An Analysis of Housing, Violence, and Dreams Deferred in Ernesto Quiñonez’s ‘Bodega Dreams’

This is a paper I presented at the Siglo XXI conference in February 2012. The abstract was a joint effort by Dr. Arlene Torres and myself in preparation for the conference. The theme of this year’s conference was “the future of Latinos in a time of crisis”, with this in mind (and following Arlene’s suggestion that this would be a great topic on which to write) I began working on a literary analysis of Ernesto Quinonez’s novel Bodega Dreams using Arlene Davila’s ethnographic text, Barrio Dreams, as a lens. I welcome any feedback on my work here on my blog or via email.
