    Title:  The Muxerista Portraitist: Engaging Portraiture and Chicana Feminist Theories in Qualitative Research
    Abstract:   In this article, the author outlines Muxerista Portraiture, an epistemological and methodological approach for qualitative research. In the spirit of portraiture and Chicana feminisms, the author begins by sharing her mother’s story to illustrate how it inspired her to study Chicana mother-daughter pedagogies and encouraged her to create nueva teoría. She then traces the relationship between portraiture and Chicana feminist theories to show where they connect and diverge. Using her cultural intuition, she argues for the collaboration of portraiture and Chicana feminist theories in qualitative research. In an effort to build a case for Muxerista Portraiture, she explains the five elements of portraiture (context, voice, relationships, emergent themes, and aesthetic whole) in a way that engages and is informed by Chicana feminist theories.

    Title:  Re-Mapping Queer Desire(s) on Greater Los Angeles: The Decolonial Topographies of Aurora Guerrero and Dalila Paola Méndez
    Abstract:   This essay explores the work of cultural producers who envision decolonial topographies across aesthetic disciplines to interrogate issues of sexuality, gender, class, and race in Los Angeles, thus remapping commercial representations of the metropolis. I focus on film director Aurora Guerrero and visual artist Dalila Paola Méndez who feature the experiences of queer, working-class and immigrant women in their visual renderings. Through their aesthetic representations, Guerrero and Méndez offer political mandates for cultural and economic transformation. They present these critical provocations asking audiences to examine sexual and gender identity alongside environmental racism and gentrification. Focusing on the critical interventions of these artists, I explore contemporary articulations of queer Latina subjectivities through multiple modes of artistic practice with particular attention to how their work remaps and reimagines the political and aesthetic landscapes of Los Angeles. I theorize how these artists rearticulate images of Los Angeles as topographies on which to negotiate divergent and analogous relationships to the urban landscape in relation to queer and working-class Latina/o communities.
