Virtual: YLNG & LGBTQ Book Club Discussion — Borderlands / La Frontera: The New Mestiza

Wednesday, January 6, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Join the Yale Latino Networking Group and LGBTQ Affinity Group for a book club discussion of Borderlands / La Frontera: The New Mestiza by Gloria Anzaldúa. We will review Chapters 7 and Gloria’s Interview on Wednesday, January 6 @12-1 pm.

Rooted in Gloria Anzaldúa’s experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenged, and continue to challenge, how we think about identity. Borderlands / La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a “border” is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us.
