Sample text

Even the few Latina/o students who had never visited Mexico or Puerto Rico still identified strongly as Mexican or Puerto Rican. The following section demonstrates the ways that being born in Chicago can be reimagined as a way of being born in Puerto Rico or Mexico. ¿DE QUÉ PARTE? ): DIASPORIC DETERRITORIALIZATION AND RETERRITORIALIZATION While most NNHS students were born and raised in Chicago, many of them had either lived in Puerto Rico or Mexico at some point or visited several times throughout their lives.

Baez’s notion of “young Latino professional” invokes broader ideas about Latina/o identities in Chicago, the US city with the third-largest population overall and the fifth-largest Latina/o population (Bureau of the Census, 2011). 2). These Chicago-based Latina/o emblems interact dynamically with the construction of Latina/o identities across local, national, and international scales. Such constructions often involve exoticizing stereotypes that position Latinas/os as a unified consumer market regardless of ethnic difference, as in Puerto Rican, Mexican, and so on.

Overall, more negative stereotypes were cited about PRs than about MXs, including that they were “ghetto”, stubborn, loud, cheap or vulgar, and partiers.

But the fact is my participants did not appear to face any “nationalist tensions”.
