Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gloria Evangelina Anzald a (September 26, 1942 - May 15, 2004) was considered a leading scholar of Chicano cultural theory and Queer theory. She loosely based her most well-known book Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza on her life growing up on the Mexican-Texas border and incorporated her lifelong feelings of social and cultural marginalization into her works. Anzald a was born in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas on September 26, 1942 to Urbano Anzald a and Amalia Anzald a n e Garc a. Gloria Anzald a's great-grandfather, Urbano Sr., once a precinct judge in Hidalgo County, was the first owner of the Jes?'s Mar a Ranch on which Anzald a was born. Anzald a's mother grew up on an adjoining ranch, Los Vergeles ("the gardens"), which was owned by her family, and met and married Urbano Anzald a when both were very young. Anzald a is a descendant of many of the prominent Basque and Spanish explorers and settlers to come to the Americas in the 16th and 17th centuries. The surname Anzald a is of Basque origin.show more
