DescriptionPoetry. Literary Nonfiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Native American Studies. Women's Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. In homage to Gloria Anzaldua and her iconic work BORDERLANDS/LA FRONTERA, award-winning poets ire'ne lara silva and Dan Vera have assembled the work of 54 writers who reflect on the complex terrain the deeply felt psychic, social, and geopolitical borderlands that Anzaldua inhabited, theorized, explored, and invented.
Named for the Nahuatl word meaning "their soul," IMANIMAN presents work that is sparked from the soul: the individual soul, the communal soul. These poets interrogate, complicate, and personalize the borderlands in transgressive and transformative ways, opening new paths and revisioning old ones for the next generation of spiritual, political, and cultural border crossers.
"Within shifting borders it is good to enter into these voice worlds to stand, bow & listen in their presence. Peoples, familias, cities, towns, rancherias and the wilderness of all border-crossers & messengers of border spaces open in these pages." from the Introduction by Juan Felipe Herrera, US Poet Laureate"
