Extinct Lands, Temporal Geographies: Chicana Literature and the Urgency of Space (Duke University Press, 2002). Brady integrates Chicana feminism, cultural geography, and literary theory in analyzing an unusual mix of Chicana texts through the concept of space. From nineteenth-century short stories and essays to contemporary fiction, Brady shows how Chicana literature offers a valuable theoretics of space. The book won the Modern Language Association’s first annual MLA Prize in United States Latina and Latino and Chicana and Chicano Literary and Cultural Studies. The MLA calls the book a “lucidly written” study that is “significant in its originality and vision.”
