Latino American Literature in the Classroom: The Politics of Transformation

Latino American Literature in the Classroom: The Politics of Transformation

According to The Orange Grove, "In this original look at how ethnic literature enters the U.S. 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 U.S./Mexico border: both are in danger of erasing those cultural traits that made the border crossers important."
