A Conversation with Academics about Selena is an examination of the life and mythology of Selena through an academic lens. Five prominent feminist scholars, Sandra Cisneros, Ruby Rich, Cherríe Moraga, Yvonne Yarbro-Bejarano and Rosa-Linda Fregoso engage in a lively cultural analysis of Selena, the Tejana pop star who was killed in 1995 by a friend who was the president of her fan club. As the academics try to separate the mythology of Selena from the young woman pressured by her father into a singing career, they confront their own cultural ideology and familial influences.
