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.

Review:

"This anthology represents the rich variety of scholarship that has emerged in the field of Latina history."--Journal of American Ethnic History "By reframing immigration through the multiple perspectives gained from studying `regionalities,' the collection facilitates new understandings of diasporic subjectivities and their lived experiences."--Western Historical Quarterly "First rate. . . . Both general readers and scholars should read this excellent collection, which ... contributes to a more nuanced understanding of United States history."--Hispanic American Historical Review
