About this title

Synopsis:

Using region as a category of analysis, this pioneering collection explores the reciprocal relationship between Latinas and location. In highlighting the multiple ways in which Latinas grapple with their identity, the contributors significantly increase our understanding of how identity is created, negotiated, claimed, and remembered. This pathbreaking volume compares Latinas from a variety of backgrounds, moving the focus from Los Angeles, New York, and Santa Fe to Chicago, Tucson, and Philadelphia. Memories and Migrations embodies the constant negotiation and shaping of scholarship, which mirrors the fluidity of Latina migration, memory, and identity.

Contributors include Gabriela F. Arredondo, John R. Chávez, Marisela R. Chávez, Yolanda Chávez Leyva, María E. Montoya, Lydia R. Otero, Vicki L. Ruiz, Elizabeth Salas, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, and Carmen Teresa Whalen.

Vicki L. Ruiz is a professor of history and Chicano/Latino studies and chair of the department of history at the University of California, Irvine. She is the author of From Out of the Shadows: Mexican Women in Twentieth-Century America. John R. Chávez is a professor of history at Southern Methodist University and the author of Eastside Landmark: A History of the East Los Angeles Community Union.
