Problems of Representation in the Writing of Julia Alvarez

(p.73) 3 Speaking for Others
On Latinidad

Marta Caminero-Santangelo

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the problems of representing, such as those invoked by the two senses of “representing”. It has already been discussed that the deeply problematic assumption that a Latino/Latina taken from one-national-origin-group could in any sense be said to be “representative” of Latinos/Latinas from another group. This leads to the fundamental problem with Latino/Latina panethnicity. However, it is noted that the problem of representation can also arise in much more subtle and even unpredictable forms.

Keywords:   problems, representing, representative, panethnicity, representation, Latinos/Latinas, assumption
