Citizenship and Education in the Homework Completion Routine
Figueroa, Ariana Mangual
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v42 n3 p263-280 Sep 2011
This article draws from a 23-month ethnographic study of mixed-status Mexican families living in the New Latino Diaspora to examine how citizenship status impacts undocumented parents' and children's participation in everyday activities. Specifically, the analysis illustrates how mothers and sons in two families negotiate school and home definitions of citizenship during Homework Completion Routines. During this recurrent educational activity, family members socialized one another to identities that were inextricably linked to migratory status.
