The Mestiza, Borderlands, and What it means to Live Cross Culturally
Notice the terms used in many of our readings: Mestiza, the Borderlands, and cross cultures. Listen to changes in tone and feel the intensity rise up off the page of these writings. Notice how Cofer uses details to connect us to her world: “Not many years later that area too would be mainly Puerto Rican. It was as if the heart of the city map were being gradually colored in brown-cafe-con-leche brown. Our Color” (Bryant, 2010, p. 232). Ask yourself what deeper meaning the description.
Look for use of repetition in your readings. What is this alerting us as readers? What do the authors want us to learn? Again, read for meaning, but also read for the experience: the sound of the words, the images, and the rhythm of the words.
As you read, you will want to think about the historical and cultural contexts in which the authors lived and wrote. Placing yourself in their shoes means, for example, what is it like to not understand the language where you are living, to not understand and join in, or to not be free to communicate your thoughts and ideas? How many different languages do we know and how does this influence how we live? Think about how it must have felt living between the traditions you grew up with and the culture you currently face. You may even ask yourself: how well would I have done in this environment?
Judith Ortiz Cofer
Judith Ortiz Cofer often credits her grandmother’s avid storytelling to her love of language and writing. In her writing, she “shows the tension that is an integral part of a life lived within and between two cultures” (Bryant, 2010, p. 230). Listen to reading of her work, The Line of the Sun.
Sandra Cisneros writes with a provocative, pointed satirical, renegade style using poignant imagery while exploring the changes Mexicans face immigrating to the United States: steadfast commitments, the resilient woman who endures hardships, heartbreaks, love, alienation, poverty, and renewals (Bryant, 2010, p. 202). In this video, Cisneros talks about writing and those who inspired her.
