Transforming Academia and Theorizing Spaces for Latinx in Higher Education: "Voces Perdidas" and "Voces De Poder"
Salinas, Cristobal, Jr.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n8 p746-758 2017
The concepts of "voces perdias" and "voces de poder" are used as a symbolic representations and reflections of oppression and power in academia. Seventy-four percent of scholarship across the world is published in English. The author argues the importance of publishing in Spanish as form of liberatory practice to provide a voice for Spanish-speaking communities who currently do not have access (to the power of academia and of information), and whose lived experiences are not acknowledged or captured in this medium, and who have by-and-large been marginalized and forgotten in research. In attempt to help improve our understandings of Latinos/as in society--and provide access, give a voice, and reflect on their lived experiences--we must publish in Spanish and teach about the "voces perdidas" that have been erased from the educational curriculum, and the "voces de poder" who have dominated and silenced the "voces perdidas".
