The Gloria E. Anzaldúa Papers and Other-Than-Humanist Ontologies
Examines little-known works by acclaimed Chicana writer Gloria Anzaldúa, who died from complications related to diabetes in 2004. Building from recent insights in disability studies, particularly Robert McRuer’s critique of neoliberal figurations of “crip” bodies, this chapter analyzes an incomplete memoir, an unpublished short story called “Werejaguar,” and a series of doodles found in the Anzaldúa archive. Favoring imagination over empirical reality, these representations expand human life beyond death, beyond the individual, and beyond Humanist ethics.
