This thesis focuses on the relationships between transnationalism, as social and cultural phenomenon, and literature, taking as study cases three recent Chicana narratives. This study attempts to demonstrate that, on the one hand, there is a fundamental connection between transnationalism and recent Mexican-Americans' literary forms; and, on the other, that transnationalism is not only a political and economic phenomenon, but also a cultural structure which affects and transforms cultural and artistics notions and manifestations, such as literature.
