Description

This volume of essays studies the innovative discourse introduced by Latin American and Chicana writers who claim the kitchen space as a "room of their own", not only as an essential space for women's intellectual and spiritual advancement, but as a self-empowering site where gender and sexual identity may be explored and transformed.
