Gloria Anzaldúa Luncheon Honors Playwright/Poet Cherríe Moraga
Posted: February 7, 2012
Stanford Artist-in-Residence Cherríe Moraga, a feminist playwright, poet, and essayist, will speak at the Gloria Anzaldúa Luncheon Honoring Feminists of Color at the University of Texas on February 10, 2012, an event hosted by the Gender and Sexuality Center and Queer People of Color and Allies.
Moraga coedited This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color (1981) with Anzaldúa, the cultural theorist, writer, and teacher who was a guiding force in the Chicana/o movement in the 1960s and 1970s and in lesbian/queer theory. The papers of Anzaldúa, who grew up in the Rio Grande Valley, are archived in the Benson Latin American Collection.
Moraga teaches courses on creative writing at Stanford, as well as Xicana-indigenous performance and Latino/queer performance, among others. She recently completed a new collection of writings, A Xicana Codex of Changing Consciousness: A Decade of Discourse (Duke University Press, 2011).
The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and lunch will be provided only to those who RSVP via e-mail by February 8.
