Telling to Live



Telling to Live Telling to Live embodies the vision that compelled Latina feminists to engage their differences and find common ground Its contributors reflect varied class, religious, ethnic, racial, linguistic, sexual, and national backgrounds Yet in one way or another they are all professional producers of testimonios or life stories whether as poets, oral historians, literary scholars, ethnographers, or psychologists Through coalitional politics, these women have forged feminist political stances about generating knowledge through experience Reclaiming testimonio as a tool for understanding the complexities of Latina identity, they compare how each made the journey to become credentialed creative thinkers and writers Telling to Live unleashes the clarifying power of sharing these stories The complex and rich tapestry of narratives that comprises this book introduces us to an intergenerational group of Latina women who negotiate their place in U.S society at the cusp of the twenty first century These are the stories of women who struggled to reach the echelons of higher education, often against great odds, and constructed relationships of sustenance and creativity along the way The stories, poetry, memoirs, and reflections of this diverse group of Puerto Rican, Chicana, Native American, Mexican, Cuban, Dominican, Sephardic, mixed heritage, and Central American women provide new perspectives on feminist theorizing, perspectives located in the borderlands of Latino cultures This often heart wrenching, sometimes playful, yet always insightful collection will interest those who wish to understand the challenges U.S society poses for women of complex cultural heritages who strive to carve out their own spaces in the ivory tower Contributors.

    Autobiographic essays that illuminate the wide range of Latina experience A very good read I like this book in the same way I like Bare Your Soul, although its not so uplifting.

    I think what I loved most about these stories was reading stories about experiences, feelings, and even some of of the words used that I thought I was only one who had experienced, felt, and used.
