This thesis examines the potential of graphic novels as a site for alternative representation of Chicana/Latina and Asian American women’s racial/ethnic, gender, and sexual identities. I establish a concept of “alternative representation” through models of differential/mestiza consciousness and “third space” texts and synthesize a method of analyzing graphic novels as a specific medium. With these foundations in place, I examine the textual strategies used in three different graphic novels – Jaime Hernandez’s Love and Rockets: Flies on the Ceiling, Jaime Cortez’s Sexile/Sexilio, and Lynda Barry’s One! Hundred! Demons!– to create representations that subvert hegemonic, binary notions of identity formation and consciousness while acknowledging the role played by dominant sociocultural forces in shaping identity.
