Description - Memories and Migrations by Vicki L. Ruiz
Using region as a category of analysis, this pioneering collection explores the reciprocal relationship between Latinas and location. 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. Ch\u00e1vez, Marisela R. Ch\u00e1vez, Yolanda Ch\u00e1vez Leyva, Mar\u00eda E. Montoya, Lydia R. Otero, Vicki L. Ruiz, Elizabeth Salas, Virginia S\u00e1nchez Korrol, and Carmen Teresa Whalen.
