Since the beginning of his career in 1990, Frank Graziano has written on an extraordinarily wide range of topics in Latin American culture. His early work was on poetry, resulting among many other publications in the edited volume Semblanza de Alejandra Pizarnik (Fondo de Cultura Económica, 1992). Later research resulted in Divine Violence: Spectacle, Psychosexuality, & Radical Christianity in the Argentine “Dirty War” (Westview Press 1992); The Lust of Seeing: Themes of the Gaze and Sexual Rituals in the Fiction of Felisberto Hernández (Bucknell University Press, 1997); and Undocumented Dominican Migration (University of Texas Press, 2013), which has a companion website: www.undocumented-dominican-migration.com.
Graziano’s other books have focused on religious cultures in Latin America. The present website is the companion to Miraculous Images and Votive Offerings in Mexico (Oxford University Press, 2015). Earlier books, also from Oxford University Press, include The Millennial New World (1999); Wounds of Love: The Mystical Marriage of St. Rose of Lima (2004); and Cultures of Devotion: Folk Saints of Spanish America (2006), which has a companion website: www.culturesofdevotion.com.

He has received grants and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Council of Learned Societies, the John Carter Brown Library, the Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays Programs, Duke University, and the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, among many others.
