Abstract

At the center of this book is the view of narrative as a social practice and a way to interpret and validate the experiences of people, particularly Mexican descent women. These women bring their complex experiences as immigrants in the U.S.-Mexico border alive in Spanish with powerful remarks that transect issues related to identity construction, emotions, language ideology, and racial discourses. This book includes six chapters, each of which provides an abstract and listed keywords. The book would be of interest to scholars and students of sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, immigration and education, Chicana/o and Latina/o studies, and gender studies.The first chapter, “Mexicalifornia: Mexican immigrant women at the Tijuana-San Diego border”, provides the social background where this book is rooted, Southern California (San Diego). The border was viewed as a contested place, a militarized one that deters immigrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexican border and criminalized them, or as viewed by Anzaldúa (1987), la frontera, the borderland influenced by the richness of the cultural, ethnic, and linguistic Mexican heritage and where identities and social constructs are negotiated. Across this border, Relaño Pastor recruited 18 Mexican immigrant women at La Clase Mágica [the magic class] (LCM), a community and computer-based bilingual/bicultural after
