Summary
"Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Romance Languages - Spanish Studies, grade: A, University of Canberra, language: English, abstract: The play titled Los Vendidos, which when translated into Spanish means “sell outs”, was written in 1967 by Luis Valdez and was first performed according to Baru (2011), in East Los Angeles at the Brown Beret Junta. In the play, the author seeks to display the social disparities between the Latin community and the locals in California. In effect, the role of the various authorizes such as the state, local and federal governments are highlighted to portray certain misconceptions about Americans towards Latinos. Although out the play, it is evident that Luis Valdez adapts to some great extent, character traits innate in the Mexican culture. Generally, the play seeks to inform the larger American audience of the triviality of some of the stereotypes assumed with regard to the Mexicans living in California, and how ridiculous these stereotypes and misconceptions are. In this paper, an in-depth analysis of the emerging themes, motifs and characters in the play will be discussed. "Scripts of | GRIN Verlag | Argument ..."

Summary
"Displacing Whiteness makes a unique contribution to the study of race dominance. Its theoretical innovations in the analysis of whiteness are integrated with careful, substantive explorations of whiteness on an international, multiracial, cross-class, and gendered terrain. Contributors localize whiteness, as well as explore its sociological, anthropological, literary, and political dimensions. Approaching whiteness as a plural rather than singular concept, the essays describe, for instance, African American, Chicana/o, European American, and British experiences of whiteness. The contributors offer critical readings of theory, literature, film and popular culture; ethnographic analyses; explorations of identity formation; and examinations of racism and political process. Essays examine the alarming epidemic of angry white men on both sides of the Atlantic; far-right electoral politics in the UK; underclass white people in Detroit; whiteness in "brownface" in the film Gandhi; the engendering of whiteness in Chicana/o movement discourses; "whiteface" literature; Roland Barthes as a critic of white consciousness; whiteness in the black imagination; the inclusion and exclusion of suburban "brown-skinned white girls"; and the slippery relationships between culture, race, and nation in the history of whiteness. Displacing Whiteness breaks new ground by specifying how whiteness is lived, engaged, appropriated, and theorized in a range of geographical locations and historical moments, representing a necessary advance in analytical thinking surrounding the burgeoning study of race and culture.

Summary
"Oliver-Rotger inquires into the relationship between intimate and public spaces in Chicana literature. Without claiming the borderlands as exclusive of the Chicana/o imagination, this book acknowledges the importance of this metaphor for bringing to view a more intercultural United States, allowing it to become inflected with the particularity of each text.
