The Evolution of Luz: A Case Study of Gendered Tensions of Romance and Domesticity in the Life of a Former Migrant, Chicana College Student
Reyes, Reynaldo, III; Valles, Estella; Salinas, Cinthia
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v10 n2 p147-160 Apr 2011
This paper is a case study of a Chicana former migrant in her first year of college through CAMP (College Assistance Migrant Program), and how she negotiated the challenges of family, romance, and the desire to reach her goals. Through narrative analysis, the authors examine the thoughts, words, and experiences of Luz's life to provide insight to the complex world of vacillating identities across cultural borders and gender role expectations of community, school, and society.
