Juana Maria Rodriguez’s New Book: Puta Life
April 14, 2023
Puta Life: Seeing Latinas, Working Sex, the new book by our own Juana María Rodríguez, has just dropped from Duke University Press! Evocative, illuminating, poignant, and personal, Puta Life is described as “an essential study devoted to the vitality of Latina/x sexual laborers who work to affirm life against all odds.” Highlighting the criminalization and stigmatization that surrounds sex work, the book lingers on those traces of felt possibility that might inspire more ethical forms of relation and care. Warmest congratulations, Juana, on this remarkable scholarly contribution!
