Since 1982 María Herrera-Sobek and Helena María Viramontes have been instrumental in bringing together the most salient artists, filmmakers, poets, and novelists, as well as literary and film critics in the field of Chicana Studies at the University of California at Irvine. The present volume weaves together, through original work and critique, the cultural production of some of the most important Chicana writers and filmmakers of our time.
This volume includes and speaks to the creativity of such writers and filmmakers as Bernice Zamora, Ana Castillo, Sandra Cisneros, Lourdes Portillo, Demitria Martínez, Mary Helen Ponce, Frances Salomé España, Gloria Anzaldúa, Elba Rosario Sánchez, Sheila Ortiz Taylor, Lorna D. Cervantes, and Helena María Viramontes.
Through more than a decade of work, Herrera-Sobek and Viramontes have ensured the visibility and underscored the importance of today’s generation of Chicana writers, artists, and filmmakers. This collection is a celebration of their creative spirit.
