      Ball, Rachael; Streff, Caroline (University of Alaska Anchorage. Bookstore, 2018-08-03)
      Caroline Streff and Professor Ray Ball discuss their experiences conducting archival and library research in Havana and writing historically informed poetry. Caroline Streff's poetry focuses on the complex issues related to the Revolution's redistribution of physical space. Dr. Ball's poetry concerns the ways the history of colonialism intersects with how history is told and retold on the island. Caroline Streff majored in English and International Studies at UAA. She plans to study Latin American rhetoric in graduate school. Ray Ball is Associate Professor of History at UAA. She is a published poet and author of Treating the Public: Charitable Theater and Civic Health in the Early Modern Atlantic World.
