In the light of the MLA’s recent efforts to restructure its divisions and discussion groups, this roundtable will reflect on the role of Chicana/o literature in the MLA and other institutions. What do we want this division to be as we move further into the twenty-first century, and how do we imagine Chicana/o literature in relation to other US Latina/o literatures?
