Chicanas: Literature, Theory, and Film

Professor Yvonne Yarbro-Bejarano, in her last quarter teaching at Stanford, will host three prominent Chicanas to discuss Literature, Theory, and Film.
Her second guest is historian Emma Pérez, Chair and Full Professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Her novel Forgetting the Alamo, Or, Blood Memory (2009) narrates the violent displacement of Mexicans, African Americans and Native tribes in the wake of the Battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto in 1836. With its crossdressing protagonist, the novel also queers this intervention into official Texas history. Dr. Pérez is also the author of the theoretical work The Decolonial Imaginary: Writing Chicanas into History.
