    Title:  Crossing the Border with La Adelita: Lucha-Adelucha as Nepantlera in Delilah Montoya's Codex Delilah
    Abstract:   In 1992, to mark the five-hundredth anniversary of Columbus's arrival in the New World, San Francisco's Mexican Museum produced an exhibit titled The Chicano Codices: Encountering Art of the Americas. Chicana photographer Delilah Montoya created an artist's book, Codex Delilah, Six-Deer: Journey from Mechica to Chicana, whose central character, an indigenous girl named Six-Deer, meets iconic figures from the Mexicana/Chicana pantheon over a 520-year period. This essay examines a character from the work's fifth panel, Lucha-Adelucha, a representation of La Adelita, the soldadera figure associated with the Mexican Revolution. The work traces representations of La Adelita within historical documents, the pictorial archive, the corrido, Chicana feminist recuperations, and Codex Delilah. Braiding together approaches from Chicana feminism, anthropology, art history, and queer theory, the study adopts the trenza paradigm as its analytical frame. Positioning Lucha-Adelucha as emblematic of multiple border crossings that include gender, sexual expression, and femininity/masculinity, and as an example of a nepantlera, the work argues for an interpretation of this figure as a visual representation that transgresses the confines of heteronormativity.

Using an interdisciplinary and cultural studies analysis, the essay addresses changes in the historical, material, and social development of knowledge production by Chicanas over the last few decades leading up to the new century. Set within the grammatical of a "future perfect," the essay also takes aim at the antiessentialist and antiutopian academy as it moves into a global and transnational frame. Chicanas have situated their analysis in cultural studies because of its interdisciplinary framing and intersectional concerns with feminist studies. Chicanas have developed a prodigious feminist approach that incorporates many unique elements that resist both the nationalist and foundationalist claims made by...
