Latino Identity and Political Attitudes
109,54 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores the forces that shape Latino political preferences, arguing that social identities are at the center of Latino partisanship. Despite hopes of the Republican Party for bringing in Latinos through religious and moral issues, Latinos in America consistently side with the Democratic Party. Two possible explanations based on social identity emerge as theories of Latino partisanship. The first possibility is that Latinos behave as a single-issue public driven politically by the issue of immigration. A thorough exploration of this possibility in part two of the book finds very little evidence to justify treating Latinos as a single-issue public. The second explanation, presented in part three, relies more heavily on the concept of social identities. Latino pan-ethnic identity emerges as one of multiple identities available to Latinos in America. These multiple, diverse, and overlapping identities are the force behind Latino partisanship. Latino ethnic identity trumps the impact of religious identities in making Latinos more Democratic.

Latino/a Families Be Like...
63,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work investigates how Latino/a family relations and immigrant Latino/a identities are constructed in selected examples of U.S. popular culture. The primary goal is to highlight how Latino/a identities are represented in satirical audiovisual material by the YouTubers LeJuan James and Jenny Lorenzo, as well as in the bilingual TV sitcom "Qué pasa, U.S.A.?. The most relevant definitions regarding immigrant Latino/a identities in the U.S. and their respective media representation are clarified in the theoretical part of the work. The connection between language and identity, Latino/a family relations and parenting, as well as different degrees of immigrant assimilation within intergenerational Latino/a families are going to be focused on. Consequently, the analysis aims to underline the most salient aspects of Latino/a identities that enable this particular media construction, namely language use, parenting and intergenerational family relations, traditions and values, and attitudes and behavior. By examining said themes in the humorous media sources, popular stereotypes that are used to portray Latinos/as in popular culture are stressed and dismantled.

The ESL Kids Are Over There

Addressing language and social issues, particularly in schools which enroll students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds can be challenging for educators. It can be equally challenging for immigrant students who are trying to be both academically successful and fit in socially at school. This book presents an ethnographic study conducted at a California high school on students perspectives of the lack of social interactions between immigrant Latino and White students. The study identifies factors contributing to boundaries between the two groups, and explores to what extent students attitudes and behaviors were influenced by societal ideologies. The data show that hearing Latino students speak Spanish provoked a range of negative reactions from White students. Interestingly, both White and Latino students equated speaking English with being American, however White students further concluded that Latino students who spoke Spanish were not trying to be American. This study should help educators understand the significance of the social aspects of schooling, and its impact on immigrant students success both in and beyond high school.

This book discusses the issues surrounding race, ethnicity, and immigrant status in U.S. policing, with a special focus on immigrant groups' perceptions of the police and factors that shape their attitudes toward the police.

Discussion of their perceptions of and experience with the police revolves around several central themes, including theoretical frameworks, historical developments, contemporary perceptions, and emerging challenges. This book appeals to those interested in or researching policing, race relations, and immigration in society, and to domestic and foreign government officials who carry law enforcement responsibilities and deal with citizens and immigrants in particular.
