the 1960s the number of Latina writers has grown considerably adding a new spice
to the US literary panorama and to feminine/feminist literature. Their
work has been an important contribution to other previous work by third world
women and other ethnic writers in the United States.
writers provide a new perspective about growing up being a member of a racial
and cultural minority. Besides, they are being stranded between two very
different worlds, cultures and languages. Nevertheless, their experience and
their experience and the literary work they create testifies the importance of
their cultural heritage and their contribution to the multicultural panorama of
the United States.
this site we will explore the characteristics of the different groups of Latinas
and the development and consolidation of Latina Literature in the last decades.
The influences in their work are many and varied: from Latin American women
writers, from Anglosaxon feminist writers and from the oral tradition of Latina
ancestors among others. You will find many resources valuable for teachers and
students of Latino/a Literature and I also expect you to contribute by sending
me interesting links and critical digital sources.
