This title is offered as a special-order item. Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 170303. Publisher's description: Mexican and Mexican American women have written about Texas and their lives in the state since colonial times. Edited by fellow Tejanas Ines Hernandez-Avila and Norma Elia Cantu, Entre Guadalupe y Malinche gathers, for the first time, a representative body of work about the lives and experiences of women who identify as Tejanas in both the literary and visual arts. The writings of more than fifty authors and the artwork of eight artists manifest the nuanced complexity of what it means to be Tejana and how this identity offers alternative perspectives to contemporary notions of Chicana identity, community, and culture. Considering Texas-Mexican women and their identity formations, subjectivities, and location on the longest border between Mexico and any of the southwestern states acknowledges the profound influence that land and history have on a people and a community, and how Tejana creative traditions have been shaped by historical, geographical, cultural, linguistic, social, and political forces.
