Writing women in Central America : gender and the fictionalization of history by Laura Barbas-Rhoden( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and English, Old [ca. 450-1100] and held by 698 libraries worldwide
"Writing Women in Central America explores these relationships in key texts and analyzes the ways in which women authors appropriate history to confront the rhetoric of the state, global economic powers, and even dissident groups within their own cultures. Barbas-Rhoden finds a common thread in the literary imaginations of Claribel Alegria, Rosario Aguilar, Gioconda Belli, and Tatiana Lobo and shows how these writers offer provocative supplements to the historical record." "Writing Women in Central America considers narratives in which the authors craft their own interpretations of history to make room for women, indigenous peoples, and Afro-Latin Americans. Some of the text reveal silences in the narratives of empire- and nation-building. Others reinterpret events to highlight the struggle of marginalized peoples for dignity and humanity in the face of oppression. All confront the ways in which stories have been told about the past, but direct readers toward a more just future for all who live in Central America."--Jacket
Ecological imaginations in Latin American fiction by Laura Barbas-Rhoden( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 306 libraries worldwide
"From the rainforests of Costa Rica and the Amazon to the windswept lands of Tierra del Fuego, Laura Barbas-Rhoden discusses the natural settings within contemporary Latin American novels as they depict key moments of environmental change or crisis in the region from the nineteenth-century imperialism to the present. By integrating the use of futuristic novels, Barbas-Rhoden pushes the ecocriticism discussion beyond the realm of 'nature writing.' She avoids the clichés of literary nature and reminds readers that today s urban centers are also part of Latin America and its environmental crisis. One of the first writers to apply ecocriticism to Latin American fiction, Barbas-Rhoden argues that literature can offer readers a deeper understanding of the natural world and humanity s place in it. She demonstrates that ecocritical readings of Latin American topics must take into account social, racial, and gender injustices. She also addresses postapocalyptic science fiction that speaks to a fear of environmental collapse and reminds North American readers that the environments of Latin America are rich and diverse, encompassing both rural and urban extremes"--From the cover
