Whiteness on the Border

Mapping the US Racial Imagination in Brown and White

Author: Lee Bebout

Historically, ideas of whiteness and Americanness have been built on the backs of racialized communities. The legacy of anti-Mexican stereotypes stretches back to the early nineteenth century when Anglo-American settlers first came into regular contact with Mexico and Mexicans. The images of the Mexican Other as lawless, exotic, or non-industrious continue to circulate today within US popular and political culture. Through keen analysis of music, film, literature, and US politics, Whiteness on the Border demonstrates how contemporary representations of Mexicans and Chicano/as are pushed further to foster the idea of whiteness as Americanness. Illustrating how the ideologies, stories, and images of racial hierarchy align with and support those of fervent US nationalism, Lee Bebout maps the relationship between whiteness and American exceptionalism. He examines how renderings of the Mexican Other have expressed white fear, and formed a besieged solidarity in anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. Moreover, Whiteness on the Border elucidates how seemingly positive representations of Mexico and Chicano/as are actually used to reinforce investments in white American goodness and obscure systems of racial inequality. Whiteness on the Border pushes readers to consider how the racial logic of the past continues to thrive in the present.

The Immigration Crisis

Nativism, Armed Vigilantism, and the Rise of a Countervailing Movement

Immigration remains one of the most pressing and polarizing issues in the United States. In The Immigration Crisis, the political scientist and social activist Armando Navarro takes a hard look at 400 years of immigration into the territories that now form the United States, paying particular attention to the ways in which immigrants have been received. The book provides a political, historical, and theoretical examination of the laws, personalities, organizations, events, and demographics that have shaped four centuries of immigration and led to the widespread social crisis that today divides citizens, non-citizens, regions, and political parties. As a prominent activist, Navarro has participated broadly in the Mexican-American community's responses to the problems of immigration and integration, and his book also provides a powerful glimpse into the actual working of Hispanic social movements. In a sobering conclusion, Navarro argues that the immigration crisis is inextricably linked to the globalization of capital and the American economy's dependence on cheap labor.

Wenn Tassie abends ihr Vogelkostüm anlegt und in wildem Lauf über die Kartoffelfelder stürmt, um Mäuse und andere Schädlinge zu vertreiben, hat sie ganz kurz das Gefühl, wirklich zu fliegen. Tassie Keltjin ist zwanzig Jahre alt und verlässt die elterliche Farm irgendwo im Mittleren Westen. Amerika rüstet zum Einsatz in Afghanistan, und sie beginnt zu studieren, ahnungslos und rührend entflammt für Sylvia Plath und Simone de Beauvoir. Sie braucht einen Job und findet ihn als Teilzeit-Kindermädchen bei Sarah und Edward, die dabei sind, ein Kind zu adoptieren. Aus Mary, zwei Jahre alt, weiße Mutter, schwarzer Vater, wird Emmie, Kind weißer Mittelschichteltern, und Tassie zu ihrer Hauptbezugsperson. Mit der fragilen Anmut einer Schlafwandlerin gerät Tassie in eine erste Liebe und immer tiefer hinein in das komplizierte Leben einer fremden Familie. Wie fern ihr in einem knappen Jahr die ländliche Kindheit, Eltern und Bruder gerückt sind, merkt Tassie, als sie jäh sowohl ihre Liebe als auch ihren Job verliert. Die Schlafwandlerin wacht auf und nichts ist mehr, wie es war, am wenigsten sie selbst. Mit ihrem neuen Roman zeigt Lorrie Moore, was Literatur im besten Fall zu leisten vermag. Mit Tassie schenkt sie dem Leser eine ganz und gar lebendige, ganzund gar zauberhafte und ergreifende Figur, und während sie mit dem Witz, der zarten Klugheit, für die sie berühmt ist, deren Geschichte erzählt, packt sie wie nebenbei große gesellschaftsrelevante Themen an: Adoption und unterschwelligen Rassismus, Amerikas kriegerische Außenpolitik.

Die missionarische Gesellschaft

Mikrostrukturen einer kolonialen Globalisierung

Author: Helge Wendt

Publisher: Franz Steiner Verlag Wiesbaden gmbh

ISBN: 9783515098649

Category: History

Page: 321

English summary: Helge Wendt describes the social composition of Catholic and Protestant missionaries of various European colonial states between 1700 and 1900 from a cultural-historical perspective. He therefore works especially from the content-specific and theoretical context of mission, globalization and colonialism. The focus of this work rests on the missionary settlements, with which the missionary community was to be involved. How did the missionaries envision the coexistence of non-European and European groups and under what forms could they be realized? How did the educational efforts contribute to the integration of the missionary community? And why should the promotion of an indigenous clergy prove difficult in the colonial context? Examples from Spanish, English and French colonial regions in South and North America, West and East Africa, India, Sri Lanka and the Philippines make clear a discursive context, which concentrated itself in missions locally to a mestizo community. German description: Aus kulturhistorischer Perspektive zeichnet Helge Wendt die Gesellschaftsgestaltung durch katholische und protestantische Missionare aus verschiedenen europaischen Kolonialstaaten zwischen 1700 und 1900 nach. Dabei arbeitet er besonders den inhaltlichen und theoretischen Zusammenhang von Mission, Globalisierung und Kolonialismus heraus.Der Fokus liegt auf der Missionssiedlung, in der die missionarische Gesellschaft verwirklicht werden sollte. Wie stellten sich die Missionare das Zusammenleben von nicht-europaischen und europaischen Gruppen vor und welche Formen konnten sie verwirklichen? Wie trugen die Erziehungsbemuehungen zur Integration der missionarischen Gesellschaft bei? Und wie sollte sich die Forderung eines indigenen Klerus im schwierigen kolonialen Kontext gestalten? Beispiele aus spanischen, englischen und franzosischen Kolonialgebieten in Sued- und Nordamerika, West- und Ostafrika, Indien, Sri Lanka und den Philippinen verdeutlichen einen diskursiven Zusammenhang, der sich in den Missionen vor Ort zu einer mestizischen Gesellschaft verdichtete.
