Both Paredes’s George Washington Gómez and Anzaldúa’s Borderlands are texts
rooted in the political economy of the south Texas border region. Nevertheless,
each text gives us a distinct representation of a transnational subject that must
negotiate within the racial, economic, cultural, linguistic, and sexual borderlands.
Write one comparative essay in which you analyze the transnational (or border)
subject in George Washington Gómez and Borderlands. For example, how does
Gualinto’s “checkerboard” of consciousness differ experientially and conceptually
from what Anzaldúa calls “mestiza consciousness”? How do race, class, language,
and gender factor into borderland subjectivity in each text?
Use these two books .. George Washigton Gomez by Americo Paredes
Borderlands by Gloria Anzaldua
