Writing and Sharing
I'm in the process of reading for my writing projects. The new material is most interesting as it seems to indicate that the need to communicate ran deep and strong during early eras in history among a group of women who had very little to join them in a community. I'm finding the ways that they use the contexts of their environment and their rhetorical strategies are ways well known to linguists and women's studies professionals. The Submissive Subversive Rhetoric as I call it lingers to this day amongst many writings put forth by current Latinas. I'm theorizing a bit and need to do more research but I intuit that so called magic realism may in fact be a creative way to continue the submissive subversive pose.
