Postmodern Vernaculars : Chicana Literature and Postmodern Rhetoric
Postmodern Vernaculars examines the work of Chicana authors such as Gaspar de Alba, Anzaldúa, Cantú, Castillo, Cisneros, Mora, Pérez, and Viramontes in relation to theories of postmodernism. Working with a fluid concept of postmodernism, one that traces the term’s evolution from the 1960s to the present, this book argues that Chicana literature is one vernacular, a regional variation of postmodernism. Drawing on the interdisciplinary scholarship that postmodernism itself has enabled – specifically recent developments in the fields of geography, ethnography, photography, history, and linguistics – Postmodern Vernaculars shows that Chicana literature participates in the ongoing reconstruction of postmodernism. -- publisher
