Gloria Anzaldúa’s Borderlands

Spring 2020

Taught By: Amy Sara Carroll

Section: AX

CRN: 7103

Credits: 4

In this seminar, students will focus on the varied work—cross-genre writing (essays, poetry, science and speculative fictions), artmaking, community-building, activism—of Tejana thinker-tinker Gloria Anzaldúa. They will closely read key texts by Anzaldúa, including Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza. They also will diagram Anzaldúa’s impact on Latinx and Latin American studies, transnational ethnic studies, gender and sexuality studies, inter-American literary and cultural studies, border studies, critical disability studies, Native American and indigenous studies, and border studies (to name a few of the inter/disciplinary formations reshaped by Anzaldúa’s praxis). Finally, students—following Anzaldúa’s lead—will criss-cross the borders of the critical and creative in sequenced individual and collaborative seminar assignments.
