Social Movements, Globalization, and the Reconfiguration of Mexican/Chicano Nationalism

McCaughan describes efforts by indigenous and feminist social movements and activist artists in Mexico and the United States to reconfigure mexicanidad and chicanismo in ways that are more liberating than were the old nationalist projects. He suggests that accelerated economic globalization and the changing nature of Mexico-United States integration may aid such efforts.
