Within contemporary anthropology, the tradition of the single site ethnography is being challenged as inadequate to the task of representing the complexity of modern social life. A multi-site ethnography examines the network of complex connections within a system of places and the implications for the formation of group identity through popular cultural practices. Low riding is a popular culture organized around the activities of fashioning and showing baroquely customized automobiles by men and women from 13 to 45 years of age and is considered to be a distinctly "Chicano" (Mexican American) form. Low riding originated largely in the 1960s in Los Angeles, a center of industry, mass media communication, and Mexican American culture in the United States. There low riding practices serve to remap the bounds of mobility to correspond to experienced limits and to express and facilitate preferred forms of sociality. In Houston, Texas, low riding became popular in the late seventies simultaneous with the oil industry boom and regional distribution of Low Rider Magazine. It served as a way for Mexican Americans dispersed throughout the city, many only recent residents, to create a community. In Espanola, New Mexico (also known as "Little L.A.")...

This essay offers a brief overview of my filmmaking work over the last 30 years, during which I have focused on the U.S.-Mexico border region, producing films principally for PBS, the public television system in the United States. Through collaboration with many other filmmakers, I’ve had the opportunity to examine many key moments in the transborder history of the region. These films were broadcast to a national audience in the US and have also been screened in numerous festivals in Latin America and around the world. My films have focused on themes and periods of significance to the transnational U.S.-Mexican community, including: the war between Mexico and the United States in the 19th century (The US-Mexican War: 1846-1848); the fight by Mexican American miners in the early 20th century to create a labor union in the Phelps Dodge mines of Arizona (Los Mineros); the journey north of generations of Mexican immigrants, represented by the trail which one family followed from Baja California to San Diego, California (The Trail North); the dramatic raid by Mexican General Francisco “Pancho” Villa on the small community of Columbus, New Mexico in 1916, and the American expedition sent to capture him (The Hunt for Pancho Villa); the fascinating story of Pedro J.

This article presents the Chicano family as a symbolic space where Chicano cultural and linguistic issues are confronted, allowing for the revision of the roots of traditional culture and offering new altematives. The article focuses on two of the early Chicano writers, Jose Antonio Villarreal and his novel Pocho (1959) and Luis Valdez with his play The Shrunken Head of Pancho Villa (1964). The former narrates the dilemma of choosing tradition, as represented by the Mexican rancher family model, and modernity, as represented by American individualism. The latter dramatizes the family as a political and cultural unit which can bridge the private and public spheres in terms of the creation of a Chicano identity. Both works unite the temporal and ideological space of the Mexican Revolution to the Chicano Movement. Although with different results, the images and symbols taken from the private family domain are used in these works as a platform to create a culture of resistance to the History and experience ofthe Chicano community and for the shaping of a cultural identity.

The largest Hispanic celebration in the U.S., el Día de los Muertos, has both Spanish and Indigenous American roots. Largely unknown in the US prior to the 1970s, it was adopted by Mexican American artists as an emblematic symbol of the Chicano Movement. It is now part of the educational curricula of many U.S. schools and universities and is one of the most popular annual exhibits in art galleries and museums. Receiving prominent media coverage because of its colorful rituals, the celebration in its new socio-political context honors the growing demographic of Latinos in the U.S. and encourages moral reflection on issues of political importance. Many Day of the Dead activities honor popular Latino icons (i.e. artist Frida Kahlo, labor union organizer César Chávez, salsa star Celia Cruz) and a significant number draw attention to sociopolitical causes of death affecting the Latino community (i.e. gang violence, war, labor exploitation). Through public altars, art installations, street processions and vigils commemorating the dead, participants contest the privatization of sadness and frustration experienced by sectors of U.S. society disproportionately affected by an unnecessary loss of life. At the same time, the celebration is a unique medium for teaching about Latino identities and histories. Based on ethnographic observation of more than 100 Day of the Dead events in the United States over a 10 year period...

One of the main characteristics of politics is its close connection with power whose positive effect is to work for the common good. However, there is also the risk of political power being used in a less benevolent way. On the one hand, concrete acts are what makes power visible and tangible, yet on the other hand written and oral speech acts will achieve the same end. Then again, words which are spoken or noted down on paper are only one way to get a message across, since everything that remains unsaid also has considerable effects. Missing or fragmentary information hints at the tendency of public institutions to overlook or neglect certain population groups thus putting the members of those groups at a disadvantage, impeding their participation within society. The subsequent analysis of contemporary Mexican-American prose will examine the interactions and effects of political communication in the USA by studying literary characters and their lives as well as the legislative framework and the arguments of individuals in key positions of society. Examining the literary representation of these interrelated aspects in Ana Castillo’s novel So Far From God will expose the connections between political acts and statements as well as the effects of the corresponding communication or lack thereof on the people concerned. The interdisciplinary approach of the analysis makes use of scientific knowledge regarding power...

Abstract en inglés.; This essay analyzes Tomás Riviera' s novel ". . . y no se lo tragó la tierra" as a landmark in Chicano literary history. The article explores the way in which Riviera sets out to chronicle the transition from a cultural past marked by a communal oral culture to a cultural present dominated by writing. The moment of transition from one world to the other is seen in the final paragraph of the novel, in which the young protagonist communicates by gestures with a young person he sees in the distance. In thus moving from voice to silence, the main character (and with him the novelist) poetically envisions his readership, as well as the process by which silent writing (somewhat paradoxically) manages to capture and transmit the words and the expression of Chicano farmworkers in the 1950s.

Representations of indigeneity abound in late-twentieth-century Chicano/a cultural productions, occupying genres as diverse as the political treatise, novel, poem, and news report. The work that follows traces the construction and ideological implications of indigenous Mexican culture, or 'Indian' signifiers in Chicano/a cultural production, a fundamental but often overlooked feature of Chicano/a subject formation. I bring Chicano/a indigenism into conversation with two historical and social phenomenon, Mexican indigenous migrants in the US and post-Revolutionary Mexican national discourse, to explore their influences and challenges to notions of authenticity and nationalism. "Mestizaje," a product of Mexican post-Revolutionary national discourse, subsumes the "Indian" within the Chicano/a and ultimately within the Chicano/a political imaginary. I argue that Mexican indigenous migrants in the U.S. constitute a new critical mass that contests mestizaje and Chicano/a as potential decolonial constructs. Such socio-political projects, I argue, forces us to rethink the uses of indigenism in the production of racialized Chicano/a political identities such as "la raza cosmica" and radical epistemological frameworks such as Anzaldua's "mestiza consciousness."

Essa dissertação consiste de uma leitura crítica do romance The House on Mango Street da autora Chicana Sandra Cisneros. O foco da minha leitura recai sobre Esperanza, a narradora do romance, e sua busca por um lar como representativo de sua necessidade de autoafirmação e desenvolvimento de sua identidade. Essa monografia analisa a questão identitária de um sujeito culturalmente híbrido e analisa ainda vários aspectos da narrativa, como a língua, o desejo que leva a tal narrativa e a questão de gênero. O uso das duas línguas, Espanhol e Inglês, é também marca dessa cultura híbrida. As representações femininas também são analisadas no romance. As figuras do imaginário mexicano influenciam e marcam o perfil das mulheres Mexicanas e Chicanas que aparecem na obra. O romance pode ser considerado como representativo de um discurso Chicano, no qual podemos acompanhar Esperanza em sua trajetória de crescimento em direção à vida adulta. O aporte teórico utilizado compreende autores que investigam questões identitárias, como Stuart Hall e Homi Bhabha, de gênero, como Cherríe Moraga e Gloria Anzaldúa e questões relativas aos mitos representativos do feminino no imaginário mexicano, através da análise de Octavio Paz.; This dissertation consists of a critical reading of the novel The House on Mango Street by Chicana author...

La migración al Norte, de la Sierra Gorda y otras áreas, se debe, sobre todo, a la caída de la agricultura y el cierre de las minas. La “topada”, que es el ritual dominante de la vida comunitaria y doméstica de la zona, registra las diferentes etapas de la migración: de la Sierra a la ciudad (San Luis Potosí o principalmente el Norte de la Ciudad de México y ciertas áreas del Estado de México) y de aquí a diversos estados de los Estados Unidos. El ritual se relaciona con una amplia tradición en la cultura hispánica (la payada, la controversia), y sus componentes literarios pueden rastrearse hasta los siglos XVI y XVII. La “topada” celebra la vida como un proceso liberador y se adecua a los procesos identitarios y de cohesión social. Al hacerlo, refuerza otras tendencias culturales, como la de algunos grupos chicanos que buscan un estilo transétnico y están conscientes de la necesidad de regresar a su origen mexicano o de afianzarlo mediante la música y la literatura. //// Abstract The decline of agriculture and the closing of mines are some of the reasons for the migration from the Sierra Gorda and its neighboring areas to the United States. The Topada —the dominant ritual to celebrate communal and domestic life in the zone— features the different stages of the migratory path: from the Sierra to the city (San Luis Potosi or mostly the north of Mexico City and certain areas of the Estado de Mexico)...

La narrativa de las escritoras chicanas como Sandra Cisneros puede considerarse posmoderna al mismo tiempo que feminista en la medida en que se trata de una “revisión” y desconstrucción de las representaciones culturales de las mujeres chicanas y mexicanas. Es también una literatura crítica que se ubica en una de las fronteras de la cultura occidental, en la frontera entre dos culturas hegemónicas, la estadounidense y la mexicana, cuyos discursos dominantes pone en cuestión. Este ensayo pone el énfasis en las nociones de frontera y de traducción, particularmente en el caso de estas escritoras cuya actitud crítica y feminista es un gesto de resistencia frente a los paradigmas culturales y sociales. Se trata de una literatura que es en sí misma una forma de traducción y de performance. //// The narrative of chicana women writers like Sandra Cisneros can be considered postmodern and feminist to the extent that it is both a “revision” and a deconstruction of the cultural representations of chicana and Mexican women. It is also a critical literature produced in one of the frontiers of Western culture, in the border of two hegemonic cultures, the American and the Mexican, questioning their dominant discourses. This essay emphasizes the notions of border and translation...

Ho testimonien els textos literaris, espistolars, administratius o historiogràfics estudiats i les declaracions processals del XIII al XVII, les quals reflecteixen, encara que parcialment, la llengua espontània o no formal que utilitzaven els declarants en un judici oral.

O artigo pretende problematizar algumas questões identitárias referentes à cultura chicana a partir da apropriação das imagens guadalupanas feitas por artistas/intelectuais chicanas. O discurso feminista chicano que se constrói sobre a imagem da Virgem de Guadalupe traz as marcas do processo transfronteiriço no qual se (des)localiza a experiência chicana, configurada por clivagens raciais, de classe, de gênero e de sexualidades. Instalando-se num lugar de fala que as coloca entre o poder patriarcal mexicano e a voz do feminismo norteamericano que não dá conta das questões raciais e de classe, a produção das new mestizas (como a autora Anzaldúa define a feminista chicana) freqüentemente se apropria da imagem da Virgem de Guadalupe, subvertendo seus sentidos, para lançar a força de seu brado político.; This article intends to rise a few identitary questions in relation to the chicana culture. The analysis is based on the appropriation of the images of Guadalupe made by chicano artists and intellectuals. The chicano feminist speech, which is built over the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe shows the stains of the process between borders in which is (un) located the chicano experience. It is configured by racial, class...

This essay juxtaposes the proliferation of discourse on and about the Hispanic in the wake of the 2000 U.S. Census with performative representations of American cultural identity by Mexican-Chicano Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Native Canadian Monique Mojíca. In opposition to the new multiracialism of the 2000 U.S. Census, both anti-racist critical theorists of whiteness and conservative anti-Hispanic analysts decry the loss of a binary racial paradigm that clearly defines Euro-American culture against its non-English-speaking others. These theorists mistakenly blame multiracialism—and the Hispanics who define themselves in this distinct register—as a problematic threat to a one-drop racial paradigm, based on notions of racial purity. By contrast, multilingual, trans-American representations in Gómez-Peña and Mojíca look beyond the false dilemma of mixed and fixed racial paradigms in order to criticize the assimilationist legacies of European coloniality. They comparatively reconstruct the traumatic history of mestizaje in order to envision alternative representations and distinct futures for the Americas.; Este artigo justapõe a proliferação do discurso sobre hispânicos no período que segue o pós-censo 2000 dos EUA com as representações performáticas de identidade cultural americana realizadas pelo mexicano-chicano Guillermos Gómez-Peña e pela indígena-Canadense Monique Mojíca. Opondo-se ao novo multiracialismo do Censo 2000 estadunidense...
