and the Poetics of Culture

examines the work of three women of color with
interconnected histories of marginalization during
the 1920s and 1930s in the intellectual fields of
folklore studies, anthropology and ethnolinguistics.
The Feminist Review notes, “Cotera further claims
that ‘the most provocative point of connection’
is each woman’s exploration of ‘the political
and poetic possibilities of fiction.”
Telling Lives – Sunday, March 28, 2010 – 3 to 5pm Free
Telling Lives: Tejana Narratives
a platica featuring authors
Emma Perez & Maria Cotera

Forgetting the Alamo,
Or, Blood Memory: A Novel

is an intervention in queer history and fiction with its love story between two women of color in mid-19th-century Texas. Pérez illustrates how a colonial past still haunts our nation’s imagination. The social themes and identity issues that Pérez explores–political climate, debates over immigration, and historical revision of the American West–are current even today. Pérez will read from her new book in the shadow of the Alamo, an historic event for our community just before “Fiesta” begins.

A collaboration with Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social, UTSA Women’s Studies Institute,
