Paloma Martinez-Cruz

 

 


 

Paloma Martinez-Cruz, Ph.D. works in the area of contemporary hemispheric cultural production, women of color feminism, performance, and alternative epistemologies. Martinez-Cruz’ book entitled Women and Knowledge in Mesoamerica: From East L.A. to Anahuac (University of Arizona Press, 2011) argues that healing traditions among Mesoamerican women constitute a hemispheric intellectual lineage that thrives despite the legacy of colonization. She is the translator of Ponciá Vicencio, the debut novel by Afro-Brazilian author Conceição Evaristo, about a young Afro-Brazilian woman's journey from the land of her enslaved ancestors to the multiple dislocations produced by urban life. She is the editor of Rebeldes: A Proyecto Latina Anthology, a collection of stories and art from 26 Latina women from the Midwest and beyond. Currently Martinez-Cruz is at work on a book publication examining the resistance fronts found in Chicano/a popular culture entitled Breaking the Bean Scene: Anarcho-Utopias after Aztlán.
