The second half of CHI 10 has focused primarily on shifting modes of racialization in the 20th century and the forms of Chicanx resistance that have arisen in response. We’ve discussed:
- The exploitation of the laboring Chicanx subject and resultant labor rights organizing
- The criminalization of the Chicanx subject and the civil rights battles waged to gain recognition for Chicanxs in law/society
- The fear of radical or revolutionary Chicanx youth and their competing visions for Chicanx politics
For this final essay, you will explain how the Chicanx movement came into formation in the twentieth century through each of the three histories of organizing listed above. In order to do so, must first explain the specific conditions of Chicanx racialization in the twentieth century that have generated collective resistance. Second, discuss in specific detail how each of these three histories of organizing have imagined and enacted Chicanx resistance in their constructions of Chicanismo. Use clear examples, paying attention to the interactions between capital, law, and ideology as racializing forces and the varying ways the movement chooses to respond to these racializing forces.
