What people need to do is to stop quoting Gloria Anzaldua on borders. We no longer quote Freud to talk about psychoanalysis, Foucault to discuss neoliberalism, Marx on capitalism, and Betty Friedan on feminism. Whatever borders were in 1987, there no longer are. Let’s move on to fresher perspectives.
This is not my suggestion, by the way. It was advanced by this really great scholar at the session I attended today. And it was such a relief to hear somebody say this because I’ve had it up to here with blasted Anzaldua.
