Criticism in the borderlands : studies in Chicano literature, culture, and ideology( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV>This pathbreaking anthology of Chicano literary criticism, with essays on a remarkable range of texts & mdash;both old and new & mdash;draws on diverse perspectives in contemporary literary and cultural studies: from ethnographic to postmodernist, from Marxist to feminist, from cultural materialist to new historicist. The editors have organized essays around four board themes: the situation of Chicano literary studies within American literary history and debates about the & ldquo;canon & rdquo;; representations of the Chicana/o subject; genre, ideology, and history; and the aesthetics of Chicano literature. The volume as a whole aims at generating new ways of understanding what counts as culture and & ldquo;theory & rdquo; and who counts as a theorist. A selected and annotated bibliography of contemporary Chicano literary criticism is also included. By recovering neglected authors and texts and introducing readers to an emergent Chicano canon, by introducing new perspectives on American literary history, ethnicity, gender, culture, and the literary process itself, Criticism in the Borderlands is an agenda-setting collection that moves beyond previous scholarship to open up the field of Chicano literary studies and to define anew what is American literature.

Thinking en español : interviews with critics of Chicana/o literature by Jesús Rosales( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking en español captures conversations with leading Chicana and Chicano literary critics. This unique book consists of interviews with founding members of Chicano criticism conducted by the author, who, through his conversations with leaders such as Luis Leal, Maria Herrera-Sobek, Tey Diana Rebolledo, and Juan Rodriguez, shows the path of criticism from 1848 to the present. The twelve critics interviewed for this project share certain characteristics. For each one, Mexico plays an essential role in his or her personal and academic background, and each is bilingual and bicultural, having received formal literary education in Spanish graduate programs. As products of the working class, each scholar here shares a sense of social consciousness and commitment that lends an urgency to their desire to promote Chicano literature and culture at the local, regional, national, and international levels. They serve as a source of inspiration and commitment for future generations of scholars of Chicano literature and leave a lasting legacy of their own. Thinking en español legitimizes Chicana/o criticism as an established discipline, and documents the works of some of the most important critics of Chicano literature at the turn of the twentieth and into the twenty-first century. This timely book immortalizes literary historical figures and documents the trajectory of Chicano criticism"--
