Light in the Dark PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Light in the Dark free pdf Written during the last decade of her life, "Light in the Dark" represents the culmination of Gloria E. Anzaldua's mature thought and the most comprehensive presentation of her philosophy. Throughout, Anzaldua weaves personal narratives into deeply engaging theoretical readings to comment on numerous contemporary issues including the September 11 attacks, neocolonial practices in the art world, and coalitional politics. She valorizes subaltern forms and methods of knowing, being, and creating that have been marginalized by Western thought, and theorizes her writing process as a fully embodied artistic and political practice. Resituating Anzaldua's work within Continental philosophy and new materialism, "Light in the Dark" takes Anzalduan scholarship in new directions."
