Example: One of 9 books in the series: Al Filo: Mexican American Studies series available

  • Three Decades of Engendering History (2014) by Antonia Castañeda et al. "The Decolonial Imaginary is a smart, challenging book that disrupts a great deal of what we think we know... it will certainly be read seriously in Chicano/a studies." Women's Review of Books Emma Perez discusses the historical methodology which has created Chicano history and argues that the historical narrative has often omitted gender. She poses a theory which rejects the colonizer s methodological assumptions and examines new tools for uncovering the hidden voices of Chicanas who have been relegated to silence."
