Searching for "Home" in Dixie: Identity and Education in the New Latin@ South
Carrillo, Juan F.
Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, v52 n1 p20-37 2016
This study explores how 3 Latino male college students who attended rural, K-12 North Carolina schools use their conceptions of "home" to fight against oppressive forces in the southern United States. Specifically, through the use of life history data, I unpack both the challenges that they face and the agency-laden decisions that they make to navigate various tensions related to their Latin@ identities. This work extends current literature on men of color in schools, which largely omits the experiences of Latino male students that come of age in rural, southeastern, US settings.
