Whispering Gloria Anzaldúa

room 12 ECHOES

New York
This walk quotes the poems from Borderland/La Frontera, a book by feminist writer Gloria Anzaldua. Her term, "deslenguadas" takes pride in speaking Spanglish as a hybrid cultural being existing in the Borderland which is a metaphorical space of living in the bridge of two cultures, implicit in language and gender, which always carry class and ethnic/race significance. For her as Chicana, her work exists and oscillates in a constant border-crossing that is implicit in her reading of intersectionality and interdisciplinarity from poetry to non-fictional stories, as well as autobiography that she names as ‘autohistorias’.
