Under the Skin of Latina Feminism and Racism: Travel Narratives, Novels of Reform and Racial Rhetoric

Milagros López-Peláez Casellas

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

"The Cambridge History of Latina/o American Literature emphasizes the importance of understanding Latina/o literature not simply as a US ethnic phenomenon but more broadly as an important element of a trans-American literary imagination. Engaging with the dynamics of migration, linguistic and cultural translation, and the uneven distribution of resources across the Americas that characterize Latina/o literature, the essays in this History provide a critical overview of key texts, authors, themes, and contexts as discussed by leading scholars in the field. This book demonstrates the relevance of Latina/o literature for a world defined by the migration of people, commodities, and cultural expressions."
