Transforming Borders: Chicana/o Popular Culture and Pedagogy situates Chicana feminists' re-imagining of La Llorona, the Virgin of Guadalupe, and Malintzin/Malinche as sources of border/transformative pedagogies. In doing so, C. Alejandra Elenes contributes to the scholarship on transformative pedagogies by adding the voices of Chicana feminist pedagogies, epistemologies, and ontologies. Linking the relationship between cultural practices, knowledge, and teaching in everyday life, Elenes develops h er conceptualization of border/transformative pedagogies.

This book chronicles a 10-year journey to develop and sustain Adelante, a university-school-community partnership designed specifically to address public education’s failure to meet the needs of students of color, particularly Chicana/o students. The authors examine the persistent barriers, mistakes, challenges, and successes that emerged in their community-based partnership with elementary school students, college students, teachers, parents, and educational leaders. Intertwining critical race theories with Chicana feminist theories, they propose a “critical race feminista praxis” and provide real-world examples of what this praxis can look like in the context of a racialized, gendered, and colonial landscape. The book offers practical advice and theoretical insight to those interested in disrupting pervasive inequities that shape the (mis)education of marginalized students. Book Features: Fills a void about how to engage in activist scholarship by describing concrete strategies and practices employed by the authors. Offers theoretical contributions through the braiding together of critical race and Chicana feminist theories. Proposes a partnership model for working with communities of color that promotes pathways to higher education. “Theoretically cutting-edge and with practical on-the-ground application, Transforming Educational Pathways is a brilliant example of how university–school–community collaborations can be reshaped into transformative praxis in the education of Chicanx, Latinx students. The balanced combination of community-engaged work and scholar-activist research in this groundbreaking book powerfully move us further in the spiritual journey of reimagining and transforming the inequities of educational institutions for Chicanx, Latinx students and their families and communities.” —Luis Urrieta, professor, The University of Texas at Austin “Delgado Bernal and Aleman start and end with the transformative idea that all students should be expected to attend college from their earliest experiences in public education—kindergarten. By challenging the deficit notions surrounding Chicana/o students and their communities, the authors provide the most compelling asset-based and theoretically grounded university–community partnership program I’ve seen in the K–8 sector.” —Daniel G. Solorzano, professor, University of California, Los Angeles “Transforming Educational Pathways for Chicana/o Students is a compelling and intimate account of the development of Adelante, an innovative university–school partnership. It is also an inspiring story of the impact of culturally affirming and anticolonial education on Latina/o children and their teachers, university student mentors, and parents. The process of changing deficit-based school culture is a difficult one, as the book shows. Yet, drawing on Gloria Anzaldúa’s feminist theorizing, Delgado Bernal and Alemán offer a theory of school change where collisions, difficult solidarities, and transformative moments constitute a praxis of hope, imagination, and social justice.” —Sofia Villenas, professor, Cornell University

Women Who Stay Behind examines the social, educational, and cultural resources rural Mexican women employ to creatively survive the conditions created by the migration of loved ones. Using narrative, research, and theory, Ruth Trinidad Galván presents a hopeful picture of what is traditionally viewed as the abject circumstances of poor and working-class people in Mexico who are forced to migrate to survive. The book studies women’s and families’ use of cultural knowledge, community activism, and teaching and learning spaces. Throughout, Trinidad Galván provides answers to these questions: How does the migration of loved ones alter community, familial, and gender dynamics? And what social relations (convivencia), cultural knowledge, and women-centered pedagogies sustain women’s survival (supervivencia)? Researchers, educators, and students interested in migration studies, gender studies, education, Latin American studies, and Mexican American studies will benefit from the ethnographic approach and theoretical insight of this groundbreaking work.

Decolonial Voices offers a range of interdisciplinary essays that discuss racialised, subaltern, feminist and diasporic identities and the aesthetic politics of hybrid and mestiza/o cultural productions. In doing so, this volume brings together a body of theoretically rigorous interdisciplinary essays that articulate and expand the contours of Chicana and Chicano cultural studies. This collection seeks to represent several key directions in the field: first, it charts how subaltern cultural productions of the US/ Mexico borderlands (film, art, music, lit, pop. culture and alternate historiographies) speak to what Walter Mignolo has called the intersections of "local," "hemispheric," and "globalised" power relations of the border imaginary. Secondly, this collection excavates and recovers the Mexican women's and Chicana literary and cultural heritages (1850s-present) that have been ignored and suppressed by Euroamerican canons and patriarchal exclusionary practices. Our collection also seeks to expand the field in post-nationalist directions by creating an interethnic, comparative, and transnational dialogue between Chicana and Chicano, African American, Mexican feminist, and U.S. Native American cultural vocabularies. In charting these discursive movements of this growing and heterogeneous field, there is a commitment to understand how Chicana and Chicano cultural productions articulate a resistance to the multiplicity of oppression across race, class, gender, and sexuality, while performing a cultural mestizaje and hybridity in the age of transnational globalisations. Contributors include Norma Alarcón, Arturo J. Aldama, Frederick Luis Aldama, Cordelia Chávez Candelaria, Alejandra Elenes, Ramón Garcia, María Herrera-Sobek, Patricia Penn Hilden, Gaye T. M Johnson, Alberto Ledesma, Pancho McFarland, Amelia María de la Luz Montes, Laura Elisa Pérez, Naomi Quiñonez, Sarah Ramirez, Rolando J.

We live in other people's heads: avidly, reluctantly, consciously, unaware, mistakenly, and inescapably. Our social life is a constant negotiation among what we think we know about each other's thoughts and feelings, what we want each other to think we know, and what we would dearly love to know but don't. Cognitive scientists have a special term for the evolved cognitive adaptation that makes us attribute mental states to other people through observation of their body language; they call it theory of mind. Getting Inside Your Head uses research in theory of mind to look at movies, musicals, novels, classic Chinese opera, stand-up comedy, mock-documentaries, photography, and reality television. It follows Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy as he tries to conceal his anger, Tyler Durden as he lectures a stranger at gunpoint in Fight Club, and Ingrid Bergman as she fakes interest in horse races in Notorious. This engaging book exemplifies the new interdisciplinary field of cognitive cultural studies, demonstrating that collaboration between cognitive science and cultural studies is both exciting and productive.

In this interdisciplinary volume, contributors analyze the expression of Latina/o cultural identity through performance. With music, theater, dance, visual arts, body art, spoken word, performance activism, fashion, and street theater as points of entry, contributors discuss cultural practices and the fashoning of identity in Latino/a communities throughout the US. Examining the areas of crossover between Latin and American cultures gives new meaning to the notion of "borderlands." This volume features senior scholars and up-and-coming academics from cultural, visual, and performance studies, folklore, and ethnomusicology.

Chicanas/os are part of the youngest, largest, and fastest growing racial/ethnic 'minority' population in the United States, yet at every schooling level, they suffer the lowest educational outcomes of any racial/ethnic group. Using a 'counterstorytelling' methodology, Tara Yosso debunks racialized myths that blame the victims for these unequal educational outcomes and redirects our focus toward historical patterns of institutional neglect. She artfully interweaves empirical data and theoretical arguments with engaging narratives that expose and analyse racism as it functions to limit access and opportunity for Chicana/o students. By humanising the need to transform our educational system, Yosso offers an accessible tool for teaching and learning about the problems and possibilities present along the Chicano/a educational pipeline.

Critical storytelling, a rich form of culturally relevant, critical pedagogy, has gained great urgency in a world of standardization. <I>Crafting Critical Stories asks how social justice scholars and educators narrate, craft, and explore critical stories as a tool for culturally relevant, critical pedagogy. From the elementary to college classroom, this anthology explores how different genres of critical storytelling - oral history, digital storytelling, <I>testimonio, and critical family history - have been used to examine structures of oppression and to illuminate counter-narratives written with and by members of marginalized communities. The book highlights the complexity of culturally relevant, social justice education as pedagogues across the fields of education, sociology, communications, ethnic studies, and history grapple with the complexities of representation, methodology, and the meaning/impact of employing critical storytelling tools in the classroom and community.

"Drop That Knowledge is a profound contribution to our understanding of contemporary youth. The authors craft an elegant and energetic narrative that is incisive and inspiring. This is an important work!"--Sam M. Intrator, Smith College, co-director of Project Coach "Drop That Knowledge is a landmark contribution to our understanding of media and youth movements in the US. It's at the cutting-edge in telling the story of how young people are creating breadth and depth of diversity in the broadcast, cable, and satellite media. Innovative and engaging!" --Toby Miller, author of Makeover Nation: The United States of Reinvention "Drop That Knowledge draws deftly on the words, ideas, and passions of the young people it studies, locating them within broader contexts of contemporary education, policing and the media. This book is well written and full of accessible, poignant and entertaining vignettes."--George Lipsitz , University of California, Santa Barbara "The phrase 'drop that knowledge' becomes title and frame for a dazzling journey through the world of Youth Radio, an 18-year-old youth development organization and independent media production company in Oakland, Calif... While too many academics pontificate about the potential of the new digital media, Soep and Chávez write without pose or posture. Their message is earthshaking." --Rick Ayers, University of California, Berkeley, and William Ayers, University of Illinois, Chicago, Rethinking Schools "...dares to declare that young people really matter, what they think matters, what they say and do matters, and we should listen up and get out of the way...Drop that Knowledge is a must-read, especially for those of us who work in public media, who are coming to recognize that young people will lead our institutions to the holy grails of both diversity and innovation." --Julie Drizin, founding producer of "Democracy Now!" and NPR's "Justice Talking" "Provides a fascinating look behind the scenes at [a] youth media education and production powerhouse. . . . While much has been written about the power of youth media, not all analyses are as thoughtful and nuanced as what Soep and Chavez present in Drop That Knowledge. This book is 'not a rhetorical call to celebrate youth voice' but a comprehensive overview of the complex issues that arise in intergenerational media production." --Katie Donnelly, American University's Center for Social Media
