Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies
Volume 38, Number 1
The Spring 2013 issue of Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies features essays on Chicana/o identity in Alfredo Véa Jr.’s La Maravilla; queer storytelling in Felicia Luna Lemus’s Trace Elements of Random Tea Parties; sexual/textual politics in Fray Angélico Chávez’s La Conquistadora; and the struggle of Refugio Roman Martinez, a CIO organizer, against deportation. The dossier section presents reflections on Gloria Anzaldúa’s Borderlands/La Frontera from the perspectives of feminist border organizing, indigeneity, art activism, and activist scholarship. “Aztlán on Blast,” the artist’s dossier, is by Rio Yañez, whose social media art is featured on the cover. Rounding out the issue is an interview with filmmaker Ursula Biemann, whose Performing the Border focuses on a “culture of disposability” in Ciudad Juárezver.
