520 |a This Palgrave Pivot offers new insights into leading Chicana writer Gloria Anzaldúa, investigating the dynamic composition of her texts, and situating her work in a larger hemispheric tendency of performativity emerging at the turn of the millennium. Presenting Anzaldúa as a quintessential figure of feminist and decolonial theory-making in the Americas, this book argues that the Chicana writer articulated her notions on fluctuations through “performative concepts” which did not respect the borders of single texts or editions, but organically grew through them. The offered close readings of Anzaldúa’s published works, drafts, and archive material demonstrate the constant changes and intertwined phases of her literary and conceptual production.
