She began engaging in activism around immigrant issues when she was a student at Illinois State University, helping lead the Occupy movement on campus. She has organized numerous action-driven campaigns around immigrant rights, environmental issues, racial equity, and economic justice. The goal is to educate students especially on the cultural significance of the symbols and images that are slowly becoming commercialized and appropriated.

The Significance of the Cross in Latino/a Perspective

Look for a 'cafecitos' sign at one of the tables. Stop by for a minute conversation in Spanish, no need to stay the whole hour. It would appear a Mexican man illegally crossing into the US is at fault.

As the former and the current sheriff search for answers, lives are changed forever". In Spanish with English subtitles. In German and Spanish with English subtitles. The presentation explores how Caribbean writers living in the US challenge ideas of power, violence, and identity commoditized in the Latin American dictator novel through their reinterpretation of Caribbean dictatorial regimes.

Their narratives alter ideological mappings of the Caribbean based on the discursive legacy of social revolution and political hegemony and empower individuals to take an active role as architects of the Trans-Caribbean space.

Flores , who is maneuvering to outrun his violent past and elude his unforgiving former associates. Together they must rely on faith, trust and street smarts if they are to survive their increasingly perilous journey towards the hope of new lives.

Despite this subordinated colonial experience, however, Puerto Ricans managed to secure national Olympic representation in the s and in so doing nurtured powerful ideas of nationalism. By examining how the Olympic movement developed in Puerto Rico, Antonio Sotomayor illuminates the profound role sports play in the political and cultural processes of an identity that developed within a political tradition of autonomy rather than traditional political independence. At the moment only bits and pieces of the Latino saga in the United States are known.

Those are initiatory contributions considering the conspectus of Latino American literature. However, the question is: where are we in that conspectus of Latino American literature? What is the state of Latino American Literature today? I teach a course listed as Latino American Literature , works by U. Latinos; I also teach a course listed as The Literature of Latin America , works in English translation by writers of the Latin American countries of this hemisphere. The categories defined by these two courses are important distinctions. Terms of identity are particularly important in a review of Latino American literature, since there has been a tendency to lump all Latinos into one homogeneous group.

The result of this lumping has been an undifferentiated mixture of Latinos from Latin America and Latinos who are of the United States. Why this differentiation? Because the experiences of Latin Americans and Latino Americans are different and those differences are reflected and manifest in their works. Given this distinction, the state of Latino American literature today is extraordinarily vibrant made more vibrant by the pulse of Latin American literature.

Of course there's a connection. Somos primos. Representing "various Latino nationalities" as Carlos Vasquez has described the participants of this conference, Latino Americans are attuned to the pulse of Latin America. The reverse is not always true.

Few Latino American writers find their works translated into Spanish for a Latin American literary public. Many Latinos in the United States have their origins in Spanish settlements dating back to the Sephardic Spanish Jews of New Amsterdam, the Spanish communities that were part of the Louisiana Purchase in —especially in New Orleans—and the Spanish communities like St Augustine that were part of the Florida acquisition by the United States in Countless Latinos immigrated to the United States from the founding of the nation to the present.

The Cuban American community of Yuba City, Florida, dates from the early 20 th century, long before the mass exodus of Cubans to the United States after In the United States today there are two categories of Latino writers each with considerably wide latitude in definition. The first group includes Latino writers from the Latin American countries previously mentioned with the exception of Puerto Rico since—because of the politics—all Puerto Ricans are considered U. For the most part, these Latino writers are still citizens of their countries, and their literary and social orientation are generally congruent with the literary and social orientations of their homelands.

Many are in the United States as political refugees or exiles, although many more are in the United States because they are simply at odds with the ideological trends in their countries. The Cuban poet Valladares is a good case in point of a Latino writer living and writing in the United States because of political differences with the ruling group of his country. For the most part, this group of Latino writers deals with themes and conventions traditionally part of the literary orientation of their homelands, not with themes pertinent to Latino struggles in the United States.

Their works are therefore not classified as Latino American literature. In this regard, the works of the Russian writers Solzenitzen written while he lived in exile in the United States are not considered American literature. Latino literary roots have yielded a vigorous and dynamic body of literature which, unfortunately, has been considered historically as part of a foreign enterprise rather than as part and parcel of our American literary heritage.

Looking for U. Latino writers in the 60s, one would not have found them since the Library of Congress and the Dewey Decimal System did not have that classification. The unfortunate truth of the matter is that few Americans outside of Hispanic literary specialists know very much about U. Latino literature today. To be sure, there are successful U. We describe a group of people by a white European culture that was pressed upon them.

So all Hispanics born in the US are now Anglos.

Nosotros Los Latinos, September/October 2018

If a poor Argentinian of Polish ancestry moves to the US, I doubt they will face any more discrimination than a poor person immigrating from Poland. And, Hispanic is confused for a race in the USA. Lastly, my mother is an immigrant from Portugal. Historically, Hispania is in reference to the Iberian peninsula which includes Portugal. Am I not a Latino? And if your family is from a Latinamerican country, you can be considered Latino. You can call yourself Latino or Hispanic. Trey, some of this is going to be what you want to call yourself and some of this is going to be related to your heritage.

You could call yourself Latino or Hispanic, they both would apply. Just plain American is always a winner if you were born in the U. I am fourth generation, my great grandmother was born and raised in Puerto Rico. My grandparents and parents were born in the U. However, I do not. Am I considered Spanish or Latino? Hi Brianne, the short answer is yes for Hispanic or Latina.

You would be considered Spanish if your family was from Spain. But if your family comes from a country where Spanish is the primary language, you would be considered Hispanic. And if your family comes from a Latin American country, you would be considered Latina. Which word you use is up to you. I was 7 years old now im Is it okay for me to say that im hispanic. I was 6 when my family immigrated and I too have dual cit.

Jaime E. Rodríguez O.

THey all mean a slightly different thing but they they all make up who I am. If you were born in Spain, then you are Hispanic, If you were born outside of Spain, you are not Hispanic. Me dirijo a usted para decirle que no estoy de acuerdo con lo que dice de hispanos y latinos. Primerament, perdon por mi espanol. Please, feel free to answer in English. I am fluent in your language but in terms of being accurate and deep in such a controversial matter I would rather prefer to express myself in spanish for is my first language and I wrongly thought yours as well.

Sandra, let me explain Spanish for you. I hope you study the language so that you can better understand the subject. And Hispanics and Latinos have all skin colors and races white, blacks, Asians, native indigenous, mixed, etc, etc. Simplemente, fueron expulsados de sus tierras.


I was wondering the difference between Hispanics and Latinos, and this page answered all my questions. Thank you! Brazilians do not consider ourselves latinos. Latinos are those old Italians Laccio region, Italy today. It would be an honor if we were latinos as this ancient European people. This sense Latin and hispanic is effected by descendants of Anglo-Saxon Americans. For this reason we do not consider ourselves Hispanic, but Brazilian or South American. We are South American then Americans, because the continent is called America! An indigenous native born in Brazil is not indigenous to Brazilians; is Brazilian too.

A Brazilian is not defined by the genotype or phenotype or by blood and heritage, but by birthplace: Brazil. Are not just those who have Anglo-Saxon or Germanic heritage which the ancient Romans called barbarians, because they were not speaking Latin are considered white. IE: Brazil is different from Latin. Brazil can be white, black, Indian, etc. IE: Brasil es diferente del latino. Brasil puede ser blanco, negro, indio, etc. Thank you for your insights!

What's the difference between Hispanic, Latino, and Spanish?

This is interesting information. In Mexico or at least in my part of Mexico , we consider ourselves Mexicanos, and even Latinos, but not necessarily Hispanos or Hispanic. As someone who lives in the U. All of my family is from Mexico, and we have very light-skinned members in all branches, with eyes that are brown, hazel, gray and even blue. And she laughs and says yes, it is, but hers is Fernandez.

For us brazilians, mexicans are northamericans and you speak a modern latin language. Mexicans speak castilian strictly, no spanish from Castilla la Mancha in Spain. You can speak castilian, galician, basque and catalan in Spain! There is not Hispanic today.


We are bigger than USA not considered Alaska , but we are millions in Brazil and we only speak portuguese, modern latin language. We are not hispanic from Portugal , neither latino. Who is from Quebec-Canada speaking french, modern latin language is latino or latinamerican for you? They live in America and speak a modern latin language too: french.

They are canadians and northamericans. Then, are they germanic? Jamaicans speak english. Are they anglo-saxan? They are jamaicans! We have a other connotation in Brazil. The color skin, eyes, hair, language: these things not define a brazilian or american, but birhtplace. The brazilian culture is different. No hay Hispania hoy. Esso no es correcto historicamente para nosotros. No somos hispanos de Portugal , ni latino. Ellos son los canadienses y norteamericanos. Son jamaiquinos. Sou brasileiro, mas vivi na Espanha. I think everyone should have a free will to identify with whatever they want.

The world is becoming more and more connected. In years we will all be just 1 mixture of culture. The term latino and hispanic does help identifying those who came from that part of the world, as far as identity its nothing to be taken literal, people of Americas came from many background, cultures, ancestry, its would be impossible to lump these diverse people in 1 basket. If anything your true identity is you as an individual as a human being in this small planet we have to share. What am I? Oh, I was raised in the states and born in Montevideo, Uruguay in case that changes anything, oh and raised in Jersey.

Interesting mix. You probably can call yourself Latino or Hispanic if you wanted — born in a Latin American country where they speak Spanish. You might be able to say that your family is European. Sandra let me tell you that I think you are mistaken. Mexicans are Hispanics. We are not Latinos. Yes, I went to school in Mexico too. In Mexico, the word Latino does not apply to Mexicans because Mexico considers itself part of Norteamerica, not Latinoamerica which really means Centroamericanos and Suramericanos.

So, in the US, Mexicans are Latinos. And I am not the one labeling anyone, just explaining the difference between the words Hispanic and Latino, which many people erroneously use as if they were the same thing. They are not the same. I think this conversation alone proves that this issue is more complex than just these two words, though. Thank you for this comment. I was born in NY, my father was born in NY, his father was born on an Island considered part of Italy, and his fore father ws born in Spain.

ANY form! How would this rule apply to food. I was in a Walmart the other day. One shelf was labeled Latino, the next Hispanic, and the third went back to Latino again. Was Walmart just trying to cover all their bases? I am American by birth. My parents were from Spain. I went back there with them when I was very little and did not return to live in the US again until I was in my twenties. What do I consider myself to be? I breeds intolerance, racism and every other negative I can think of where pride in ethnic tradition is concerned.

End of Story. Which accurately speaking from a historical perspective would technically cover way too many nations to list, considering the swathe of what was once the Roman-occupied, Latino-speaking world. The insistance to label onceself by ancient history is truly sad and should stop. It is one thing to discuss your heritage. It is another to constantly adhere to the notion that you must label yourself as this or that in order to count yourself part of some subculture you feel necessary to align yourself with for the sake of an identity by which to distinguish yourself from others.

Are they also considered Hispanos in Spain? For I have Canadian and Colombian nationalities! For indeed Hispanic culture is what took over in the south and Saxon culture is mainly what took over in the North. They both are Euro-centric cultural identities and well hey… we all speak euro-centric languages! Latin is a totally Eurocentric tongue.

Enlgish, Danish, German, so yeah, Hispano-Saxon. Im a Hispano-Saxon and full proud thereof! Thank you for explaining it so clearly! As a neither Latin or hispanic person this has always confused me. Are you currently writing a book or have you already written it? They are Latinos, they are not Hispanic. Hispanic includes the nearly 50 million Spaniards population of Spain who could never be called Latinos.

Saxon is an ethnic caller just like Hispanic. These sometimes confusing distinctions can also be made about people of African descent or those considered a part of the African Diaspora. Xenophobia I prefer the term black because it allows for regional and national distinctions: black Caribbean, black Jamaican, black African, and then of course, black American. Lisa, thank you for that comment.

Labels can help identify commonalities between segments of the population. Often, however, they are misused and allow for cliches and stereotypes. And they are often just wrong. I love that, Black American. I never liked the term African American because its not accurate for many. Especially those of creole descent like myself with dark brown skin. Black seems to cover more ground accurately. Just like Brazilians do. It makes too much of a correlation with a continent that I have very little insight and connection to. Latin is all off which covers pretty, read above — as covered by Park and Brasileno.

In short, Sandra, you need to do more research on this definitions. As I learn more of it, it makes me wonder…. Is it a class division: Males — who is latino and who is hispanic? For whom it may concerned, Latin or Latino are the same thing. All of them were conquered by the Romans who started this whole thing.

Because of that these people spoked Latin and after centuries of speaking and going through changes they developed their own languages based on Latin. In other words we are multiracial countries, because whether you are Canadian, or anyone in the continents of the Americas most of the population are mixed. Congratulations again you are part of the largest group of people in the Americas. The term is short for Latino Americano or any person who has roots in Latin America. Actually, Latinos are those who trace their ancestry from romance language countries that derived their language from the Latin therefore the word Latino language Italy, Spain, France, Portugal and Romania.

In other words if your roots come from i. Yes, Romanians are Latinos. Hispanics are all people who come from a country where the language is Spanish better term is castilian , this is why Brazilians are not Hispanics. I would say that he can list that in the college applications. He has many relatives in Brazil. His grandparents are buried there. My question is regarding Brazil. I have always thought of Brazilians as Latino as do many others.

My limited research gave me the following: Brazilians are Latinos but not Hispanic. This is because Brazil is a Latin American country, but not a country where they speak Spanish. Latinos are also Spaniards. Any person who speaks any Latin language is Latin, that means anyone born in a country where the language comes from Latin such as Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Romanian. Spaniards are also Latinos, they call themselves Latinos and Hispanic as well.

Please, if you are going to write an article about this subject do more research. Faith: Catholicism. Political views: Liberal. Often forgotten by many. Keep in mind that academics, governments, colleges, and the groups themselves all seem to have their own definitions. It is my understanding that the Romans gave the Iberian peninsula the name Hispania, which includes both Spain and Portugal. Hispanic refers to anyone who can trace their roots back to Hispania, including many Brazilians. There are different definitions of the word, depending on which dictionary your use.

Like the way you express yourself….. Need to learn from many of you guys!! I believe that both words would apply to your family. You are hispanic if YOU were born in a spanish speaker country and spanish is your main language, it has nothing to do with your parents as americans think. Also, I never heard the term of Argentinian — Italian! Argentina just happens to be a country where the majority of their ancestors migrated from a diverse part of Europe which was a large population of Italy. But they still are Hispanic and Latin! Hispanic: you can not include Portugal.

That one is a big mistake. Portugese people speak their own language, not spanish. Anglo: not all northern europeans are anglos. There are scandinavians, dutchs, germans, Polish… Latin is a language spoken in the Roman Empire. Not just Italy. The island of Great Britain spoke latin for some centuries. Just look at the etymology of Manchester or London. This last issue brings me back to the original topic of discussion: Who are the latinos?

So… are anglosaxons latinos? The oldest castillan language testimonies of the IXth century from the monastery of Valpuesta. This tiny land was inhabited by a basque speaking tribe called the bardules so Old Castillan was roughly a Latin Hispanic version invented by non-latin tribes. It was influenced by the arabic language of Al-Andalus and other romanic languages. This Kingdom conquisted the south of the Iberian peninsula belonging to muslims. Then, they crossed to the Atlantic sea, divided the world in two with Portugal an they conquered the west part of the South America, the Carribeans, Mejico, California, Texas, Florida and Philippines in order to appropriate their resources gold, coffee….

Not a latino. Un saludo cordial desde Francia para las Americas.
