Conclusion: Archival ImpulsesBibliographyAbout the Author
This book has many strengths, but Diana Isabel Martínez’s translation of Anzaldúa’s theories and centering of marginalized voices is an especially significant contribution to current scholarship. Most importantly, Martínez focuses on an Anzaldúan methodology for understanding the voices of marginalized communities through the performative, narrative storytelling, and sharing of experiences that curates the rhetorical space in-between the creative process and the memorialization of its tangible lived presence.— Teresita Garza, St. Edward's University
