Synopsis: Looking beyond the satin gowns, opera-length gloves, and sparkling tiaras that signify Filipino debutantes and Mexican quinceaeras, Evelyn Ibatan Rodriguez examines the meaning of these coming-of-age rituals for immigrant American families. "Celebrating Debutantes and Quinceaeras" draws parallels between these communal ceremonies, as they each share a commonality in Spanish heritage and Catholicism and include a highly ritualized party. Rodriguez analyzes these rites and festivities to explain what they reveal about the individuals, families, and communities who organize and participate in them.a
Drawing on over fifty in-depth interviews with members of these fast-growing American Asian and Latino populations, Rodriguez shows how these communal celebrations of daughters have been adapted by immigrant families to assert their cultural pride and affirm their American belonging. "Celebrating Debutantes and Quinceaeras" provides an intimate and compelling portrait of the various ways immigrants and their children are purposefully, strategically, and creatively employing Filipino American debutantes and Mexican American quinceaeras to simultaneously challenge and assimilate into U.S. culture and forge new understandings of what it means to be Mexican, Filipino, and American.
