Message 2: Hispanic Sub-Culture in the U.S.

Subject: Hispanic Sub-Culture in the U.S.

I am an Italian student, and I study English and hispanic American
literature I am studying Spanish speaking citizens who live in the
United States. I know that these people have their own literature, and
most of them speak Spanish or its Latino variants (Spanglish, Tex-Mex
and Cali), but at the same time they are living an americanization
process. I am going to finish the college and I have to uphold a
theory about that. My theory is: the transition to "ethnic minority"
implies a very special awareness of bicultural and bilingual
condition. It also involves the idea of permanence in the host
country; in the case of U.S. subculture, the coscience of being
"American" with a difference (Chicanos, Nuyoricans and Cuban comunity
in the U.S.). I don't know if you can suggest some links or articles
about these topics but I thank you very much at the same. Regards
