Description

Mexico, Nation in Transit examines how the Mexican migrant population in the United States is represented in the Mexican national imaginary - on both sides of the border. Exploring representations of migration in literature, film, and music produced in the past twenty years, Christina Sisk argues that Mexico is imagined as a nation that exists outside of its territorial borders and into the United States. Although some Americans feel threatened by the determined resilience of Mexican national identity among immigrants, Sisk counters that the persistence of immigrant Mexicans' identities with their homeland - with the cities, states, regions, and nation where they were born or have family - is not in opposition to their identity as Americans.
