There has been a rich history of literary texts representing the immigrant experience in New York City. Both Rivera and Diaz continue with this tradition by rendering vivid representations of the struggles their characters undergo to achieve an identity within the fluidness of New York City. The presentation will center on the “American Experience” as represented by these two well-known Latino-American writers.
