Constituting Central American-Americans : Transnational Identities and the Politics of Dislocation Hardback
Part of the Latinidad: Transnational Cultures in the United States series
Central Americans are the third largest and fastest growing Latino population in the United States. And yet, despite their demographic presence, there has been little scholarship focused on this group.
Constituting Central American-Americans is an exploration of the historical and disciplinary conditions that have structured U.S.
Central American identity and of the ways in which this identity challenges how we frame current discussions of Latina/o, American ethnic, and diasporic identities.
By focusing on the formation of Central American identity in the U.S., Maritza E.
Cardenas challenges us to think about Central America and its diaspora in relation to other U.S. ethno-racial identities.
