Exploring Borderlands

Chicana writer Gloria Anzaldúa tells us that the border is "una herida abierta [an open wound] where the lifeblood of two worlds is merging to form a third country — a border culture." This program explores the literature of the Chicano borderlands and its beginnings in the literature of Spanish colonization.
