dc.description.abstractIn this twofold examination, I provide rhetorical analysis of Chicanas Speak Out: Women: New Voice of La Raza by Mirta Vidal, and in collaboration with Dr. Amy N. Heuman, we provide critical cultural analysis of the Aztlán Mural in Lubbock, Texas through Latino/a visual epideictic rhetoric. Within each analysis, the intersectionality of race, struggle, and Latino/a presence is explored through the cultural renderings of text and community art. Each study highlights the importance of honoring how Latino/a spaces and places rhetorically communicate their complex history of struggle, marginalization and subjugation through a visionary rhetoric and ethnic pride. These studies contribute to our field by extending the transformative theoretical framework of Chicana critical rhetoric and Latino/a visual epideictic rhetoric.
