9781403969453: Reading U.S. Latina Writers: Remapping American Literature

This essential teaching guide focuses on an emerging body of literature by U.S. Latina and Latin American Women writers. It will assist non-specialist educators in syllabus revision, new course design and classroom presentation. The inclusive focus of the book - that is, combining both US Latina and Latin American women writers - is significant because it introduces a more global and transnational way of approaching the literature. The introduction outlines the major historical experiences that inform the literature, the important genres, periods, movements and authors in its evolution; the traditions and influences that shape the works; and key critical issues of which teachers should be aware. The collection seeks to provide readers with a variety of Latina texts that will guarantee its long-term usefulness to teachers and students of pan-American literature. Because it is no longer possible to understand U.S. Latina literature without taking into consideration the histories and cultures of Latin America, the volume will, through its organization, argue for a more globalized type of analysis which considers the similarities as well as the differences in U.S. and Latin American women's cultural productions. In this context, the term Latina evokes a diasporic, transnational condition in order to address some of the pedagogical issues posed by the bicultural nature which is inherent in pan-American women's literature.

About the Author:

ALVINA QUINTANA is the Associate Professor of English and Women's Studies at the University of Delaware, has written numerous essays in cultural/multicultural studies and is the author of Home Girls: Chicana Literary Voices.

Review:

"No one could have done this book better than Alvina Quintana, who brings to her project both intimate knowledge and an unmatched authority. Her guide establishes the stature of Latina writers in an ever-expaning canon of American literature and will prove invaluable to any student of the broader culture." - Susan Goodman, University of Delaware

"Shifting the way in which we view 'American writers' is a must. With Alvina E. Quintana's new volume, Reading U.S. Latina Writers: Remapping American Literature, we can begin to reshape our thinking. The diverse essays of this volume, historically situated with bibliographic information, expand our notion of 'Latina'; they provide entry to unfamiliar texts and foreground unheard voices. What a gentle urging to read new texts! Reading U.S. Latina Writers shatters silences; these are truths and revelations about another world of women we need to know and pass on to our students. As an educator, for years I have been wanting a source and resource such as this." - Charlotte Pierce-Baker, Duke University, author of Surviving the Silence: Black Women's Stories of Rape
