Synopsis

This richly ethnographic book explores the relationship between migration and popular culture through a case study of the consumption practices of working-class, transnational Latina teens. While everyday practices are examined at the local level, the processes of identity construction that Vargas seeks to address are akin to those created by diasporic youth around the world. The book is suitable for graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses in Latina/o communication studies and international/global communication. Scholars researching youth will also find the book of particular interest.

The Author: Lucila Vargas is Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She received her Ph.D. in international communication from the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of Social Uses and Radio Practices (1995) and editor of Women Faculty of Color in the White Classroom (Peter Lang, 2002).
