     Chicanx/Latinx Studies at UVA: Library's Research Guide

aa
This Library's Research Guide helps students, faculty and researchers navigate University of Virginia Library services and resources dealing with Latinx Studies.

aa
Recognizing that we adopt what is possibly a controversial terminology in this guide, “Latin/x” and/or “Chican/x”, we believe these terms are the most inclusive options available today. By using these terms, we promote, support, and emphasize the intersecting identities of Latin American and/or South America descendants living in the United States.
These terms: 1) reinforce the belonging to all racial backgrounds, and as Tanisha Love Ramirez pointed out, “make room for people who are trans, queer, agender, non-binary, gender non-conforming or gender fluid”; 2) promote a cohesive postcolonial identity by confronting a language (and a legacy) imposed on the Americas by European traditions, and 3) recognize all of “nuestra gente” (our people) that conform this complex culture.
