Book Description

April 4 2012 143311156X 978-1433111563 1
‘Mapping Latina/o Studies’ brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to discuss the dynamic field of Latina/o Studies. Drawing on media studies, communications, history, education, literature, anthropology, popular music, and sociology, this collection explores the limits and possibilities of the category of Latinidad. The volume includes scholars who support the continuity of nation-specific identities and areas of study such as Chicano and Dominican Studies, in conversation with scholars who not only work within Latina/o Studies as a pan-ethnic, pan-national category but also explore the inevitable transnationality of a category whose people and culture flow across national borders.
