A note from the author of Mi casa de los Espíritus:
This paper draws on magical feminism, a writing that engages in a critic of patriarchy through inexplicable events that address gender inequality and the power of the oppressed. This magic has always been in me but always dormant in my academic writing. To let this magic out has required to let myself go into a form of magical embodiment in my methods: I engage in a spiritual excavation to let emerge three Latin American feminist myths and legends that are in me to recover from vicarious violence and come back to the world. This experience opens the gates to engage with a colonial past and to celebrate other systems of belief. This paper is an invitation for those who will join to mobilize our magical forces for the recognition of knowledge production in moments of magic as legitimate.
