Dr. Laura Halperin

  • Intersections of Harm: Narratives of Latina Deviance and Defiance, Rutgers University Press (July 2015). In Intersections of Harm, Halperin examines literary representations of harm inflicted on Latinas’ minds and bodies, and on the places Latinas inhabit, but she also explores how hope can be found amid so much harm. Analyzing contemporary memoirs and novels by Irene Vilar, Loida Maritza Pérez, Ana Castillo, Cristina García, and Julia Alvarez, she argues that the individual harm experienced by Latinas needs to be understood in relation to the collective histories of aggression against their communities. Intersections of Harm is Halperin’s first book and is part of the American Literatures Initiative Series.
