Women and Change at the U.S.-Mexico Border: Mobility, Labor, and Activism

Two books published in 1987 transformed feminist readings of the U.S.-Mexico border: Gloria Anzald a's (1987) Borderlands: La Frontera = The New Mestiza , and Vicki Ruiz and Susan Tiano's (1987) edited volume entitled Women on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Responses to Change . Anzald a's book, combining critical essays, autobiographical narrative, and poetry, powerfully critiqued “the border” and dualistic thinking more generally. Borderlands became a key text for feminist theorists grappling with the hegemony of white, middle-class feminism, as well as fixed understandings of power and identity. The volume by Vicki Ruiz and Susan Tiano, although located in distinct genre of knowledge production, charted new terrain for understanding the gendered dimensions of Mexico's debt crisis and the accompanying industrialization and urbanization of parts of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Women and Change at the U.S. - Mexico Border: Mobility, Labor, and Activism represents a timely intervention into debates initiated by Ruiz, Tiano, and Anzald a.

Abstract

Two books published in 1987 transformed feminist readings of the U.S.-Mexico border: Gloria Anzald a's (1987) Borderlands: La Frontera = The New Mestiza , and Vicki Ruiz and Susan Tiano's (1987) edited volume entitled Women on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Responses to Change . Anzald a's book, combining critical essays, autobiographical narrative, and poetry, powerfully critiqued “the border” and dualistic thinking more generally. Borderlands became a key text for feminist theorists grappling with the hegemony of white, middle-class feminism, as well as fixed understandings of power and identity. The volume by Vicki Ruiz and Susan Tiano, although located in distinct genre of knowledge production, charted new terrain for understanding the gendered dimensions of Mexico's debt crisis and the accompanying industrialization and urbanization of parts of the U.S.-Mexico border. Together, these books reconfigured our conceptualization of material and symbolic borders between Mexico and the United States. Women and Change at the U.S. - Mexico Border: Mobility, Labor, and Activism represents a timely intervention into debates initiated by Ruiz, Tiano, and Anzald a.
