Yolanda Padilla co-edits volume featuring Latina feminist archival research

IAS faculty member Yolanda Padilla has edited with Montse Feu of Sam Houston State University Latina Histories and Cultures: Feminist Readings and Recoveries of Archival Knowledge. This collection of scholarly essays introduces new research on Latina histories and cultures from the mid-nineteenth century to 1980. Examining a wide range of source materials, including personal and institutional archives, literature and oral history, the authors of the fifteen articles use transnational approaches and Latina feminist theory to remind us of a principle that is still too often forgotten: that sex and gender should be centered as crucial problematics in the study of the long history of Latina/o/x literature and culture.
