Levana’s Feminist Reading Group KEEPS READING “Borderlands/La Frontera”

17 Mar

WHAT: The Levana Gender Advocacy Centre’s feminist reading group meets once a month to discuss a different text and WE’RE NOT DONE with Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza by Gloria Anzaldúa JUST YET. A complex text like hers deserves some more time.

Event poster for 'Levana Feminist Reading Group Reads Borderlands Le Frontera The New Mestiza'.

“Rooted in Gloria Anzaldúa’s experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenge how we think about identity. Borderlands/La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a “border” is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us.”

Join us for part II of our discussion on the book. We’ll be focusing mostly on the second poetry portion, but folks are welcome to talk about any part of the book. If you weren’t there for the first reading group, you’re welcome to join anyway.
