Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn this study of how ethnic literature enters the US classroom and the literary canon, Delia Poey compares the risks facing teachers and interpreters of well-known Latina/o or Latin American texts with those run by the "coyote" who smuggles undocumented workers across the US/Mexico border.
PortraitDelia Poey is assistant professor of Spanish at Florida State University. She has edited Out of the Mirrored Garden: New Fiction by Latin American Women and co-edited Little Havana Blues: A Cuban American Literature Anthology and Iguana Dreams: New Latino Fiction.
Pressestimmen"Poey's study of the institutionalization of Latin American and Latino literature in the U.S. academy is original, smart, spirited, and full of shrewd observations." - Gustavo Perez Firmat, David Feinson Professor of Humanities, Columbia University
