CHST 186 CH - Contemporary Chicana Literature Seminar
This seminar analyzes how Chicana writers have negotiated with and against the symbolic inheritance (and the material social consequences) of four Mexican cultural icons of womanhood: La Malinche, La Virgen de Guadalupe, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, and La Llorona. Furthermore, the process of icon construction in Mexicano-Chicano culture will be explored by studying post-mortem representations of Selena Quintanilla. Cross listed as ENGL 184C CH.
