Summary
  • Border Fictions offers the first comparative analysis of multiethnic and transnational cultural representations about the United States' borders both with Mexico and with Canada. Blending textual analysis with theories of globalization and empire, Claudia Sadowski-Smith forges a new model of inter-American studies that is diverse and geographically expansive
  • Border Fictions places into dialogue a variety of hemispheric perspectives from Chicana/o, Asian American, American Indian, Latin American, and Canadian studies. Each chapter examines a wide range of fiction from celebrated authors to writers whose contributions to border literature have not yet been fully appreciated
  • Border Fictions links the work of these authors to civil rights movements, environmental justice activism, struggles for land and border-crossing rights, as well as to anti-imperialist forms of nationalism in the United States' neighboring countries. The book forces us to take into account the ways in which shifts in the nature of global relations affect literary production, especially in its hemispheric manifestations
