New Latina Narrative

During the last two decades of the twentieth century, U.S. Latina writers have made a profound impact on American letters with fiction in both mainstream and regional venues. Following on the heels of this vibrant and growing body of work, New Latina Narrative offers the first in-depth synthesis and literary analysis of this transethnic genre. Focusing on the dynamic writing published in the 1980s and 1990s by Mexican American, Puerto Rican, Cuban American, and Domincan American women, New Latina Narrative illustrates how these writers have redefined the concepts of multiculturalism and diversity in American society. As participants in both mainstream and grassroots forms of multiculturalism...

Postmodern Cross-culturalism and Politicization in U.S. Latina Literature

  • Publisher: Peter Lang

Employing a comparative and cross-ethnic approach, this book provides a sophisticated literary and cultural analysis of texts by Mexican American, Puerto Rican, Cuban American, and Dominican American women writers. As she engages contemporary feminist, political, postcolonial, and psychoanalytic theory, Fatima Mujčinović investigates how selected U.S. Latina narratives have proposed a rethinking of minority subject positioning under the postmodern conditions of cultural hybridization, gender objectification, political oppression, and geographic displacement. In its emphasis on gendered, diasporic, exilic, and geopolitical identities, this book specifically examines works by Ana Castillo, Cristina Garcia, Graciela Limon, Demetria Martinez, Rosario Morales, Aurora Levins Morales, Judith Ortiz Cofer, Helena Maria Viramontes, and Julia Alvarez."

The Memories of Ana Calderon

Now available for the first time in paperback, The Memories of Ana Calderón is the fictional memoir of a talented woman, born in tradition-bound rural Mexico, who comes to the United States and greater opportunity only to find that here, too, society, family, and religion seem to conspire to hold her back. In order to succeed Ana must give up all that she holds dear. She must remake herself into a rootless and obsessed individual. But even after accomplishing this, fate still conspires to wound her. Ana Calderón has will, guts, and intelligence, but her battle against family, church, and the justice system shakes our belief in the ability to forge our own destinies. The Memories of Ana Calderón is a second novel by the writer who The New York Times Book Review hailed as one who "leaves the reader with that special hunger that can be created only by a newly discovered writer. Ms. Limón's prose is self-assured and engrossing."

  • Publisher: Springer

This is the first book combining research on the Global Environment, Catastrophic Risks and Economic Theory and Policy. Modern economic theory originated in the middle of the twentieth century when industrial expansion coupled with population growth led to a voracious use of natural resources and global environmental concerns. It is uncontested that, for the first time in recorded history, humans dominate the planet, changing the planet's atmosphere, its bodies of water, and the complex web of species that makes life on earth. This radical change in circumstances led to rethinking of the foundations of human organization and, in particular, the industrial economy and the economic theory behind it. This book brings together new approaches on multiple levels: environmental sustainability requires rethinking in terms of economic theory and policy as well as the considerations of catastrophic risk and extremal events. Leading experts address questions of economic governance, risk management, policy decision making and distribution across time and space.
