Border Texts: Writing Fiction From Northern Mexico

ByNúria Vilanova

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The first critical study in English of Northern Mexican border fiction from a Mexican point of view. Border Texts studies the relationship between the Mexico-U.S. border and some of the fiction produced in the area. Latin Americanist Núria Vilanova has devoted much of her research to the Mexico-U.S. border from a cultural and literary perspective. She completing her Ph.D. at Liverpool University (1993).. "Vilanova’s Border Texts is a rich and multifaceted study that blends literary and cultural studies, economics, history, and the sociology of immigration studies. This complex and highly readable study opens a terrain to understand how Mexican based border writers, theorists, and cultural producers articulate the ever growing discourse of those on the Otro Lado (the other side) of the U.S line of empire and provides a rich and compelling side of border cultures from South to El Norte, rather than its reverse."
