    Title:  Cyborg Bodies, Strategies of Consciousness, and Ecological Revolution in the México-US Borderlands
    Abstract:   Alex Rivera’s 2008 science fiction film, Sleep Dealer, visualizes broad implications regarding the recovery of historical memory as a form of cultural resistance to a world in which the masculinist gendering of technology threatens individual and collective identity. This paper explores Gloria Anzaldúa’s theories surrounding the mestiza body, conocimiento, and nepantla as they relate to Sleep Dealer to develop the possibilities inherent to Chela Sandoval’s emancipatory method of oppositional consciousness. The third-space methodologies of Anzaldúa and Sandoval help chart a counternarrative against an environmentally inequitable hegemonic enterprise that, in the film, is positioned between bodily materiality and an increasingly destructive political and militarized border. To further contextualize a critique of borderlands labor power that culminates in ecological revolution, I apply Homi Bhabha’s ideas surrounding the third space. The works of these scholars allow me to tie the decolonizing movements of the film’s main characters to broader ideas of environmental racism and social justice on the borderlands.

    Title:  Mexicanidades de la Diáspora Asiatica: Considerations of Gender, Race, and Class in the Treatment of Japanese Mexicans During WWII
    Abstract:   This article examines the Japanese Mexican relocation program during WWII, discussing notions of mestizaje, race, and gender that affected men and women of Japanese descent through the Japanese Mexican relocation program of 1942. During the period preceding World War II, children of Asian immigrants in Mexico, particularly those whose mothers were Mexican, created hybrid forms of cultural identification that challenged hegemonic ideas of nationality, citizenship, and mestizaje. Borderlanders of Japanese descent wove a social fabric across ethnic lines that helped them to soften the social and political limits dividing racialized communities in México. World War II, however, reconfigured gender and race boundaries destabilizing gender roles as well as national and racial identities. In line with Anzaldúa’s view of the mestiza as an agent of social transformation who merges two seemingly opposite cultures in her body, this paper demonstrates the role of mestizaje in the civic engagement and mobilization during the Second Great War.
