Sacred Iconographies in Chicana Cultural Productions: Feminism and Empowerment in Transnational Networks
(2013)
  • Clara Roman-Odio, Kenyon College
Abstract
This book examines the iconography of the Virgin of Guadalupe as a force for social justice and feminist emancipation within Chicana cultural productions from 1975-2010. In these productions the Virgin serves as a paradigm to unlock the histories of conquest and colonization, racism, and sexual oppression in the US-Mexico borderland and beyond.
