Summary

Poetry. Latin American Studies. THE NEW WORLD BORDER is a new collection of essays, poems, and performance text through which Gomez-Pena muses on matters of race, nationality, language, and identity. The book is a carnivalesque inversion of ethnic and geo-political ideology, a disorienting free-fall into the space between cultures, and a head-on collision with real and imagined borders. Gomez-Pena won international acclaim for his efforts to create a hybrid culture and articulate a borderless ethos, and has been called an intercultural interpreter, reverse anthropologist, experimental linguist, and political artist of the first order. The Village Voice proclaims "In everything he does, he remains an indomitably playful phrasemaker; a fertile rethinker of contradictions, clichA[aAs, and conundrums; and an inspiring recruiter for a playground army of cultural pluralists."
