Abstract:

"An analytical companion to the authors' groundbreaking anthology of Latina theater, Puro Teatro, this volume presents a theoretical perspective from which to understand and contextualize Latina theater as a genre in its own right. Applying feminist and postcolonial theory as well as theories of transculturation, they show how these works form a unified body that contributes to the formation of Latina identity in America today."
