Beschreibung

This study is a phenomenological exploration and description of Mexican American identity. I focus on the conditions that made possible my muted ethnic identity, in which although I was a third generation Mexican American, who was predominantly raised by first generation immigrants, I came to understand myself as white. I also focus on the process of decolonization that is particular to my experience in Northwest Indiana, a location to which thousands of Mexicans and many other immigrants migrated to work in the steel industry in the 1920s. By examining my own identity constitution through the intersection of race, class, gender, and industry in Northwest Indiana, I argue that those intersections in that Midwestern locale shaped an experience that is related to, but significantly different from, the far more thoroughly researched comparable experience in the Southwest. and one that shaped my identity as an industrial, insurgent Chicana.
