Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Didactics - English - Applied Geography, grade: 2,0, Karlsruhe University of Education, language: English, abstract: The 1960's and 1970's were critical years for the Latino community across the United States. Spanish-speaking people from the east to the west coast were engaged in groundbreaking civil-rights efforts during these decades. These efforts, which were built on earlier struggles of Latino and Latina activists since the end of the Mexican-American war in 1848 (cf. Escobar 1993), established a new factor in U.S. society and race relations. Hard work was put in to achieve those goals. The most challenging region of Latino activism during this era was southern California. In Los Angeles, Mexican-Americans had to face severe discrimination, segregation and racism. Therefore, some of the most important events in the Chicano community occurred in Los Angeles; the Chicano Blowouts, the Chicano Moratorium and the Chicana women rights movement, also known as the Chicana Feminist Movement. All three fuelled a national movement, that would forever change the face of Latino identity and politics in America (cf. Trevino 2001). Having Mexican ancestry during that time was not considered as something to be proud of, people with Mexican heritage were not treated as equals by the white population in the United States, therefore it was just a question of time until some sort of movement would break out. This paper will focus on Chicana women and Chicana feminism, with a closer look at how the Chicano Movement dealt with Mexican-American women. Another point of particular interest is if and how Chicanas influenced the Chicano Movement and how they dealt with each other and finally the investigation of the role of Chicana women within the Chicano/Chicana Movement, their traditional role and the later change to the modern role, within the Chicano community and within American society. To be able to answer these questions, one at first has to take a closer look at the Chicano Movement itself. The first chapter introduces the Chicano Movement in general, explains terms and definitions, the second chapter focuses on major events during the movement, the third chapter deals with the leaders of the movement and the last chapter with Chicana women, feminism, their role during the Chicano Movement and their position within society back then and nowadays. The paper ends with a functional conclusion.

Adverse Events (eBook, ePUB)
111,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Explores the social inequality of clinical drug testing and its effects on scientific resultsImagine that you volunteer for the clinical trial of an experimental drug. The only direct benefit of participating is that you will receive up to $5,175. You must spend twenty nights literally locked in a research facility. You will be told what to eat, when to eat, and when to sleep. You will share a bedroom with several strangers. Who are you, and why would you choose to take part in this kind of study? This book explores the hidden world of pharmaceutical testing on healthy volunteers. Drawing on two years of fieldwork in clinics across the country and 268 interviews with participants and staff, it illustrates how decisions to take part in such studies are often influenced by poverty and lack of employment opportunities. It shows that healthy participants are typically recruited from African American and Latino/a communities, and that they are often serial participants, who obtain a significant portion of their income from these trials. This book reveals not only how social inequality fundamentally shapes these drug trials, but it also depicts the important validity concerns inherent in this mode of testing new pharmaceuticals. These highly controlled studies bear little resemblance to real-world conditions, and everyone involved is incentivized to game the system, ultimately making new drugs appear safer than they really are. Adverse Events provides an unprecedented view of the intersection of racial inequalities with pharmaceutical testing, signaling the dangers of this research enterprise to both social justice and public health.

Escaping Culture: Finding Your Place in the Wor...
9,95 € *

Born to a Mexican/Yaqui Indian mother, and Mexican/Anglo father, the author shares life-altering events and the people that shaped his mixed-race “American” experience. For as long as he can remember, identity by choice or force has wrought conflict and contradictions. Who is he? What is he? Where did he come from? Where does he belong? Where is he going? His surname implies he’s white, but his brown skin begs to differ. Is he Mexican? His mother’s family tree most certainly is, but his Father’s Celtic and Iberian branch bears his Anglo surname. Is he more culturally white European than ethnically Latino? Is he a Native American, rooted in his beloved Yaqui abuela? To which ethnic tribe does he belong? The author asks listeners to think of this book as explanatory theater; as a three-act play providing racial and cultural context, commentary, and value to the social paradigms we all share, but often fail to recognize in ourselves and one another. His essays testify, an authentic telling of naivety, consequence, rebellion, and evolutionary awareness. And of life discovered, marinated in an introspective stew of love, fear, indulgence, compassion, humility, and redemption. He intends to affirm and provoke, and open our ears to a world seen through an independent and differently colored lens. Consider his observations a handshake between friends. Let your guard down. Relax in a comfortable chair, have a glass of wine, and listen. He won’t bite. Well, maybe a little. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ryan Whiting.

A book for this moment: Both an assessment of our current political leadership and a vision of those who can bring substantive change.Who are the new progressive leaders emerging to lead the post-Trump return to democracy in America? National political correspondent and award-winning author D.D. Guttenplan's The Next Republic is an extraordinarily intense and wide-ranging account of the recent fall and incipient rise of democracy in America.The Next Republic profiles nine successful activists who are changing the course of American history right now:New labor activist and author Jane McAleveyRacial justice campaigner (and mayor of Jackson, Mississippi) Chokwe Antar Lumumba Environmental activist (and newly elected chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party) Jane KleebChicago’s first openly gay Latino public official Carlos Ramirez-Rosa#ALLOFUS co-founder Waleed ShahidYoung architects of Bernie Sanders amazing rise, digerati Corbin Trent and Zack Exley, founders of Brand New CongressAuthor and anti-corruption crusader Zephyr TeachoutAdditionally, the introduction to The Next Republic ties in the election and first year of the Trump presidency to the current rise of populism of the left, and there are three historical chapters that describe key moments in American history that shed light on current events: the Whiskey Rebellion, the Lincoln Republic, and the Roosevelt Republic. Guttenplan understands the magnitude of the problem of democracy, and at the same time the great possibilities for its resurgence. Like a cross between George Packer's The Unwinding and John F. Kennedy's Profiles in Courage, The Next Republic is both unyielding and deeply hopeful, the first audiobook to come out of the Trump ascendency that stakes a claim for seeing beyond it. 1.

Teatro Puerto Rico
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Teatro Puerto Rico was to the Latino community in the South Bronx what the Apollo Theater was to the African American community in the Harlem section of Manhattan. During its 1940s to 1950s "golden era", it was the hub of "la farándula", a vaudeville-style package of Spanish-language events, and attracted entertainers from all over Latin America. In the late 1960s, the neighborhood where the theater was located was in decline and the theater closed its doors until 1994, when a real estate developer invested over a million dollars in renovations. After two years in operation, a political scandal involving misappropriated public funds forced the permanent closure of the theater as such. The building which the theater once occupied, however, is now being used as a place of religious worship.
