about this item

The first booklength study of this genre, CollectiveIdentity and Cultural Resistance in Contemporary Chicana/o Autobiographyfacilitates new understandings of how people and cultures are displaced andreinvent themselves. Through the examination ofvisual arts and literature, Juan Velasco analyzes the space for self-expressionthat gave way to a new paradigm in contemporary Chicana/o autobiography. By bringing together self-representation with complextheoretical work around culture, ethnicity, race, gender, sex, and nationality,this work is at the crossroads of intersectional analysis andengages with scholarship on the creation of cross-border communities, theliberatory dimensions of cultural survival, and the reclaiming of new art fashioned against the mechanisms of violencethat Mexican-Americans have endured.
