Narrating Cultural Citizenship: Oral Histories of First-Generation College Students of Mexican Origin.
Benmayor, Rina
Social Justice, v29 n4 p96-121 2002
Uses student research to analyze how students in an oral history course negotiate multiple cultures, drawing upon different funds of knowledge. Explains that traditional assessment often stigmatizes bilingual/bicultural students as academically deficient. This course provides space for first-generation students to utilize their lived expertise. The oral histories of first-generation Mexican students highlight a process of turning histories of cultural and economic subordination into empowering integrative spaces. (SM)
