dc.description.abstractThis study contains a critical analysis of Judith Ortiz Cofer‟s selected works. It offers a portrayal of a voice in the diaspora that successfully transcends the voice of victimization and empowers the uncertain position of minorities within the binaries of place, space and gender while depicting a unique Puerto Rican experience. This thesis examines how Ortiz Cofer‟s constant circular migration allows her not only to empower a voice in several interstitial spaces, but also, to represent how the individual deals with such spaces.en_US
dc.description.abstractEsta investigación contiene un análisis crítico de una selección de textos de Judith Ortiz Cofer. La misma representa la voz de la diáspora que exitosamente trasciende la voz de victimización y empodera las minorías en los binarismos de espacio, lugar, y género mientras provee una experiencia única de la puertorriqueñidad. Por otra parte, esta tesis examina cómo los patrones migratorios circulatorios de Ortiz Cofer le permiten no solo fortalecer la voz de la diáspora en los espacios intersticiales, también representa cómo los individuos lidian con dichos espacios.en_US
