Sažetak
The borderlands has for some time been a key symbol and site, whether symbolic or material, of new developments in American studies. Anzaldua's timely intervention simultaneously into the fields of American, ethnic and postcolonial studies, engaging also the intersection of a new ethnography and anthropology, continues to imbue the work in new American studies which take as their starting point this simultaneously sub-national and trans-national phenomenon. Multiple implications of the borderlands primarily as a site of global economic flows, of people, goods and money, but also a stage for the clash of the global North and the South, and the ways they inform the very latest works in literature and visual culture will be exemplified by readings of the recent US-Mexican film The Sleep Dealer by Alex Rivera (2008), and the novels The Tortilla Curtain (1995) by T. Coraghessan Boyle and Tropic of Orange (1997) by Karen Tei Yamashita. Such artefacts testify to interesting shifts in the conceptualization of the borderlands paradigm, which complicate the celebratory implications attributed to the concept and to the new, post-national and transnational disciplinary guise, and raise questions as to its investment in the new globalized economic imperialism of the North, represented by the USA.
