Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies
Volume 38, Number 2
The Fall 2013 issue of Aztlán features essays on the dramatization of Chicano/a “status panic” in the popular arts; the influence of “necessary theater” on the Royal Chicano Air Force; camp and rasquache sensibilities in works by Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Lourdes Portillo; and Toribio Romo González, patron saint of immigrants. The dossier section, guest curated by Jaime R. Águila, examines politics in Arizona following the passage of SB 1070, known as the “anti-immigrant law,” in 2010. The artist’s communiqué highlights the work of Los Angeles artist Ramon Ramirez. In an interview with José L. S. Gámez, Ramirez reflects on learning and living through his work.
