Ends of Assimilation compares sociological and Chicano/a (Mexican American) literary representations of assimilation. It argues that while Chicano/a literary works engage assimilation in complex, often contradictory ways, they manifest an underlying conviction in literature's productive power. At the same time, Chicano/a literature demonstrates assimilation sociology's inattention to its status as a representational discourse. As twentieth-century sociologists employ the term, assimilation reinscribes as fact the fiction of a unitary national culture, ignores the interlinking of race and gender in cultural formation, and valorizes upward economic mobility as a politically neutral index of success.
The study unfolds chronologically, describing how the historical formation of Chicano/a literature confronts the specter of assimilation discourse. It tracks how the figurative, rhetorical, and lyrical power of Chicano/a literary works compels us to compare literary discourse with the self-authorizing empiricism of assimilation sociology. It also challenges presumptions of authenticity on the part of Chicano/a cultural nationalist works, arguing that Chicano/a literature must reckon with cultural dynamism and develop models of relational authenticity to counter essentialist discourses. The book advances these arguments through sustained close readings of canonical and noncanonical figures and gives an account of various moments in the history and institutional development of Chicano/a literature, such as the rise and fall of Quinto Sol Publications, asserting that Chicano/a writers, editors, and publishers have self-consciously sought to acquire and redistribute literary cultural capital.

War Echoes: Gender And Militarization In U.S. Latina/o Cultural Production (American Literatures Initiative)

War Echoes examines how Latina/o cultural production has engaged with U.S. militarism in the post–Viet Nam era. Analyzing literature alongside film, memoir, and activism, Ariana E. Vigil highlights the productive interplay among social, political, and cultural movements while exploring Latina/o responses to U.S. intervention in Central America and the Middle East. These responses evolved over the course of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries—from support for anti-imperial war, as seen in Alejandro Murguia's Southern Front. to the disavowal of all war articulated in works such as Demetria Martinez’s Mother Tongue and Camilo Mejia’s Road from Ar Ramadi. With a focus on how issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality intersect and are impacted by war and militarization, War Echoes illustrates how this country’s bellicose foreign policies have played an integral part in shaping U.S. Latina/o culture and identity and given rise to the creation of works that recognize how militarized violence and values, such as patriarchy, hierarchy, and obedience, are both enacted in domestic spheres and propagated abroad.

Ends of Assimilation: The Formation of Chicano Literature - John Alba Cutler

Ends of Assimilation: The Formation of Chicano Literature Description:

Ends of Assimilation examines how Chicano literature imagines the conditions and costs of cultural change, arguing that its thematic preoccupation with assimilation illuminates the function of literature. John Alba Cutler shows how mid-century sociologists advanced a model of assimilation that ignored the interlinking of race, gender, and sexuality and characterized American culture as homogeneous, stable, and exceptional. He demonstrates how Chicano literary works from the postwar period to the present understand culture as dynamic and self-consciously promote literature as a medium for influencing the direction of cultural change. With original analyses of works by canonical and noncanonical writers--from Américo Paredes, Sandra Cisneros, and Jimmy Santiago Baca to Estela Portillo Trambley, Alfredo Véa, and Patricia Santana--Ends of Assimilation demands that we reevaluate assimilation, literature, and the very language we use to talk about culture.

John Alba Cutler (Ph.D. University of California, Los Angeles, 2008) specializes in US Latino literatures, multiethnic American poetry, contemporary American literature, and print culture studies. His book Ends of Assimilation: The Formation of Chicano Literature. published by Oxford University Press, examines how Chicano/a (Mexican American) literary works represent processes of assimilation, and what those representations can teach us about race, gender, and the nature of literary discourse. Ends of Assimilation  argues that Chicano/a literature illuminates and critiques the historical consolidation of assimilation as a sociological discourse, but also that assimilation discourse helps to clarify the myriad ways that Chicano/a literature imagines cultural change.

Professor Cutler is now working on a new book investigating theories of competition in relation to late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Latino/a print culture. This book will illuminate a virtually forgotten archive of poetry and fiction published in Spanish-language newspapers in the United States, asking what value literature held in the intense rivalry for attention and readership among these periodicals. Collectively, these literary works pose the question of what it means to produce art within the constraints of economic and cultural competition.

Professor Cutler has published articles in American Literary HistoryAmerican Literature, MELUS. and Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies. He is a core faculty member of the Latina and Latino Studies Program and a member of the Latina and Latino Literature Executive Committee for the Modern Language Association, as well as the Board of Directors of the Recovering the US-Hispanic Literary Heritage Project. He is active in the Poetry & Poetics Colloquium as well, and serves as a series editor for the Drinking Gourd Chapbook Poetry Prize. He received the Weinberg College Distinguished Teaching Award in 2013.

Assimilation is perhaps the most divisive issue concerning English language learners in the United States.

The articles in this anthology explore many of the issues involved with English language learners, bilingual education, and the English-only/ official English movement, with the hope that the reader will come to understand the issues involved.

Libro Caribbeana: An Anthology of English Literature of the West Indies, 1657-1777 PDF

Inglés Thomas W. Krise University of Chicago Press 27,59 €

15 de febrero de 2009

Although the colonies in the West Indies were as important to the expanding British empire as those in North America, writings from the British West Indies have been conspicuously absent from anthologies of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century British literature. In this first literary anthology dedicated to the region, Thomas W. Krise gathers important but little-known descriptions, poems, narratives, satires, and essays written in and about this culturally rich and politically tempestuous region.
