  cyborg manifesto 2.0   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
The concept of the mestiza implies a consciousness that is mobile, multiple, nomadic and schizoid.
In sketching out what the mestiza might entail, Gloria Anzaldua point out that borders are places where different cultures, identities, sexualities, classes, geographies, races and genders collide or interchange.
She then claims that the consciousness of the 'new mestiza' - or mixed-race woman - as one involving 'crossing over' and 'perpetual transition', is a useful metaphor for avoiding unitary paradigms and dualistic thought.

La mestiza constantly ahs to shift out of habitual formations; from convergent thinking, analytical reasoning that tends to use rationality to move toward a single goal (a Western mode), to divergent thinking, characterized by movement away from set patterns and goals and toward a more whole perspective, one that includes rather than excludes.
The work of mestiza consciousness is to break down the subject-object duality that keeps her a prisoner and to show in the flesh and through the images in her work how duality is transcended.

Mestizaness then represents never some final transgressive liberating crossing of borders, but an on-going recombination, which changes as different social groups and economic and political forces try to shape this identity formation.
In the Latina’s mestizaness, flness is reduced to an asset, one that adds to her coolness and hipness, but one that is not revolutionary or transformative of a historically normative white (Anglo-European) culture.
But rather than evaluating the mestiza consciousness of the new Latina/o as finally either freeing or restrictive, I have tried to foreground the figure of the Latina as a site of contestation, as a fluid, syncretic identification over which various groups in our contemporary society are struggling for authorizing control.

In a later piece, however, Lugones ties the notion of the new mestiza to what she calls the "logic of curdling," the logic of a being that is multiple but is not fragmented and that has the possibility of resistance (1996, 27-29).
She states that "this plural personality of the new mestiza is anchored in the borders, in that space where critique, rupture and hybridization take place" (1992, 35).

The Mestiza Leadership Institute in Boulder, Co., has made a name for itself since its inception in 1995 as the consulting firm to turn to for tapping into the benefits of multicultural leadership.
Mestiza, the Spanish word for people of Native American and European heritage, seemed a perfect name for Bordas’ new endeavor, which specializes in training and developing a work environment that encourages diversity and effective leadership.
“[Mestiza] signifies that Latinos are mixtures, and that we are so diverse that we can become a model for the whole world,” she says.

 American Passages - Unit 2. Exploring Borderlands: Authors
Gloria Anzaldúa's work is fundamentally concerned with articulating what she calls a "new mestiza consciousness," an identity characterized by hybridity, flexibility, and plurality and focused on the experiences of Chicanas (Mexican American women) and particularly mestizas (Chicana and Mexican women who have mixed Native American and Spanish heritage).
Anzaldúa's complex identity as a woman, a Chicana, a mestiza, and a lesbian is reflected in her pioneering contributions to gender studies, Chicano studies, queer theory, and creative writing.
Because she believes that language and identity are inextricably linked, Anzaldúa's writing often engages in daring narrative innovations intended to reflect the inclusivity of the mestiza identity: by shifting between and combining different genres, points of view, and even languages, she attempts to represent the mestiza's propensity to "shift out of habitual formations.

Writing about external, communal, and individual borderlands from a position on, around, and between those borders, Anzaldúa subversively advocates a political mobilization around the “mestiza consciousness,” for only multiplicity—internal as well as external—can break down the “subject-object duality that keeps her [one] a prisoner” (80).
As she writes of her sexuality, “As a lesbian, I have no race, my own people disclaim me; but I am all races because there is the queer of me in all races” (80).

 MELUS: Liminality and mestiza consciousness in Lynda Barry's One Hundred Demons
In the Philippines, as in other territories colonized by Spain, the mestiza has been reified and imbued with desirability: she's assumed to be closer to power, to the colonizer, which, as Vicente L. Rafael notes, results in "the envy of and for mestiza-ness":
Rafael also underscores that mestizoness has multiplicitous meanings which often supersede significations understood by those who embody its markings: "Mestizoness is the capacity, among other things, to speak in different registers, as if one's identity were overlaid and occupied by other possible ones" (167).
For example, a distinctive and significant aspect of One Hundred Demons is its exploring the complexities of whiteness and its significations for mestizaness in Filipino America: what does it mean to be a white mestiza in America, one who has the ability to try on different identities because she has the privilege of white skin?

Instead, engendered as it is in the “coming together of two self-consistent but habitually incompatible frames of reference,” this feminism speaks in a tongue that is forked even as it mongrelizes its cultural affiliations while embracing moments and processes of ambiguity and contradiction (Anzaldúa 78).
It is in the disorderliness of border experience that we mark the evolution of a mestiza feminist consciousness in the borderlands.
This is why Anzaldúa uses the term “mestiza consciousness” to denote the multiply-encoded nature of Chicana border feminism (77).
