Class Details

This seminar surveys a broad selection of works by Chicana and Latina authors. Foundational texts within Chicana feminism by Norma Alarcon, Gloria Anzaldua, Cherrie Moraga, and Emma Pérez will situate our readings of the diverse corpus of literature produced by Chicana/Latina authors in the United States, including Julia Alvarez, Ana Castillo, Sandra Cisneros, Cristina Garcia, and Helena Maria Viramontes. Readings of novels, short stories, poems, essays, and plays by Chicana, Cuban American, Puerto Rican, and Dominican American authors provide students with a range of experiences and literary styles that comprise this body of works. Students will ask how the diversity of these texts (in style, in author, in subject) bespeak a shared or distinct experience across differences. Particular attention will be given to the challenges that Chicana/ Latina thinkers and writers pose towards the studies of nationalist movements, literary genres, cultural production, and feminisms.
