Three Decades of Engendering History

Selected Works of Antonia I. Castaneda

Edited by Linda Heidenreich with Antonia I. Castañeda    
Original Interviews by Luz María Gordillo    
Conclusion by Deena J. González

Three Decades of Engendering History collects ten of Antonia I. Castañeda’s best articles, including the widely circulated article “Engendering the History of Alta California, 1769–1848,” in which Castañeda took a direct and honest look at sex and gender relations in colonial California, exposing stories of violence against women as well as stories of survival and resistance. Other articles included are the prize-winning “Women of Color and the Rewriting of Western History,” and two recent articles, “Lullabies y Canciones de Cuna” and “La Despedida.” The latter two represent Castañeda’s most recent work excavating, mapping, and bringing forth the long and strong post-WWII history of Tejanas. Finally, the volume includes three interviews with Antonia Castañeda that contribute the important narrative of her lived experience—the “theory in the flesh” and politics of necessity that fueled her commitment to transformative scholarship that highlights gender and Chicanas as a legitimate line of inquiry.

LINDA HEIDENREICH is associate professor of Critical Culture, Gender, and Race Studies at Washington State University, Pullman, and the author of “This Land Was Mexican Once”: Histories of Resistance from Northern California.
