Humor in Father-Daughter Immigration Narratives of Resistance
Gallo, Sarah
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v47 n3 p279-296 Sep 2016
This article draws from an ethnography on Mexican immigrant fathers and their children to examine humor in immigration narratives as acts of resistance. The analysis focuses on the devices employed by a father and daughter during their everyday talk and co-narration of an incident with police officers. Findings illustrate how the form and content of fathers' pedagogies of the home, including the strategic use of humor, prepare children to combat discrimination based on documentation status.
