Justice and Space Matter in a Strong, Unified Latino Community provides a detailed analysis of colonias along the Mexico-United States border, examining the intersection of culture, education, language, literacy, race, religion, and social class in Latino immigrant communities. The researchers investigated Corazón , a colonia in South Texas, as a case study of these unincorporated border settlements, consisting of mostly Mexican heritage residents and lacking many basic living necessities. Highlighting over ten years of research findings, the authors consider structural inequalities alongside the unique strengths of Corazón . Their acute observations dispel myths about such high-poverty communities and demonstrate how residents overcome the odds through activism, faith, and ganas . In presenting a portrait of the Corazón colonia, the authors offer a deeper level of understanding of one Latino community to inspire the development of a more equitable, compassionate world. This book will be invaluable to students and scholars of all fields who work with culturally diverse people in poverty, and will be ideal for courses in ethnic studies, multicultural studies, ethnographic methods, and socio-cultural applications for education.
Hispanic and Latino Americans are Americans of origins in Hispanic countries of Latin America or in Spain, except in the state of New York, where only people of Latin American origin are included. The group encompasses distinct sub groups by national origin and race, with ancestries from all continents represented. Hispanics and Latinos constitute 15.1% of the total United States population, or 45.4 million people, forming the second largest ethnic group (which includes Afro-Latin American Latino's of African descent), after non Hispanic White Americans (which is also composed of dozens of sub groups). Again, Hispanic and Latino Americans are the largest ethnic minority in the United States, African Americans, in turn, are the largest racial minority, after White Americans in general (non Hispanic and Hispanic).
This book documents the barriers to success encountered by U.S. Latino films over the past three decades, as their proponents sought to secure distribution deals and prove the films' worth as commodities. Over time, more studio and studio specialty divisions have acquired and circulated them, but many film distributors still do not understand the nuances of the U.S. Latino market and how to promote these films. The book includes interviews with marketers, publicists, and producers, and secondary research material from trade publications, newspaper articles, and websites, centering on marketing strategies, release dates, and box office figures. One of the first academic works to analyze the concurrent social and industrial factors within the U.S. Latino community and the larger Hollywood marketplace, this book examines and illuminates the history of U.S. Latino films.
The subordination, suppression, and silencing of bilingual students' voices and their communities by their educational system came under scrutiny at the end of the twentieth century. This book provides a forum for students' voices by examining some of the factors that promote the silencing of voice in Latino/a high school students thus submersing them in the culture of silence. Its significance rests on the ability to draw out, explore, and document how Latino/a students perceive their cultural and linguistic reality, the presentation of curricular and methodological approaches and alternatives to promote the emergence and legitimatization of students' voices, and its insight into and revelation of the ways shared teacher/student experiences, languages, and cultures can shape and impact both classroom relations and the emergence of voice.
They work at some of America's most hazardous jobs, have few protections, and receive some of the lowest wages. Latino Farmworkers in the Eastern United States describes this understudied and underserved population. Taking a social justice stance, this volume examines the health and living conditions of workers in agriculture, while advocating for equality. Contributors cover all major areas of illness and injury (including occupational, environmental, infections, and pesticides), while also focusing on systemic social conditions, from lax industry regulations to lack of basic services-problems that are exacerbated by workers' status as recent immigrants. Mental health burdens from the effects of discrimination to substance use, as well as the cumulative impact of workers' separation from families are discussed for a comprehensive, meticulously documented resource.Written to serve both the seasoned professional and the newcomer, Latino Farmworkers in the Eastern United States is a bedrock source of information for those providing health and social services in the community, for researchers investigating health and safety disparities, and for advocates and policymakers working to correct them.
Latino/a Youth Identity and Adaptation is a qualitative study examining the lives and personal stories of 22 college freshmen of Mexican descent and how they acculturate in their first year at a university. Challenges including institutional racism, pressure to assimilate, and ignorance of Latino/a values are current barriers to the academic success and leadership development of students of Mexican descent in higher education, particularly at predominantly white campuses.
Evangelina Brignoni explores the notion that Latinosmostly express their thoughts and emotions, constructtheir identities, and transmit inter-generationallytheir rich heritage through the oral domain oflanguage. "Authors in a Latino Family:Communication,Transformation, and the Exception to the Rule"focuses on the exception to the above-mentionedpopular view: that Latinos primarily communicate inthe oral realm. The author explores the writings ofthree members in her own family by applying amulti-method approach - a microstoria analysis,interviews through videography, and analysis ofwriting samples. This multi-generational story, whilecontextualized historically and politically, aims tochallenge the popular view of oral dominance inLatino culture. Furthermore, it elucidates thedynamics of written communication and language choicepreference in the very particular historical andcultural context of Puerto Rico and Puerto Ricanmigration to the United States. Although this book isbased on one Latino family''s history, there areimplications for classroom teachers who areinterested in validating the stories students bringto the school setting.

Von Mexiko bis Feuerland brodelt die Kreativität. Vor dem Hintergrund prosperierender Wirtschaftsmärkte und eines damit wachsenden Bedarfs an lokalen Projekten hat eine aufstrebende Generation lateinamerikanischer Designer und Künstler in den letzten Jahren die eigene visuelle Sprache vorangetrieben und verfeinert. latino-grafico präsentiert eine farbenprächtige Auswahl von Grafikdesign, Illustration und Typografie, die einen umfassenden Einblick in den frischen "Latino Look" von heute ermöglicht.Trotz lokaler Nuancen spiegeln die hier versammelten Talente - ob kritisch beäugt oder glorifiziert - eine Kultur wider, die von einer in jedem Sinne durchmischten Gesellschaft beeinflusst wird. Von der Naivität der Kunst afrikanischer Herkunft über christliche Symbolik bis zu importiertem, nordamerikanischen Kulturgut erkundet latino-grafico die verschiedenen Formen und Quellen, die diese bunte, oft chaotische Gestaltung prägen und diese zu einer der weltweit dynamischsten machen. Die beigefügte DVD mit Bewegtbildern sowie ein Vorwort vom langjährigen MTV-Kreativdirektor und gebürtigen Chilenen Christian Jofre machen das Buch zum umfassenden Kompendium dieser Szene.latino-grafico wurde vom ehemaligen Hort Designer und TwoPoints.Net-Gründer Martin Lorenz mit seiner Frau, der Gestalterin Lupi Asensio, zusammengestellt. Seit 2007 beobachten sie von Barcelona aus die gestalterischen Entwicklungen des lateinamerikanischen Kulturraums.
Latino students face many challenges on higher education campuses. These challenges require faculty and staff to respond in direct and meaningful ways. Often families have different backgrounds, backgrounds that warrant serious research. Understanding the student as a whole person means understating their families and where they came from. Sometimes this means looking for and listening to their voice. College administrators need to understand the motivational components of incoming Latino students to serve them well. In this transformative autoethonographic study, I focused on understanding stories told by one first-generation, immigrant Latino family s journey through higher education, and their challenges and successes attaining a degree in predominantly White institutions.I interviewed my parents, three sisters, and five brothers, I collected a plethora of data to co-construct meaning of my family experiences. I discovered five salient themes through analysis of the data: resilience, transformative learning, role models, no parent support, and acculturation. Implications for practice in the area of first generation, immigrants, Latino students, and gender inequality were discuss
