Abstract:Decolonial Delinquency studies the representation of violence and criminality in Latina/o literature and film since 1950. The project analyzes a range of genres, including fiction, autobiography, poetry, and documentary, to uncover how cultural production discloses a systemic impetus to gang violence in working-class communities of color. In doing so, this dissertation reveals how these texts position gangs as resistant subcultures for persons whom the United States colonizes.
