Bridging free pdf The inspirational writings of cultural theorist and social justice activist Gloria Anzaldua have empowered generations of women and men throughout the world. Charting the multiplicity of Anzaldua's impact within and beyond academic disciplines, community trenches, and international borders, Bridging presents more than thirty reflections on her work and her life, examining vibrant facets in surprising new ways and inviting readers to engage with these intimate, heartfelt contributions. Bridging is divided into five sections: The New Mestizas: "transitions and transformations"- Exposing the Wounds: "You gave me permission to fly in the dark"- Border Crossings: Inner Struggles, Outer Change- Bridging Theories: Intellectual Activism with/in Borders- and "Todas somos nos/otras": Toward a "politics of openness." Contributors, who include Norma Elia Cantu, Elisa Facio, Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Aida Hurtado, Andrea Lunsford, Denise Segura, Gloria Steinem, and Mohammad Tamdgidi, represent a broad range of generations, professions, academic disciplines, and national backgrounds. Critically engaging with Anzaldua's theories and building on her work, they use virtual diaries, transformational theory, poetry, empirical research, autobiographical narrative, and other genres to creatively explore and boldly enact future directions for Anzalduan studies. A book whose form and content reflect Anzaldua's diverse audience, Bridging perpetuates Anzaldua's spirit through groundbreaking praxis and visionary insights into culture, gender, sexuality, religion, aesthetics, and politics. This is a collection whose span is as broad and dazzling as Anzaldua herself.
