Mediating Chicana/o Culture

Book Description: 

Mediating Chicana/o Culture: Multicultural American Vernacular (Cambridge Scholars, 2006, rev 2/e 2008) covers an unconventional array of topics—from handkerchiefs, votives, and graffiti to food, fútbol, and the Internet—alongside literature, cinema, photography. Its cross-disciplinary approach critically interrogates underlying tensions between personal expressions and public demonstrations in negotiations toward Chicana/o identity.
