Winner of AM&P EXCEL Gold Award. While all students in your class, building, or school district need your support, the Black and Latino male students--the most underserved, suspended, and expelled students in education--need you to understand them as you support them so that they can thrive academically. Author Robert Jackson reminds teachers and administrators that although "a great majority of all the stories in the news about Black and Latino males are negative," these young men need you to work through any biases you may have and internalize and employ the core beliefs and mindsets necessary to best serve your Black and Latino male students.
This volume is a collection of essays presented at the 20th annual Eugene Scassa Mock Organization of American States conference, an academic conference for faculty and graduate students centered on the study of Inter-American relations and politics within the Western Hemisphere.
Since the 1990s, there has been unparalleled growth in the literary output from an ever more diverse group of Latina/o writers. The extant criticism, however, has yet to catch up with the diversity of writers we label Latina/o and the range of themes about which they write. Little sustained scholarly attention has been paid, moreover, to the very category--Latina/o--under which we group this literature. Latina/o Literature Unbound, thus, begins with a fundamental question "What does it mean to label a work of literature or an entire corpus of literature Latina/o?"
No contemporary development underscores the transnational linkage between the United States and Spanish-language América today more than the wave of in-migration from Spanish-language countries during the 1980s and 1990s. This development, among others, has made clear what has always been true, that the United States is part of Spanish-language América. This book underscores long-standing contact, such as code-mixing and bi/multilingualism, between the two languages in US language and culture.
