Linda Margarita Greenberg is Associate Professor of English and the Director of the Center for the Study of Genders and Sexualities at California State University, Los Angeles. She is currently finishing a book project on the Chicana author, Helena María Viramontes, that situates Viramontes’ fiction within the context of the Chicano/a movement, transnational feminism, ecocriticism, and cultural memory. Her next book project will undertake a historical account of racial and gendered narratives about undocumented immigrants to the United States from the late nineteenth century to the present, examining how these narratives present fears of overly porous national boundaries, the indiscriminate flow of desired undesirables, and transnational miscegenations that render contingent the bodies of citizen and state.
