Constructing Mestiza Consciousness: Gloria Anzaldúa’S Literary Techniques In Borderlands/La Frontera—The New Mestiza, Tereza Kynclová
Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge
In this essay I argue that the literary techniques in Borderlands/La Frontera--The New Mestiza as well as the form of the book are means by which Anzaldúa (also) renders her identity politics-the Mestiza consciousness. In other words, Mestiza consciousness does not come into being solely through the content of the book and the meaning of Anzaldúa's written words. It is chiseled also by a unique employment of multiple literary techniques that themselves embody a meaning and/or a value by which a layer of the writer's identity is implied. The essay provides an analysis of the strategic ...

The Vietnam War And Its Detrimental Effects On Chicanos, Juan Carlos Trejo
Dissertations, Theses and Capstone Projects
The purpose of this essay is to discuss the possibility that the Vietnam War could have been a stepping stone in the socio-economic ladder for Mexican-Americans; and why many Chicanos did indeed see the war as an opportunity for social mobility. In addition, I will discuss how in reality the war did not bring advancement to the Chicano veteran. The idea that the Vietnam War could have been a way for Chicanos to become upwardly mobile is connected to the idea that World War II created some positive outcomes for African-Americans as well as other minorities including White minorities who ...
Ruffians And Revolutionaries: The Development Of The Young Lords Organization In Chicago,
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Ruffians And Revolutionaries: The Development Of The Young Lords Organization In Chicago, Michael Robert Gonzales
Theses and Dissertations
The Young Lords began as a street "gang" in the early 1960s in the western Puerto Rican section of Chicago's Lincoln Park community area. In late 1968, some of the group's leaders began to embrace radical politics and the Young Lords changed from a social group into a political organization. By examining the various factors that led to the politicization of the group's leaders and informed their organizing, this thesis works to provide a better understanding of the Young Lords movement. More specifically, this study looks at how local social pressures, traditions of radical organizing, and efforts ...

The Meaning Of The Browning Of America, Miren Uriarte
Gastón Institute Publications
Many of you are in the same position that many of us are in the academy or at the community level. We have two jobs. That of doing the work we are paid to do - be it research or anything else - as well as developing the awareness of those around us of the particular needs of Latinos in the hopes of having the community receive a more equitable treatment.
In my experience, there is no other way to accomplish both jobs and remain sane without getting together with others in the same situation and discussing strategies and action. I salute ...

Due to the increasing population of Latino students in the Iowa secondary agricultural education program and the need for minority leaders in agriculture, the goal of this study was to survey a group of students in agricultural classes to understand their perspectives towards the learning components of the program. This study found that Latino students in Iowa secondary schools were supportive of the agricultural education program and interested in participating in experiential programs. Recommendations from this study are to encourage Latino students to actively participate in secondary agricultural classes. A greater effort from educators to recruit and research minority students ...
Crossing Borderlands: The Face Of Chicana Border Literature,
Boise State University
Crossing Borderlands: The Face Of Chicana Border Literature, Irene Ruiz
McNair Scholars Research Journal
Chicana literature details the trials and tribulations of Chicana life at the borderlands of the United States and Mexico. In particular it focuses on different challenges Chicana women face at the borderlands they must cross. While borderlands are usually represented as physical, many are not. Using Sandra Cisneros’ Women Hollering Creek, Denise Chavez’s Loving Pedro Infante, Maria Amparo Escandon’s Esperanza’s Box of Saints, and Alicia Gaspar de Alba’s, The Mystery of Survival, I will explore several common themes that relate to Chicana identity and the struggles that they must go through to overcome these barriers. I ...
Target Language Use And Teaching For Intercultural Competence In Novice Level Spanish Courses: Comparing Practices And Perspectives In High School And University Classrooms,

Target Language Use And Teaching For Intercultural Competence In Novice Level Spanish Courses: Comparing Practices And Perspectives In High School And University Classrooms, Leah Shepard
Intercultural competence: We have heard about it, but do language instructors know how to teach it? Is it possible to maintain maximal target language use while doing so? This study investigates the perspectives and practices of intercultural competence and target language use at the novice language levels and also further investigates the connections and differences between high school language settings and university language settings within the implementation of this concept. The 13 participants in the study included a combination of Spanish department faculty at a small liberal arts institution in the Midwest, and alumni that completed the Spanish and teacher ...
Islamophobia/Hispanophobia: The (Re) Conﬁguration Of The Racial Imperial/Colonial Matrix,
Islamophobia/Hispanophobia: The (Re) Conﬁguration Of The Racial Imperial/Colonial Matrix, Walter D. Mignolo
Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge
There are enormous historical and social differences in the imperial making of Islamophobia--the fear and the hatred toward a powerful and widespread religion--and Hispanophobia--the fear and hatred toward secular subaltern forces with mixed religious beliefs that emerged in the seventies in the U.S. without the extended political connections or support from "Latin America." We need to understand how the imperial imaginary constructs phobias in the mind of civil society, but at the same time be aware that on the other side of the imperial/colonial phobias potent de-colonial forces are at work, among Moslems and within Hispanics in the ...
