About this product
- DescriptionPostmodern Vernaculars examines the work of Chicana authors such as Gaspar de Alba, Anzaldua, Cantu, Castillo, Cisneros, Mora, Perez, and Viramontes in relation to theories of postmodernism. Working with a fluid concept of postmodernism, one that traces the term's evolution from the 1960s to the present, this book argues that Chicana literature is one vernacular, a regional variation of postmodernism. Drawing on the interdisciplinary scholarship that postmodernism itself has enabled - specifically recent developments in the fields of geography, ethgraphy, photography, history, and linguistics - Postmodern Vernaculars shows that Chicana literature participates in the ongoing reconstruction of postmodernism.
