Detail from “A Typical Mexican Girl, 2010″ by Gloria Holguín Cuádraz

This issue of Chicana/Latina Studies is grounded by the vital question: What does it mean to unearth voices and how do we do this? Whether we are scholars, administrators, literary or visual artists, working across the genres of critical analysis and creative thought, we both, individually and collectively, grapple with the process of coming into voice and speaking our stories. Artistic self-expression and critical analysis are highly politicized acts for they are constituted within a historical framework where our painting on canvas or with words has been forcibly controlled and denigrated on multiple levels.
