Abjection And The Cinematic Cholo: The Chicano Gang Stereotype In Sociohistoric Context, Richard Mora 2011 Occidental College

Abjection And The Cinematic Cholo: The Chicano Gang Stereotype In Sociohistoric Context, Richard Mora

Richard Mora

In this brief research note, the author uses a sociohistoric lens to examine selected films that have employed the cholo, or Chicano gang member, stereotype. He finds that the cholo is a prevalent archetype of Mexican and Mexican American youth. The author argues that the depiction of the cholo as a hypermasculine, abject personage threatening the social order converges with how actual Latino youth are constructed in sociopolitical and media discourses-as both marginalized young men and migrants unworthy of membership in U.S. society.

Developing Meaningful Data Services At The University Of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries [Poster], Rebecca C. Reznik-Zellen, Maxine Schmidt, Jessica Adamick, Mj Canavan, Steve Mcginty

Rebecca C. Reznik-Zellen

Environmental scanning exercises enable an institution to develop a clear understanding of complex issues before making high-impact process decisions or commitments. At the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the path to embracing the current data management trend includes several complementary, exploratory exercises designed to help the Libraries not only understand the nuances of the local research environment but also to evaluate practices at peer institutions that may serve as a model for engaging and supporting faculty. By crafting a vision that prioritizes the needs of the campus community while learning from external solutions, the University of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries are able ...


“The Economic Lives Of The Slums In Latin America: A First Approach” Work In Progress, 2011, Raimundo Undurraga 2011 Selected Works

“The Economic Lives Of The Slums In Latin America: A First Approach” Work In Progress, 2011, Raimundo Undurraga

Raimundo Undurraga

The high level of informality of slum dwellers puts them in a “black box”, where policy makers cannot access with certainty information about the effectiveness of their actions. This paper examines the economic lives of slum dwellers in Latin America. Using case studies of Chile, El Salvador, Mexico and Uruguay, we inspect the socioeconomic characteristics and opportunities of slum dwellers in comparison with the situations of the poor in each country. We found that while slum dwellers on average present poorer housing conditions than the poor, they are richer and have better job opportunities. However, the slum heterogeneity presented in ...

¿Es La Separación De Funciones Un Estándar Justiciable Para El Régimen De Sanciones Administrativas?, Sergio Verdugo sverdugor@udd.cl, José Francisco García 2011 Universidad del Desarrllo

¿Es La Separación De Funciones Un Estándar Justiciable Para El Régimen De Sanciones Administrativas?, Sergio Verdugo Sverdugor@Udd.Cl, José Francisco García

Sergio Verdugo R.

Los autores comentan la sentencia del Tribunal Constitucional chileno, que declara la inaplicabilidad de un precepto del Código Sanitario que le permite al Director del Instituto de Salud Pública solicitar al intendente respectivo la privación de libertad de infractores que no hayan pagado multas cursadas con anterioridad, frente a lo cual no existe un posible control judicial que impida la aplicación efectiva de la medida cárcel. Los autores argumentan que el caso es, en realidad, acerca de la separación de funciones, y que el fallo persigue un equilibrio entre el respeto a los derechos de los regulados y el adecuado ...

Reversing The Election Out Of The Preproduction Period Capitalization Rules, Neil E. Harl 2011 Iowa State University

Reversing The Election Out Of The Preproduction Period Capitalization Rules, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

As many will recall, for taxable years beginning after 1986, taxpayers were required to capitalize the direct costs of production and the “proper share” of the indirect costs (including taxes) which were assignable to the production of property.1 That enactment generated stiff resistance from the agricultural sector, particularly among livestock producers, with the result that legislation enacted in 19882 made the provisions inapplicable to “animals” produced by the taxpayer in a farming business for costs incurred after December 31, 1988.3 For animals not “produced by the taxpayer in a farming business,” the preproductive rules continued to apply ...
