Beyond machismo : intersectional Latino masculinities by Aída Hurtado( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long considered a pervasive value of Latino cultures both south and north of the US border, machismo--a hypermasculinity that obliterates any other possible influences on men's attitudes and behavior--is still used to define Latino men and boys in the larger social narrative. Yet a closer look reveals young, educated Latino men who are going beyond machismo to a deeper understanding of women's experiences and a commitment to ending gender oppression. This new Latino manhood is the subject of Beyond Machismo. Applying and expanding the concept of intersectionality developed by Chicana feminists, Aída Hurtado and Mrinal Sinha explain how the influences of race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender shape Latinos' views of manhood, masculinity, and gender issues in Latino communities and their acceptance or rejection of feminism. In particular, the authors show how encountering Chicana feminist writings in college, as well as witnessing the horrors of sexist oppression in the United States and Latin America, propels young Latino men to a feminist consciousness. By focusing on young, high-achieving Latinos, Beyond Machismo elucidates this social group's internal diversity, thereby providing a more nuanced understanding of the processes by which Latino men can overcome structural obstacles, form coalitions across lines of difference, and contribute to movements for social justice"--Publisher's description
The color of privilege : three blasphemies on race and feminism by Aída Hurtado( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking and important book explores how women of different ethnic/racial groups conceive of feminism. Arguing against the normative feminist model based on white women's experience, Aida Hurtado advances a theory of relational privilege to explain that the different responses to feminism are not so much the result of personality or cultural differences between white women and women of color, but of their differing relationship to white men. Written from an interdisciplinary, multicultural standpoint that draws from psychology, economics, political science, and feminist theory, Hurtado's analysis is enriched by selections from poems by Sandra Cisneros, Gloria Anzaldua, Lorna Dee Cervantes, and Elba Sanchez, and from plays by El Teatro Campesino, the United Farm Workers theater group
Borderlands : the new mestiza = La frontera by Gloria Anzaldúa( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rooted in Gloria Anzaldúa's experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenged, and continue to challenge, how we think about identity. Borderlands / La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a "border" is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new introduction by scholars Norma Cantu (University of Texas at San Antonio) and Aida Hurtado (University of California at Santa Cruz) as well as a revised critical bibliography."--Back cover

Invisible no more : understanding the disenfranchisement of Latino men and boys by Edward Fergus( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Latino men and boys in the United States are confronted with a wide variety of hardships that are not easily explained or understood. They are populating prisons, dropping out of high school, and are becoming overrepresented in the service industry at alarming degrees. Young Latino men, especially, have among the lowest wages earned in the country, a rapidly growing rate of HIV/AIDS, and one of the highest mortality rates due to homicide. Although there has been growing interest in the status of men in American society, there is a glaring lack of research and scholarly work available on Latino men and boys. This groundbreaking interdisciplinary volume, edited by renowned scholars Pedro Noguera, Aída Hurtado and Edward Fergus addresses the dearth of scholarship and information about Latino men and boys to further our understanding of the unique challenges and obstacles that they confront during this historical moment. The contributors represent a cross section of disciplines from health, criminal justice, education, literature, psychology, economics, labor, sociology and more. By drawing attention to the sweeping issues facing this segment of the population, this volume offers research and policy a set of principles and overarching guidelines for decreasing the invisibility and thus the disenfranchisement of Latino men and boys."--

MeXicana fashions : politics, self-adornment, and identity construction( Book )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collecting the perspectives of scholars who reflect on their own relationships to particular garments, analyze the politics of dress, and examine the role of consumerism and entrepreneurialism in the production of creating and selling a style, meXicana Fashions examines and searches for meaning in these visible, performative aspects of identity. Focusing primarily on Chicanas but also considering trends connected to other Latin American communities, the authors highlight specific constituencies that are defined by region (“Tejana style,” “L.A. style”), age group (“homie,” “chola”), and social class (marked by haute couture labels such as Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta). The essays acknowledge the complex layers of these styles, which are not mutually exclusive but instead reflect a range of intersections in occupation, origin, personality, sexuality, and fads. Other elements include urban indigenous fashion shows, the shifting quinceañera market, “walking altars” on the Days of the Dead, plus-size clothing, huipiles in the workplace, and dressing in drag. Together, these chapters illuminate the full array of messages woven into a vibrant social fabric." --

Joblessness among Hispanic youth, 1973-1981 : literature review and statement of problem by Philip Garcia( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Key indicators of labor market behavior among Hispanic teenagers from 1973 to 1981 and comparisons with White and Black youth are reported in this review. The major observations are: (1) Overall employment rates for Hispanic youth are consistently 12 percentage points less than for White youths, and their unemployment rate is usually six points higher. Thus, unlike Black-White inequalities, the observed Hispanic-White differences did not widen during the study period. (2) Youth rates are quite sensitive to changes in the economy. Therefore, Hispanic-White youth differences expand and contract with the peak-to-trough cycles of the economy; and the two recession periods seem to have precluded any sustained improvement in the absolute level of Hispanic youth employment. (3) The problem of underemployment of Hispanic youth, as in the case of Blacks, is very much a problem of out-of-the-labor-force teenagers. Consequently, unemployment rates alone often understate the breadth of their employment problems. (4) Partly because of a positive growth rate and stable labor force participation rates, the proportion of Hispanic youth in the total civilian work force has remained constant. (5) Hispanic workers who also attend high school have much greater employment problems than comparable White workers; Hispanic dropouts fare much better in the labor market than one might expect. (6) Hispanic joblessness appears more problematic for Puerto Rican and for female teens. (Author/CMG)

Domination and intergroup relations : the impact of Chicano linguistic attitudes by Aída Hurtado( )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political consciousness measures also had a direct effect on attitudes toward bilingualism. Respondents who perceived influential groups (businessmen, policemen, etc.) as having too much power in society, and/or perceive a great amount of discrimination directed at people of Mexican descent, have positive attitudes towards bilingualism. In summary, the investigation results show that ethnic identification as well as political consciousness have an impact on positive attitudes towards bilingualism
