Borderlands : the new mestiza = La frontera by Gloria Anzaldúa( Book )

75 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 2,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rooted in Gloria Anzaldúa's experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenged, and continue to challenge, how we think about identity. Borderlands / La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a "border" is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new introduction by scholars Norma Cantu (University of Texas at San Antonio) and Aida Hurtado (University of California at Santa Cruz) as well as a revised critical bibliography."--Back cover

The Gloria Anzaldúa reader by Gloria Anzaldúa( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas, independent scholar and creative writer Gloria Anzaldua was an internationally acclaimed cultural theorist. As the author of Borderlands / La Frontera: The New Mestiza, Anzaldua played a major role in shaping contemporary Chicano/a and lesbian/queer theories and identities. As an editor of three anthologies, including the groundbreaking This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, she played an equally vital role in developing an inclusionary, multicultural feminist movement. A versatile author, Anzaldua published poetry, theoretical essays, short stories, autobiographical narratives, interviews, and children's books. Her work, which has been included in more than 100 anthologies to date, has helped to transform academic fields including American, Chicano/a, composition, ethnic, literary, and women's studies." "This reader - which provides a representative sample of the poetry, prose, fiction, and experimental autobiographical writing that Anzaldua produced during her thirty-year career - demonstrates the breadth and philosophical depth of her work. While the reader contains much of Anzaldua's published writing (including several pieces now out of print), more than half the material has never before been published. This newly available work offers fresh insights into crucial aspects of Anzaldua's life and career, including her upbringing, education, teaching experiences, writing practice and aesthetics, lifelong health struggles, and interest in visual art, as well as her theories of disability, multiculturalism, pedagogy, and spiritual activism. The pieces are arranged chronologically; each one is preceded by a brief introduction. The collection includes a glossary of Anzaldua's key terms and concepts, a timeline of her life, primary and secondary bibliographies, and a detailed index."--Jacket
Cassell's encyclopedia of queer myth, symbol, and spirit : gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender lore by Randy P Conner( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did you know that in medieval French folklore a person might change sex by passing under a rainbow? Or that same-sex unions have been celebrated by peoples of the ancient Mediterranean, Africa, China, and indigenous America? Or that Sappho, da Vinci, Emily Dickinson, Nijinsky, Benjamin Britten, Mishima, Adrienne Rich, Audre Lorde, Keith Haring, Boy George, and Derek Jarman number among those who have explored the spiritual dimension of gender and sexuality in their works? While the terms many of us employ today to identify ourselves - 'queer', 'lesbian', 'gay', 'bisexual', 'transgendered' - differ markedly from those of peoples of other times and places, we are nevertheless the bearers of a rich spiritual history that has been ignored or suppressed, a history encoded in sacred texts as well as in works of art, music, dance and other media. Drawing upon religion, mythology, folklore, anthropology, history and the arts, the Encyclopedia is a cornucopia of queer spirituality, containing over 1,500 alphabetically arranged entries from Aakulujjuusi to Zeus
Multi-cultural literacy( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: The issue of cultural literacy has been the subject of intense debate in the past two years. Several bestselling books about the deficiencies of our educational system as well as changes in basic curriculum at more than one major university have contributed to the fervor of this debate. Fueling the national controversy is the question of what body of knowledge constitutes cultural literacy. While many argue for a return to a "back to basics" curriculum, equally energetic voices call for a revised curriculum, one which embraces both traditional western classics and the classics of non-European cultures, among them African, Asian, and Latin American. This volume brings together thirteen essays which suggest the range of knowledge truly literate individuals need to possess. Essays by such writers as James Baldwin, Carlos Fuentes, Michelle Cliff, Paula Gunn Allen, Ishmael Reed, and Wendell Berry enlarge our perspective to include a variety of voices and heritages which contribute to the vibrant culture of the United States. Also included is a beginning list of names, places, dates, and concepts which are part and parcel of a multi-cultural fabric

Otras inapropiables : feminismos desde las fronteras by bell hooks( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inapropiadas/inapropiables, desubicadas en los mapas disponibles de la identidad y la política, sin poder adoptar ni la máscara del "yo" ni la del "otro" de las narrativas occidentales modernas. Fronterizas, intrusas, extranjeras, de conciencia antagonista y diferencial reclaman el privilegio sin garantías de partir de posiciones sociales múltiples y contradictorias en cuya tensión y conflicto se producen unos conocimientos y prácticas políticas reflexivas y críticas que se escapan de la autocomplacencia y las narrativas universales. Posiciones que declarándose mestizas e impuras, parciales y situadas, no se encaraman ni en la seguridad romántica de una pretendida pureza identitaria, ni en supuestos universalismos homogeneizadores sustentados en un capitalismo heteropatriarcal racialmente estructurado. Trabajando desde la articulación no reductora de múltiples y diferentes diferencias constitutivas de género, "raza"/etnicidad, sexualidad, clase, nacionalidad, los textos recogidos en este volumen evitan los planteamientos que jerarquizan y fijan a priori las posiciones unitarias de víctimas y opresores como elementos necesariamente excluyentes."

"Olvidar el cuarto propio para escribir en lengua propia . Los mundos de abajo se construyen con palabras que son nuestras y no de ellos, los de arriba. Tres mujeres que escriben narran aquí su experiencia en ese gesto político que nos refiere a la lengua como una herramienta nuestra recreadora de mundos. Todo acto lingüístico es un acto político, conscientes podemos desafiar al Estado, a los estados que intentan fijar la cuestión y las violencias de este mundo. Tomamos en nuestras manos lenguas otras. Lenguas que el Estado no ha elegido como suyas: lenguas pequeñas, locas y locales, lenguas disidentes, desviadas de la hegemonía"--Provided by publisher
