The State of Chicano Research in Family, Labor and Migration Studies. Proceedings of the Stanford Symposium on Chicano Research and Public Policy (1st, Stanford, California, March 3-5, 1982).
Valdez, Armando, Ed; And Others
Symposium organizers commissioned papers that examined existing Chicano research in studies of family, labor, and migration, three subjects continually recurring in Chicano research. The papers were organized in four sessions: historical and contemporary research on Chicano workers, foundations of research on Chicano families, Chicano domestic and international migration, and Chicano research and public policy. In each session, two presenters addressed guiding theoretical perspectives, major methodological approaches, and central problems and deficiencies of the research and two discussants addressed future research, the need and prospects for interdisciplinary research, and the role of basic social research in policy formation. Papers and commentaries addressed urban Chicano workers from an historical perspective, research on Chicano workers, traditions of research on Chicano workers, research on Chicano workers from a legal perspective, empirical and theoretical developments in Chicano family studies, conceptualization of history of the Chicano family, on-going research questions about the Chicano family, assessment of Chicano residential and internal migration patterns, paradigms for studying Mexican immigration, Hispanic underrepresentation in the federal bureaucracy, public policy development and the Chicano community, and public policy and the Chicano population.
