Stages of Life
Stages of Life Transcultural Performance & Identity in U.S. Latina Theater By Sandoval-Sánchez, Alberto (Book - 2001 ) Available by request Availability details

Annotation:Area: Related Topics (Latino/a Theatre & Non-Latino Audiences): This book is primarily focused on transculturation of Latina Theater in 20th Century America. REquired reading will include an excerpt from Sandoval-Sánchez's "Rehearsing Transculturation" (Chapter One) which examines this term first coined by Cuban anthropologist Fernando Ortíz (1940, 1947): Transculturation is translated as being an historical process “of transition from one culture to another, because this does not consist merely in acquiring another culture, which is what the English word ‘acculturation’ really implies, but the process also necessarily involves the loss or uprooting of a previous culture, which could be defined as a deculturation. In addition, it carries the idea of the consequent creation of new cultural phenomena, which could be called neoculturation.” (Ortíz 1947:102-3)

Annotation:Area: Key Figures and Biography: This is a very readable and current autobiography, but frustrating in design as there is no index in which to search topics.
