9780822345022: Selenidad: Selena, Latinos, and the Performance of Memory

An outpouring of memorial tributes and public expressions of grief followed the death of the Tejana recording artist Selena Quintanilla Pérez in 1995. The Latina superstar was remembered and mourned in documentaries, magazines, websites, monuments, biographies, murals, look-alike contests, musicals, drag shows, and more. Deborah Paredez explores the significance and broader meanings of this posthumous celebration of Selena, which she labels “Selenidad.” She considers the performer’s career and emergence as an icon within the political and cultural transformations in the United States during the 1990s, a decade that witnessed a “Latin explosion” in culture and commerce alongside a resurgence of anti-immigrant discourse and policy.

Paredez argues that Selena’s death galvanized Latina/o efforts to publicly mourn collective tragedies (such as the murders of young women along the U.S.-Mexico border) and to envision a brighter future. At the same time, reactions to the star’s death catalyzed political jockeying for the Latino vote and corporate attempts to corner the Latino market. Foregrounding the role of performance in the politics of remembering, Paredez unravels the cultural, political, and economic dynamics at work in specific commemorations of Selena. She analyzes Selena’s final concert, the controversy surrounding the memorial erected in the star’s hometown of Corpus Christi, and the political climate that served as the backdrop to the touring musicals Selena Forever and Selena: A Musical Celebration of Life. Paredez considers what “becoming” Selena meant to the young Latinas who auditioned for the biopic Selena, released in 1997, and she surveys a range of Latina/o queer engagements with Selena, including Latina lesbian readings of the star’s death scene and queer Selena drag. Selenidad is a provocative exploration of how commemorations of Selena reflected and changed Latinidad.

From the Publisher:

"Selena, as Deborah Paredez compellingly shows, functions as a cultural hinge figure: issues pertaining to economics, ethnic identity, music, body language, sexuality, and politics are all negotiated around and through her body. More than that, Paredez demonstrates that the mourning around the star's death--the outpouring of grief by Latinos and the reluctant observance by mainstream audiences--enacts the troubled relationship of Latinos and the mainstream generally."--Diana Taylor, author of The Archive and the Repertoire: Cultural Memory and Performance in the Americas

From the Back Cover:

"In this outstanding book, Deborah Paredez teaches us important lessons about the politics of Latinidad. She makes insightful connections between Selena's memorialization and contemporary issues including U.S. policy toward Latinos, the continued relevance of Texas's colonial and conquest history, the political economy of NAFTA, and even strategies for containing urban popular expression."--Arlene Davila, author of "Latinos, Inc.: The Marketing and Making of a People"

Descripción Duke University Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Selenidad: Selena, Latinos, and the Performance of Memory, Deborah Paredez, An outpouring of memorial tributes and public expressions of grief followed the 1995 death of the Tejana recording artist Selena Quintanilla Perez. The Latina superstar was remembered and mourned in documentaries, magazines, Web sites, monuments, biographies, murals, look-alike contests, musicals, drag shows, and more. Calling these and other acts of mourning the slain star Selenidad, Deborah Paredez explores their significance and the broader meanings of remembering Selena. She considers the performer's career and emergence as a posthumous icon within political and cultural transformations in the United States during the 1990s, the decade that witnessed a 'Latin explosion' in culture and commerce alongside a resurgence of anti-immigrant discourse and policy.

Foregrounding the role of performance in the politics of remembering, Paredez unravels the cultural, economic, and political dynamics at work in specific commemorations of Selena. She analyzes Selena's final concert, the controversy surrounding the memorial erected in the star's hometown of Corpus Christi, and the political climate that served as the backdrop to the touring musicals "Selena Forever" (2000) and "Selena: A Musical Celebration of Life" (2001). Paredez considers what 'becoming' Selena meant to the young Latinas who auditioned for the 1997 biopic Selena, and she surveys a range of Latina/o queer engagements with Selena, including Latina lesbian readings of the star's death scene and queer Selena drag.
