, corporeality,
embodiment, and subject formation, Celis-Salgado provides us a gift of
scholarship that navigates Caribbean thought, feminist political theory,
and human development, among other areas. It’s marvelous accomplishment
bridging poeticism and historicism carries forth the spirit of Guillén.”

*Description of* *The Black Radical Tragic: *As the first successful
revolution emanating from a slave rebellion, the Haitian Revolution remains
an inspired site of investigation for a remarkable range of artists and
activist-intellectuals in the African Diaspora.

In *The Black Radical Tragic*, Jeremy Matthew Glick examines
twentieth-century performances engaging the revolution as laboratories for
political thinking. Asking readers to consider the revolution less a fixed
event than an ongoing and open-ended history resonating across the work of
Atlantic world intellectuals, Glick argues that these writers use the
Haitian Revolution as a watershed to chart their own radical political
paths, animating, enriching, and framing their artistic and scholarly
projects. Spanning the disciplines of literature, philosophy, and political
thought, The Black Radical Tragic explores work from Lorraine Hansberry,
Sergei Eisenstein, Edouard Glissant, Malcolm X, and others, ultimately
enacting a speculative encounter between Bertolt Brecht and C.L.R. James to
reconsider the relationship between tragedy and revolution. In its grand
refusal to forget, The Black Radical Tragic demonstrates how the Haitian
Revolution has influenced the ideas of freedom and self-determination that
have propelled Black radical struggles throughout the modern era.
