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.
There is a paucity of information to help guide mental health practitioners explore the ways that racism influences a client?s well being (Harrell, 2000). The stress caused by racism has been documented to affect the psychological well being of minorities (Harrell, 2000, Clark, Anderson, Clark, & Williams, 1999). The majority of the research involving race related stress has focused almost exclusively on African Americans. Despite the growing Latino population in the United States, there is substantially less research examining their perceived discriminatory experiences (Araujo & Borrell, 2006). Although the elderly subgroup is a population that has been largely ignored in the research with Latinos, it has been established that they are at a high risk for multiple psychological and physical ailments (Tran, Fitzpatrick, Berg, & Wright, 1996, Black, Markides, & Miller, 1998, Canabal & Quiles, 1995, Gonzalez, Haan, & Hinton, 2001, Harris, Eastman, Cowie, Flegal, & Eberhardt, 1999). This work investigated factors that impact the relationship between race related stress and quality of life of first generation immigrant Latino elders.
Studies conducted on Latino immigrants and political participation primarily focus on large population groups such as Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Mexicans. However, this study centers on Central American Hondurans, also a group with substantial populations in U.S. cities. The theoretical idea central in examining this query is that New York City Honduran political participation is related to their ethnic identity, association with churches in their U.S. communities, the extent of financial ties, and political participation (experiences) in their country of origin. This study will also add to the understanding of differences evident in U.S. Latino political participation. Uncovering differences of this growing minority contributes to seeking ways to increase their overall political participation, thus enabling them to contribute to the effectiveness of America s democracy by affecting the input and outcome of public policy.
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 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.
