Dos Libros and Many Struggles: A Reading for Nuev@s Voces Poeticas: A Dialogue about New Chican@ Identities and Outrage: A Protest Anthology for a Post 9/11 World

Nuev@s Voces Poeticas: A Dialogue about New Chian@ Identities with Isaac Chavarría, Gabriel Sanchez, Rossy Evelin Lima, & Christopher Carmona

This book examines the identities of Chican@ in a post-9/11 America. In an effort to not hijack and prescribe new Chican@ identities from one author’s perspective, this book is constructed in dialogue format with 4 different perspectives and 4 different approaches. We ask the questions: What has triggered such an interest in Chican@ in recent times? What types of poetry, writing, and art is being created and what are the social factors that have led to new Chican@ identities? ¬ is book addresses four di erent identities within the “Chican@” identity such as xicanindio (Carmona), inmigrante (Lima), poch@ (Chavarria), & the fluid Chican@ (Sanchez) as a jumping off point to discuss all that is happening currently.

Outrage: A Protest Anthology for Injustice in a Post 9/11 World

The last few years have seen several incidents of outrage from the people and now we must respond the best way possible, through our writings and artwork. This anthology is dedicated to the atrocities of the shootings of black and brown people to the injustices that the refugees have encountered when fleeing war-torn countries, to the rise of anti-Latin@ sentiment that has led to the banning of Mexican American and Ethnic Studies, to the banning of brown bodies through xenophobic legislation, and the constant and complacent racism against anything Middle Eastern or Asian, to the complete disregard to indigenous rights in the name of corporate progress.

Please make sure to park in the rear of the lot & enter through the second door of the lime green house from the front.
