In colonized spaces, the cultural values and modes of communication of the 'other' have historically played a subordinate role to the dominant colonial cultures. In this paper I investigate how issues of power and hybridity are manifested through visual and textual materials in the public space of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and consider implications for the study of culture in general and visual culture in particular.

Professor Maria Rogal

Maria Rogal spent her formative years traveling internationally and has lived in Laos, Peru, and Liberia. This diverse background influences her work, which focuses on the relationship between design, culture and identity. Her teaching at the University of Florida focuses on the study of typography, history, theory, and the intersection of design and culture. She is at work on several projects which investigate the impact and relevance of graphic design and material culture in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. This work explores how a hybrid visual language develops through cultural assimilation. Recent articles include “Radicals with a Voice/Radicales con Voz” (Zed: A Journal of Design) and “South of the Border…Down Mexico Way” (Visible Language).”
