Sample text

Baez’s notion of “young Latino professional” appears to coincide with the very forms of Whitewashing and homogenization that Dávila critiques. This certainly does not stem from her lack of knowledge of Puerto Rican and Mexican specificity. Dr. Baez, a middle-aged Puerto Rican woman who was born on the island but raised in Chicago from the age of 4, had closely interacted with Mexicans in Chicago throughout her life. In fact, she is a mother to MexiRican children, that is, children of Puerto Rican and Mexican parentage.

33 that Chicago’s unique (im)migration, political-economic, and social histories structure ethnolinguistic transformations such as the emergence of Latina/o panethnicity. The chapter begins by analyzing the ways that Puerto Rican and Mexican NNHS students construct national identities by creating and engaging in symbolic practices that remap the boundaries between Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Chicago. I argue that Puerto Rico and Mexico are understood to exist in Chicago through processes of reterritorialization (Gupta & Ferguson, 1992).

One common result is the almost ubiquitous loss of languages other than English by the third generation.
