About this product
- DescriptionThe question of identity has been present in Chicana literature since its beginnings and the second part of the 20
th century witnessed proliferation of works by Chicanas addressing this issue. Those recent works differ significantly from the earliest representations of Chicana self-definition processes. The aim of this work is to identify and describe vel approaches to Chicana identity and identity formation as presented by Denise Chavez, Sandra Cisneros, and Mona Ruiz. Therefore, the book analyzes both similarities and differences between various representations of this topic. In addition, it examines the dynamics of interaction between multiple factors influencing the processes of Chicana identity formation presented in the analyzed texts, with a particular focus on the spatial valence which has been disregarded for a long time.
