Mexican Americans/Chicana/os/Chicanx form a majority of the overall Latino population in the United States. In this collection, established and emerging Chicanx researchers diverge from the discipline’s traditional Southwest focus to offer academic and non-academic perspectives specifically on the Pacific Northwest and Midwest. Their multidisciplinary papers address colonialism, gender, history, immigration, labor, literature, sociology, education, and religion, setting the Chicanx movement and experience beyond customary scholarship and illuminating how Chicanxs have challenged racialization, marginalization, and isolation in the northern borderlands. Contributors: Norma Cardenas and Rachel Maldonado, retired (both Eastern Wash. Univ.), the late Carlos Maldonado, Oscar Rosales Castaneda (activist, writer), Josue Q. Estrada (Univ. of Wash.), Theresa Melendez, emeritus, Dylan Miner, and Dionicio Valdes (all Mich. St. Univ.), and Ernesto Todd Mireles (Prescott College).
