Comparative Literature

Lecture by José Saldívar: 'Transnationalism Contested: Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street and Caramelo O Puro Cuento'

Date: 
Friday, 7 March 2008 - 5:00pm
Presentation will focus on some of the transnational stories (historias) and novels written by Sandra Cisneros. It begins by considering how Cisneros thematizes the plight of Greater Mexico's beleaguered multiculture in The House On Mango Street and Caramelo and then defends it against the charges of failure. The presentation ends by turning toward the issues of figural language and border identities in Cisneros' fiction.
