Feminism, Nation and Myth: La Malinche

Rolando Romero (Editor), Amanda Nolacea Harris

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Feminism, Nation and Myth explores the scholarship of La Malinche, the indigenous woman who is said to have led Cortés and his troops to the Aztec city of Tenochtitlán. The figure of La Malinche has generated intense debate among literature and cultural studies scholars. Drawing from the humanities and the social sciences, feminist studies, queer studies, Chicana/o studies, and Latina/o studies, critics and theorists in this volume analyze the interaction and interdependence of race, class, and gender. Studies of La Malinche demand that scholars disassemble and reconstruct concepts of nation, community, agency, subjectivity, and social activism.

This volume originated in the 1999 “U.S. Latina/Latino Perspectives on la Malinche” conference that brought together scholars from across the nation.
