"They Make You Invisible": Negotiating Power at the Academic Intersections of Ethnicity, Gender, and Class
Briscoe, Felecia M.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v42 n2 p233-248 2009
This Foucauldian case study examines the academic conflicts of Mexican American women and girls, how they negotiate those conflicts, and the identity effects of their negotiations. It extends Gloria Anzaldua's (1999) work and builds upon those who have studied the schooling experiences of Mexican American women and girls. Similar conflicts for these women are found at all academic levels. The negotiation of these conflicts affected the identity of academia (transformation and reproduction) and the women (hybridization and colonization). (Contains 1 note.)
