about this item

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 six comprehensive themes the volume is for students of American studies, the Social Sciences and the Humanities, beyond the main audience of graduate Chicana/o Studies. The volume is organized around six 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.

The Handbook will stress the importance of the historical origins of the Chicana/o Studies field. Starting from myth of origins, Aztlán, alleged cradle of the Chicano 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.
