Noting that interviews were, like writing, an important part of communicating, she published in 2000 with Ana Louise Keating the collection , which included selected interviews from 1982 to 1999. Rather than continue with the dissertation she had drafted in the early 1990s, she entirely revised her dissertation project, incorporating previously published essays and writing several new chapters.
Again collaborating with Keating, she published the highly anticipated anthology, , in 2002.
In 1974, Anzaldúa decided to return to the University of Texas at Austin to continue her graduate studies at the doctoral level in literature.
During these years, Anzaldúa also worked with a variety of political groups, including MECHA, farm worker protests, and feminist organizations and consciousness-raising groups. This awareness was the first step in her decision to edit the anthology which would later become .

Anzaldúa taught pre-school, special education classes, and high school for several years in the Valley, while also attending summer graduate classes at the University of Texas at Austin, where she earned her master's degree in English and Education in 1972.
She then served as a liaison between migrant camps and school officials in Indiana, and it was during her time there that she began her writing in earnest.
