Patricia Zavella : Professor of Latin American and Latino Studies, UC Santa Cruz by Patricia Zavella( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patricia Zavella was born in Tampa, Florida in 1949, the oldest of twelve children in a working-class family and often cared for her siblings. Her mother and father were both born in the United States and the primary language spoken in her family was English. She spoke English to her maternal grandmother who was born in the U.S. Her father was in the air force and they moved frequently when she was a child. Zavella was often one of very few Mexican-American children in the schools she attended. Teachers were often "surprised" at Zavella's stellar performance in the classroom. When she was ten years old, the family settled in Ontario in Southern California. It was here that there were more Mexican-Americans in her classrooms; this prompted her critical thinking about race relations and the Spanish language. In 1968, Zavella went to Chaffey Community College, in Alta Loma near her family's home. There she heard both Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez speak and became involved with the Chicano/a movement, developing into a student activist supporting some of the first classes in Mexican-American studies. Her recollections of these early days of the movement are a vital part of this oral history. Zavella participated in the Chicano Moratorium in August 1970, a demonstration of about 25,000 activists who protested in East Los Angeles against the Vietnam War. She joined MEChA [Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán] and began to claim an identity as a Chicana. Zavella went on to complete her BA in anthropology at Pitzer College (one of the Claremont Colleges) and then attended graduate school at UC Berkeley, where she earned her PhD in anthropology in 1982. As a graduate student, she continued to be deeply involved in and inspired by the Chicano/a movement. Her dissertation Women's Work in Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley developed into her first book. Through Zavalla's reflection we learn of the influence social movements had on her identity fo

Perspectives on Las Américas : a reader in culture, history, and representation by Matthew C Gutmann( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent years, with the transformation of political economies and the influence of new theoretical frameworks, especially in cultural studies, older approaches to area studies have become increasingly inadequate. This landmark volume charts new territory by demonstrating the limits of neatly demarcating the regions of 'Latin America' and the 'United States'. Perspectives on Las Americas: A Reader in Culture, History, and Representation presents key readings that collectively examine the historical, cultural, economic, and political integration of Latina/os across the Americas. It is the editors' hope that this thoughtful and innovative collection will challenge the barriers between Latina/o Studies and Latin American/Caribbean Studies as approached by anthropologists, historians, and other scholars. Perspectives on Las Americas provides a core text in a variety of settings and will offer instructors, students, and interested readers both the theoretical tools and case studies necessary to rethink transnational realities and identities
