Is contemporary Chicana/o literature only written by Mexican Americans? Is it only written by and about the people surrounding the Chicana/o Movement? Can it be written by Mexican nationals too? No? I know Carlos Santana isn’t a writer, but what about Carlos Santana? Isn’t he Chicano? Because he was definitely Mexican. And if he’s Chicano, who is to say isn’t Chicano? Is he Chicano? Am I a Chicano writer? Can Millenials—two generations removed from the Chicana/o Movement–be Chicana/o writers?
