The Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies (MALS) presents a Faculty Lecture by Sonia Saldívar-Hull (Professor, The University of Texas at San Antonio), entitled, "Borderlands and Beyond: The Legacies of Anzaldúan Theories."

In this presentation, Saldívar-Hull offers a genealogy of Anzaldúan border thinking in Borderlands/la frontera: the New Mestiza as well as in texts written before and after the publication of her paradigmatic text. Precisely at this historical moment with Muslims barred from entry to the U.S., with women’s bodies subject to misogynist legislation, and with the continued violence against brown and black bodies, I turn to the visionary writings of Chicana theorist Gloria Anzaldúa to locate her oppositional/decolonial consciousness, resistance strategies, and examine her vision towards planetary healing.
