EntreMundos offers a multidisciplinary investigation of the concepts, impact, and writings of contemporary cultural theorist and creative writer, Gloria Anzaldua. Her work, which is frequently anthologized and often cited, as well as widely taught at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate level, has challenged and expanded previous views in American Studies, Chicano/a Studies, composition studies, cultural studies, ethnic studies, feminism, literary studies, critical pedagogy, and queer theory. Here scholars from a number of disciplines gather to reflect critically and anecdotally on Anzaldua's writing, her ideas, and the wider significance of her work. Highlighting some of Anzaldúa's lesser explored theories, EntreMundos challenges readers to re-examine Anzaldúa's writings and theorizing from additional perspectives. The goal is to broaden Anzaldúan scholarship, shifting the conversation in new directions while underscoring the visionary yet pragmatic social-justice dimensions of her work.

Industry Reviews

'This wide-ranging and imaginative volume offers invaluable insight into the work of one of the most important cultural theorists and creative writers of our time. One can only applaud the contributors' efforts to do justice to the scope and depth of Anzaldua's dazzlingly original poetry and prose. This bold and illuminating book will help scholars in American Studies, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Religious Studies and a range of other fields, come to terms with the rich, multivalent achievement of the incomparable Gloria Anzaldua.' - Shelley Fisher

"Reading this intellectually delicious anthology reminded me of Anzaldua's stunning genius. It provides further evidence that she belonged to all of us and none of us at the same time. This book is a tantalizing invitation to expand our understanding of Anzaldua's ideas. As an educator and as a Chicana, I have been yearning for this anthology for some time." - Eden Torres, University of Minnesota
