(p.127) Conclusion: Thinking beyond Limits
Latinx Literature Unbound

Ralph E. Rodriguez

Fordham University Press

This chapter draws to a close the arguments in the preceding chapters to underscore why Latinx is wanting as a taxonomic rubric for understanding literature. It maintains that leaning less heavily on the identity category in creating literary taxonomies and moving away from a unitary notion of Latinx identities would help us better understand the literary output of subjects identified and self-identified as Latinx and would open up broader avenues for writing about this literature. To that end, it proposes that we let our projects and arguments, not pre-constituted identity categories, drive the principle of selection for the texts we analyze.

Keywords:   identity, Latinx, literature, projects, taxonomy
