9780742517035: Transnational Latina/o Communities: Politics, Processes, and Cultures (Latin American Perspectives in the Classroom)

This groundbreaking text challenges the traditional paradigm of Latina/o studies by focusing on transnational issues and examining the manner in which gender, race, and class emerge out of local and global processes. Divided into three parts, the volume first critiques current theoretical and methodological approaches within the discipline. It then explores alternate propositions concerning material culture and human identity by introducing different frames for analysis. Finally, it moves us beyond nation-based approaches of previous studies as well as attending to emergent rural and urban innovations at the local level. This work expands our understandings and links between Latino and Latin American studies and will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars from both fields.

Review:

[A] fascinating contribution to the study of the formation of Latina/o communities in the United States. (American Anthropologist)

The volume presents an excellent orientation to new directions and trends in theorizing the Latina/o experience in the U.S. (Ethnic And Racial Studies)

Transnational Latina/o Communities: Politics, Processes, and Cultures is one of those rare anthologies in which every single essay stands on its own merits as peered-review articles. Co-edited by Carlos Vélez-Ibáñez and Anna Sampaio, the anthology offers a collection of articles particularly tailored for classroom use in introductory Latina/o Studies courses. (Ana Y. Ramos-Zayas Journal Of American Ethnic History)

An exciting and timely work that broadens the ways that Chicano/Latino communities are traditionally studied. The essays are well-written and accessible to students. An important contribution to the field and to the classroom. (Enrique Ochoa)

[A] fascinating contribution to the study of the formation of Latina/o communities in the United States..... (American Anthropologist)
