Writing Latina/o Historical Narratives: Narratives at the Intersection of Critical Historical Inquiry and LatCrit
Salinas, Cinthia S.; Fránquiz, María E.; Rodríguez, Noreen Naseem
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v48 n2 p264-284 Jun 2016
This qualitative case study examines the experiences of Latina prospective teachers enrolled in a bilingual social studies methods course that focused attention upon critical historical inquiry. The students built historical narratives that deliberately addressed oft-ignored histories of Communities of Color. The analysis argues however that building counter narratives through traditional evidentiary trails ignores the fundamental experiences and epistemological frameworks of Latinas. Framing such pedagogies with LatCrit allows for those epistemologies that influence Latinas' opposition to majoritarian tales and creation of counter stories.
