Roundtable discussion held at the 2018 El Mundo Zurdo hosted by the Society for the Study of Gloria Anzaldua.
For many of the discussions, scholars focusing on Anzaldua’s life and work, the use of her historical materials provides a crucial foundation for these endeavors. Without Anzaldua’s
archival collections, not only would research around about her work be stalled or impossible, but also so would efforts to expose reveal her writing, teachings and legacy to others. This can be said of many other archival collections of underrepresented, excluded, or erased individuals and
communities. This roundtable seeks to address the following topics related to the central theme of representation in history and paving the way for others to occupy a place in the historical narrative.
Panelists included: Itza Carbajal, Antonia Castaneda, Laura Rendon, and Liliana Wilson
