Description

The Routledge Handbook of Chicana/o Studies is a unique interdisciplinary resource for students, libraries, and researchers interested in the largest and most rapidly growing racial-ethnic community in the United States and elsewhere which can either be identified as Chicano, Latino, Hispanic, or Mexican-American. Structured around seven comprehensive themes, the volume is for students of American studies, the Social Sciences, and the Humanities. The volume is organized around seven critical domains in Chicana/o Studies:




Chicana/o History and Social Movements
Borderlands, Global Migrations, Employment, and Citizenship
Cultural Production in Global and Local Settings
Chicana/o Identities
Schooling, Language, and Literacy
Violence, Resistance, and Empowerment
International Perspectives





The Handbook will stress the importance of the historical origins of the Chicana/o Studies field. Starting from myth of origins, Aztlan, alleged cradle of the Chicana/o people lately substantiated by the findings of archaeology and anthropology, over Spanish/Indigenous relations until the present time. Essays will explore cultural and linguistic hybridism and showcase artistic practices (visual arts, music, and dance) or through popular (folklore) or high culture achievements (museums, installations) highlighting the growth of a critical perspective grounded on key theoretical formulations including borderlands theories, intersectionalities, critical race theory, and cultural analysis.
