Overview

This book explores the most recent critical and theoretical approaches in the field of Chicano studies from an interdisciplinary perspective. The contributions go back to the 4th International Conference on Chicano Literature which took place in Sevilla in May 2004. They deal with a wide variety of topics and approach the subject from diverse viewpoints. Some examine specific literary texts by major Chicano authors from feminist, comparative and close-reading approaches, others discuss ideological and cultural issues like folklore, ethnicity, identity, sexuality or stereotypes, while yet others focus on artistic manifestations like films and murals. Furthermore, the volume also includes an interview with the Chicana writer Ana Castillo. The main goal of this collection is to find new cultural possibilities and strategies while exploring future dilemmas in the field of Chicano Studies.
