Latina Teens, Migration, and Popular Culture

This richly ethnographic book explores the relationship between migration and popular culture through a case study of the consumption practices of working-class, transnational Latina teens. While everyday consumption practices are examined at the local level, the processes of identity construction that Vargas seeks to address are akin to those created by diasporic youth around the world.


"One of the book's main contributions to media studies is Vargas's consideration of migratory status as central to understanding media consumption practices, along with class, race, and gender."
