  Contributor Biography:  Manuel Fernandez 
Manuel Fernandez, Guatemalan historian, retired after more than 30 years of university teaching. For many years his research was centered on the social history of eighteenth-century Central America. In the last decade, he has focused on twentieth-century gender issues (especially Hispanic American gay culture). In the United States, he was a visiting professor at Columbia University and at the University of South Carolina.
