In highlighting the multiple ways in which Latinas grapple with their identity, the contributors significantly increase our understanding of how identity is created, negotiated, claimed, and remembered. This pathbreaking volume compares Latinas from a variety of backgrounds, moving the focus from Los Angeles, New York, and Santa Fe to Chicago, Tucson, and Philadelphia. Memories and Migrations embodies the constant negotiation and shaping of scholarship, which mirrors the fluidity of Latina migration, memory, and identity.Contributors include Gabriela F. Arredondo, John R. Chávez, Marisela R. Chávez, Yolanda Chávez Leyva, María E. Montoya, Lydia R. Otero, Vicki L. Ruiz, Elizabeth Salas, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, and Carmen Teresa Whalen.
