International Perspectives on Chicana/o Studies : This World is My Place Hardback
Edited by Catherine (National University of Ireland, Maynooth) Leen, Niamh (University of Liverpool, UK) Thornton
Part of the Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies series
This volume examines how the field of Chicana/o studies has developed to become an area of interest to scholars far beyond the United States and Spain.
For this reason, the volume includes contributions by a range of international scholars and takes the concept of place as a unifying paradigm.
As a way of overcoming borders that are both physical and metaphorical, it seeks to reflect the diversity and range of current scholarship in Chicana/o studies while simultaneously highlighting the diverse and constantly evolving nature of Chicana/o identities and cultures.
Various critical and theoretical approaches are evident, from eco-criticism and autoethnography in the first section, to the role of fiction and visual art in exposing injustice in section two, to the discussion of transnational and transcultural exchange with reference to issues as diverse as the teaching of Chicana/o studies in Russia and the relevance of Anzaldua's writings to post 9/11 U.S. society.
