About the Author:

Gloria E. Anzaldúa (1942–2004) was a visionary writer whose work was recognized with many honors, including the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award, a Lambda literary award, the National Endowment for the Arts Fiction Award, and the Bode-Pearson Prize for Outstanding Contributions to American Studies. Her book Borderlands / La frontera was selected as one of the 100 Best Books of the Century by the Hungry Mind Review and the Utne Reader.

AnaLouise Keating, Professor of Women’s Studies at Texas Woman’s University, is the author of Women Reading, Women Writing: Self-Invention in Paula Gunn Allen, Gloria Anzaldúa, and Audre Lorde, Teaching Transformation, and Transformation Now! Toward a Post-Oppositional Politics of Change; editor of Anzaldúa’s Interviews/Entrevistas, The Gloria Anzaldúa Reader, and EntreMundos/AmongWorlds: New Perspectives on Gloria Anzaldúa; and co-editor, with Anzaldúa, of this bridge we call home: radical visions for transformation.

Review:

"Gloria E. Anzaldua is one of the most generative and generous thinkers and storytellers in our times. In these rich auto-ethnographies she continues to search for what she calls the 'positive shadows' of personal and collective experience, spirit, and world. Anzaldua has the courage to write inside recesses and crevices to encounter what one does not necessarily want to know, but needs nonetheless to inhabit, tuned to change and possibility. In her unique speaking in entwined tongues, in Spanish and English, she is a multimodal guide in our hard times to 'active imagining' for worlds that may yet be. It is such a pleasure to see this book at last; it makes her legacy vivid when it is most needed." (Donna Haraway, author of When Species Meet)

"Ready to move beyond identity politics? Beyond contemporary theories of globalization, decoloniality, feminism, Marxism? Then take this U.S. Third Space/Fourth World Feminist Liberationist ride on Anzaldúan rivers of thought. They carry away outmoded debris. Tributary streams nourish decolonial visions. Shimmering re-cognitions arrive. Perceptual light shifts, wreaking havoc, unleashing floods of liberation philosophy. Dizzy? Take the book’s medicine. It transforms refugees into citizen-chamanas, political co-creators of how we will be known. Anzaldúa wonders: Do you have the yearning, the energizing power of life, the courage to join us?"  (Chela Sandoval, author of Methodology of the Oppressed)

"Published more than a decade after Anzaldúa’s death, the collection of essays is a welcomed resource for scholars and students of Anzaldúa, Chicana/o and Latina/o studies, and American studies. Overall, Anzaldúa’s chapters and Keating’s editorial work are of the highest caliber and great additions to the body of Anzaldúa’s work." (Monica Montelongo Flores Southwestern American Literature 2016-05-01)

"[T]he publication of a new book of [Anzaldua's] writing provides a glorious new opportunity to revel in her brilliant mind.... In our contemporary world of intense binary thinking and wall building, Gloria Anzaldúa’s insights provide an inspiring way forward."  (Susan Noyes Platt The Raven Chronicles 2016-07-01)

"The publication of Gloría Anzaldúa's Light in the Dark/ Luz en lo oscuro: Rewriting Identity, Spirituality, Reality eleven years after her death in 2004 is a highly anticipated—and enormously important—event in feminist scholarship, one that takes both philosophy and activism in new directions. The manuscript ... makes significant philosophical contributions to feminism, epistemology, aesthetics, ontology, critical philosophy of race, and social and political thought at the same time that it calls into question how we conceive of and organize these areas of study to begin with." (Natalie Cisneros Hypatia Reviews online 2016-08-01)

"Moving from the intricate Tex-Mex-rootedness of Borderlands to the more spiritual, historical-mythical, liminal negotiation zone of Light in the Darkness, Anzaldúa continues her examination of in-between spaces. Her concept of nepantla enables multiple thematic and stylistic lines to intersect, defining possible spaces of cultural transformation."
  (Romana Radlwimmer Women's Review of Books 2016-07-01)

"Throughout Light, Anzaldúa courageously offers up her lived experiences to argue for the importance of spirituality, theories in the flesh, and the female body.... Scholars invested in intellectual praxis will find a powerful guide to social justice inquiry within this publication." (Robert Gutierrez-Perez Women's Studies in Communication 2017-07-01)

"Perhaps the book’s greatest strength is Keating’s vast editorial knowledge.... Under Keating’s care, Light in the Dark continues Anzaldúa’s metaphysical philosophies, reiterating, expanding, and inspiring consciousness building and setting innovative directions for future Chicana/o studies.... The text offers a new way of decolonizing the mind, transforming the world, and reaching out into the universe." (Iracema M. Quintero Aztlan 2017-04-01)

"Light in the Dark is not only a previously missing piece of Anzaldúa’s oeuvre, important to the growing field of scholarship on Anzaldúa, but also a text that speaks broadly across disciplines and will surely influence scholarship in women’s studies, philosophy, politics, Chicana/o and Latina/o studies, border studies, native studies, sexuality studies and beyond." (Michelle R. Martin-Baron International Feminist Journal of Politics 2016-12-24)

Book Description Duke University Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Written during the last decade of her life, Light in the Dark represents the culmination of Gloria E. Anzaldua s mature thought and the most comprehensive presentation of her philosophy. Throughout, Anzaldua weaves personal narratives into deeply engaging theoretical readings to comment on numerous contemporary issues-including the September 11 attacks, neocolonial practices in the art world, and coalitional politics. She valorizes subaltern forms and methods of knowing, being, and creating that have been marginalized by Western thought, and theorizes her writing process as a fully embodied artistic and political practice. Resituating Anzaldua s work within Continental philosophy and new materialism, Light in the Dark takes Anzalduan scholarship in new directions. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780822360094
