What You Need to Know About : Latino Perspectives

Latino perspectives to communication theory have evolved from perspectives that considered the role of racism in the cultural, social, and political marginalization of Latinas/os in the United States to perspectives emphasizing the complexity of identity formation, in particular  the roles of border culture, immigration, and transnationalism. In this, Latino perspectives evolve in parallel theoretical and historical axes. In terms of theory, Latino work evolves alongside critical race theory in the United States and accordingly, begins with sociological concerns about marginalization and pays increasing attention to poststructuralist concerns with identity theory. The theoretical broadening echoes the evolution of Latino social movements, which gained strength in the public sphere and academia during the 1960s and 1970s, and have since multiplied in goals, identity perspectives, and social-justice claims. Because theoretical broadening is parallel to social movements and activism and because of its commitment to articulating through theory social-justice claims, the evolution of Latino perspectives is a good example of critical communication theory.
