Summary "First mentioned by Gloria AnzaldĂșa in her pioneering book Borderlands/La Frontera, spiritual mestizaje is a transformative process of excavating bodily memory to develop a radical, sustained critique of oppression and renew one's relation to the sacred. Theresa Delgadillo analyzes the role of spiritual mestizaje in AnzaldĂșa's work and in relation to other forms of spirituality and theories of oppression."--Back cover
