"Call Me a Little Critical if You Will": Counterstories of Latinas Studying Abroad in Guatemala
Chang, Aurora
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v16 n1 p3-23 Jan 2017
This article examined a group of Latina students studying abroad. It highlighted ways in which identity manifests itself for Latinas in different contexts. It used counterstories, stories of historically marginalized groups in education. Primary findings were cultural dissonance; a reflection of past, present, and privilege; and the critical consumption of knowledge. Institutional suggestions to increase participation of students of color in study abroad programs and recommendation of effective practices are provided.
