dc.description.abstractMargo Glantz, Nora Glickman, and Ruth Behar are three contemporary Latin American Jewish women writers who have succeeded in creating a literary homeland in the absence of a satisfactory geographic one. They defy the norms of traditional literary genres by combining autobiography, theater, narrative, and collective history in order to create an imaginary realm where their cultural, religious and ethnic diversity may flourish. This study demonstrates how these three writers have redefined Diaspora/diaspora, escaped a seemingly inescapable cultural and geographic exile, and established unique identities through the act of writing.en_US
