Borderlands as a Site of Resistance in Gloria Anzaldúa’s Political Thought
Keywords:Gloria Anzaldúa, Borderlands, Migration, Coalition Politics, Multiracial Feminism
The essay offers a deeper understanding of Gloria Anzaldúa’s theorization of borderlands, crisis, mobility, and resistance as a theory for coalition making among women of color. Through an analysis of Anzaldúa’s conceptualization of borderlands, strongly rooted in the socio-political context of the United States in the 1980s, the article deals with Anzaldúa’s innovative resignification of crisis and mobility as constitutive elements of political and coalition-making processes. Anzaldúa’s reconfiguration of borders and borderlands, and her intersectional analysis of politics, should be understood as a crucial formulation in the development of the U.S. multiracial and transnational feminist movement.
