Just Another Poster? investigates the critical role posters and other graphic materials played in the Chicano struggle for self-determination in California, from the borderland of San Diego to the urban metropolis of San Francisco. This volume of essays by an interdisciplinary group of scholars and curators represents the first comprehensive study of the ways the poster, as a medium of expression largely relegated to the margins of art world display, distribution, and critical reception, has been a primary form of cultural expression within Chicano communities in California and across America. Chon Noriega is associate professor of film and television at the Univerity of Califonria at Los Angeles. The other contributors include JosŽ Montoya, George Lipsitz, Tere Romo, Holly Barnet-Sanchez, Rafael PŽrez-Torres, and Carol A. Wells.
