“Yo No Cruse La Frontera, La Frontera Me Cruzo” (I Didn’T Cross The Border, The Border Crossed Me), Heriberto Zavala

McNair Research Journal SJSU

The song, “Somos Mas Americanos” is a work of art, and every single one of its lyrics is tied to a history about my experiences, my family’s experiences, and the experiences of countless others. Lyrics like those in “Somos Mas Americanos” touch people’s souls and pierce their hearts because it speaks to the socioeconomic, racial hierarchy, racially biased politics, and laws against immigrant workers like myself in the U.S. Further than that, it educates listeners about the U.S./Mexican War and the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, where México lost its territory to the U.S., which ...

Re-Envisioning The Mexican American Experience In World War Ii: A Local History Of Sacramento & The Mexican American Wwii Generation, Juan Pablo Mercado May 2011

Re-Envisioning The Mexican American Experience In World War Ii: A Local History Of Sacramento & The Mexican American Wwii Generation, Juan Pablo Mercado

Master's Projects

Traditional U.S. historical scholars, as a matter of practice, carelessly push the history of the Mexican American community to the fringes of the collective historical consciousness of this country by selecting the common stories that students of all races learn. This study examines the problem of insufficient and inadequate historical scholarship pertaining to people of Mexican ancestry of the United States. By providing a local history of Mexican Americans in the Sacramento Valley this project provides a challenge to the legacy of historical exclusion by documenting the contributions and experiences of the Mexican American World War II generation and ...

Indigenous Ecology And Chicanada Coalition Building In The Dramatic Works Of Cherríe Moraga: “Living Models” For A Sustainable Future, Paula Straile-Costa Apr 2008

Indigenous Ecology And Chicanada Coalition Building In The Dramatic Works Of Cherríe Moraga: “Living Models” For A Sustainable Future, Paula Straile-Costa

NACCS Annual Conference Proceedings

Abstract:

This study focuses on three recent dramatic works by Cherríe Moraga’s written in the same period as her essay and poetry collection, The Last Generation. Heroes and Saints, Watsonville: Some Place Not Here, and Circle in the Dirt: El Pueblo de East Palo Alto draw from indigenous ecology and the historical archive of Chicano struggle that provide models for a sustainable future she envisions. The author shifts from poetry and essay - the lyrical, reflective mode of self-inquiry and expression for which she is so well known – to a collective dramatic dialogue allowing her to represent the diversity of ...


Eusebio Chacón’S Statist Narratives Of Nuevo México, Daisy Salazar Apr 2008

Eusebio Chacón’S Statist Narratives Of Nuevo México, Daisy Salazar

NACCS Annual Conference Proceedings

Abstract:

The 1890s in New Mexico were a time of considerable political, cultural, and social upheaval as the question of statehood – which would remain unresolved until 1912 – roiled the population. In 1892 Eusebio Chacón’s two novellas, El Hijo de la Tempestad and Tras la Tormenta la Calma, appeared in “El Boletín Popular,” one of Northern New Mexico’s largest Spanish-language newspapers. “El Boletín Popular’s” positive stance towards statehood offers a political lens through which we might read Chacón’s fiction as a proactive instantiation of nuevomexicano cultural tradition. In his introductions to the novellas Chacón denies any Anglo ...
