(p.1) Introduction

Suzanne Bost

Fordham University Press

Gloria Anzaldúa describes an experience of corporeal upheaval that defies conventional understandings about identity — so much so that critics generally ignore that it made historical data and professional authority less untouchable. This includes the Chicana Feminism and Disability Studies that discusses the three writers that were shaped for critical discourse about identity in the period when major writings first appeared. In addition, discussion about identity politics and permeability is stated which explains that work is invested in identity not as a predetermined entity. Moreover, methodology and organization is talked about for the clearer view of literary criticism and its methods.
