    Title:  The Staging of Heteropatriarchal Violence and its Traumatic Aftermath in Adelina Anthony's Bruising for Besos and Dulce Maria Solis's CHELA
    Abstract:   Working from the juncture points of Latina feminist studies, trauma discourse, and theater studies, this essay discusses the work of two Latina playwrights and performers, Adelina Anthony and Dulce Maria Solis, and their staging of the trauma of institutionalized heteropatriarchal violence in their individual plays Bruising for Besos and CHELA (both published in Chicana/Latina Studies, vol. 9, no. 2 and vol. 12, no. 1, respectively). Through dramaturgical analysis of the published scripts and live performances, the author explores how Anthony and Solis use testimonio to document and define institutionalized violence. The essay opens with a discussion of Cherríe Moraga’s essays and plays as foundational to its reading of how Anthony and Solis’s plays illustrate the role of testimony in the process of navigating through the traumatic aftermath of heteropatriarchal violence. Drawing on her interviews with the playwrights and her dramaturgical work preparing the scripts for publication, the author also looks at how these dramatists and performers understand the potential of their plays to foster realizations about one’s relationship to heteropatriarchal violence and thereby open up avenues for personal and social change.

    Title:  Institutional Academic Violence: Racial and Gendered Microagressions in Higher Education
    Abstract:   This work is based on two women--a Chicana and a Native American--from twenty-one women’s testimonios of self-identified low-income or working class women who are pursuing doctorate degrees in the humanities, social sciences, forestry, and education. To better understand women’s racial and gendered educational experiences as “U.S. Women of Color,”3 I critically examine articulation of their experiences navigating through institutional violence via racial and gendered microaggressions in higher education and within everyday racism, white privilege, and complex power relations.

    Title:  Through a President's Eyes: Reflections on Institutional Violence
    Abstract:   Chicana feminist scholars have come a long way since the Civil Rights movement and have built an impressive infrastructure for our work. However, political polarization, conservatism, and lack of institutional resources place those gains at risk. Scholars, who commonly face institutional violence, also conform to the successes of Chicanos/Latinos as a whole, leaving gender and marginalized identities out of the equation. However, assimilation for mere inclusion would mean abandonment of hard-fought struggle with lack of safe spaces to do work that matters. This essay reflects on struggles to promote equality and diversity in higher education. Although some may believe that holding a high administrative position means fewer encounters with resistance and hostility, this is not the case. As president of a university, I have become more vulnerable to attacks and have been openly challenged by those who oppose women in the academy, as well as those who collude with institutions—including some allies. Because of current difficulties, we must continue to create that critical mass necessary to move us forward, and thus prevent us from falling further back into the margins of academia.

    Title:  Teaching Ethnic Studies in Times of Perpetual Racialized Warfare
    Abstract:   The social mobilizations for justice carried out by communities of color during the 1960s and 1970s included a demand for inclusion into academic spaces. They did not only seek physical inclusion, but they understood knowledge production as implicated in power. In part through their participation in academia, these communities sought to transform their material realities. The creation of Ethnic Studies was central to this endeavor. Simultaneously, their rebelliousness was met with a radical reorganization by the state that responded to the perceived loss of state authority with the militarization of society, evidenced in the discourse of warfare deployed against constructed threats. Criminalization and imprisonment of communities of color became central tools for this reorganizing project. The author interrogates what it means for Ethnic Studies teachers that their students, and often themselves, form part of communities under siege. Using feminist testimonio, the author demonstrates how racial violence follows students of color into academia and suggests the adoption of abolition pedagogy by Ethnic Studies teachers to address some of the violence students and their communities’ experience.

    Title:  Chicana Feminist Praxis: Community Accountability Coalitions in the University
    Abstract:   Chicana feminist and queer political subjectivities face a constant battle for their survival within the university. At California State University, Long Beach (CSU Long Beach), the collective Conciencia Femenil worked in coalition with Chicana faculty from Chicano/Latino Studies to create intergenerational Chicana feminist insurgencies toward dismantling institutional heteropatriarchal hierarchies. This article delineates the strategy of community accountability engaging different sectors of the university in our aim to contest and transform institutional violence.

    Title:  When Social Media Become Social Justice: Denuncias inside/outside Chicano/a Studies
    Abstract:   This article explores the connections and lessons learned in confronting heteropatriarchal violence across the various locations of Chicano Studies inside and outside the academy, specifically focusing on lessons that emerge from online zines, social media, and the public denouncement of abusers by two women of color and queer activist zines, QUARREL and MalintZINE. Community accountability practices such as denuncia, harm reduction, and the reclaiming / flipping back of feminine and queer monstrosity are detailed as examples of how the zines document dignity-centered community building alternatives to violence. Bridging the community-academia divide allows us to consider the diverse forms of institutionalization that maintain heteropatriarchy and locate ways to engage various institutional limits that reproduce violence. By analyzing the creative alternatives of community-based accountability processes, this article presents examples of how community activism can support creating greater gender justice within Chicano Studies programs.
