about this item

This book examines how industrialism led to the negation of racialized bodies, knowledges, and spaces. It analyzes the concept of the “individual” as a medical, economic, political, and theoretical term, focusing on how medical knowledge, doctors, surgery, experimentation, healing, and the soul are treated in Mexican American modernist literature.
