HISPANIC SELF FASHIONING:
THE MAKING OF A MEXICANAMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS IDENTITY
ABSTRACT: This interdisciplinary paper explores the socio-economic but also discursive emergence of a Mexican-American middle class against a rhetorical erasure stemming from a long held antipathy toward the middle class by Western intellectuals including the Chicano intelligentsia of the 1960s and 70s. The analysis draws on historical and contemporary socio-economic data but also painting, literature, popular culture and ethnography. Limón is a professor of American Literature and American Studies.
