“Catching Fire”: 35 Years of Living this Bridge Called my Back: Dr. Sandy K. Soto - The Claudia Baltazar Lecture on Women of Color, Thought and Activism

Event date and time

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 - 4:15pm


In “‘Catching Fire,’” Sandra K. Soto tracks the rich itinerary of the groundbreaking anthology, This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color (1981), edited by Cherríe Moraga & Gloria Anzaldúa. Reading Bridge as a unique feminist palimpsest—as a dynamic, living process spanning 35 years and four editions—Soto offers fresh insights about feminist publishing, women of color feminism, identity politics, consciousness-raising, and the pleasure and pain involved with collaboration.
