Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Marta Sánchez Papers (1953-2013) document the professional career of Dr. Sánchez and include materials created during her tenure as a professor at the University of California, San Diego. The bulk of the collection dates from 1985-2010. Materials include lecture notes, syllabi, student work, journal articles, correspondence, press clippings, book pre-publication drafts, and conference papers. The collection is divided into four series: Academic Files, Book Pre-Publication Drafts, Research and Writings, and Conference Papers.

Academic Files (1955-2013), arranged alphabetically, consist largely of annotated journal articles and lecture notes. The lecture notes highlight key passages and topical themes from the texts. The series also includes binders created for specific courses which contain research, lecture notes, class assignments, and handouts.

The Book Pre-Publication Drafts series (1997-2003) is arranged chronologically and documents six years of preparation for her book, “Shakin' Up" Race and Gender: Intercultural Connections in Puerto Rican, African American, and Chicano Narratives and Culture (1965-1995), published in 2005. Notable in this series is feedback from the writing group Sánchez consulted throughout the writing process.

Research and Writings (1953-2004) is arranged alphabetically by topic or author. The bulk of the materials consists of research related to Sánchez’s writings. The series also contains several published articles written by Sánchez.

The Conference Papers series (1995-2008) is arranged alphabetically by conference organizer. In addition to copies of Sánchez’s conference papers, this series contains her preparatory notes, research, and conference materials such as programs, schedules, and name badges. Conference topics include the Chicana/o experience, feminist readings, and Latina/o literature.

Biographical Note

The daughter of immigrants, Marta Sánchez was born and raised in East Los Angeles with her two siblings. Hers is the first generation of her family to enter higher education. Sánchez received her doctorate in Comparative Literature from the University of California, San Diego in 1977. She began her career there, and remained as a professor from 1977 to 2004. Her teaching areas included Chicano, Latin American, and U.S. Ethnic Literature.

Marta Sánchez is the author of Contemporary Chicana Poetry: A Critical Approach to an Emerging Literature (University of California Press, 1985), the first published work that critically analyzes Chicana poetry. Her most recent book, published in 2005 by the University of Texas Press, is entitled “Shakin’ Up” Race and Gender: Intercultural Connections in Puerto Rican, African American and Chicano Narratives and Culture (1965-1995).  Her scholarship has also appeared in PMLA, MELUS, American Literature, American Literary History, Diacritics, and Genders.

Sánchez has been the recipient of numerous fellowships, including the National Chicano Council for Higher Education, the Ford Foundation, the Stanford Humanities Center, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the University of California President’s Office. At UCSD, she participated in the founding of the Preuss Charter School, a program designed for middle and high school students aimed at addressing the low college enrollments of Latino and African American students. She served on its Advisory Board from 2000 to 2004. She has also served on the editorial boards of Meridians: Feminism, Race, Transnationalism, Genders, and Voces: Journal of Chicana/Latina Studies.

As of 2015, Marta Sánchez is a professor in the Department of Transborder Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies at Arizona State University.
