Bodies at War: Genealogies of Militarism in Chicana - download pdf or read online

By Belinda Linn Rincón

In the wake of U.S. army intervention out of the country and collapsing family economies, students have grew to become their recognition to neoliberalism and militarization, ideological and fabric tasks which are frequently handled as coincident, although now not interdependent. Bodies at War examines neoliberal militarism, a time period that indicates the advanced ways that neoliberalism and militarism interanimate one another as they naturalize dis/empowering notions of masculinity and femininity, regulate democratic practices, and circumscribe the that means of citizenship and nationwide belonging.

Bodies at War examines the increase of neoliberal militarism from the early Seventies to the current and its transformation of political, monetary, and social kin. It charts neoliberal militarism’s impression on democratic practices, financial regulations, notions of citizenship, race kinfolk, and gender norms through concentrating on how those adjustments have an effect on the Chicana/o neighborhood and, extra in particular, on the way it shapes and is formed by way of Chicana our bodies. The e-book increases very important questions about the cultural legacies of warfare and the gendering of violence—topics that stretch throughout a number of disciplinary fields of inquiry, together with cultural and media reports. It attracts realization to the connection among struggle and society, to neoliberal militarism’s harmful social influence, and to the way forward for Latina soldiering. via Chicana artwork, activism, and writing, Rincón deals a visionary origin for an antiwar feminist politic.

It's acknowledged that one by no means forgets one’s past love. yet hardly ever does that love go beyond all different issues, turning into an obsession, a profession, or a explanation for dwelling. First-time novelist and well known literary critic Bruce-Novoa explores the very courting among love and artwork during this hugely lyrical and experimental novel set to the backdrop of the babyboomer period, specifically as expressed in movie, tune and pop culture from the Sixties to the Nineteen Eighties.
