Working the Boundaries

Working the Boundaries While Chicago has the second largest Mexican population among U.S cities, relatively little ethnographic attention has focused on its Mexican community This much needed ethnography of Mexicans living and working in Chicago examines processes of racialization, labor subordination, and class formation the politics of nativism and the structures of citizenship and immigration law Nicholas De Genova develops a theory of Mexican Chicago as a transnational social and geographic space that joins Chicago to innumerable communities throughout Mexico Mexican Chicago is a powerful analytical tool, a challenge to the way that social scientists have thought about immigration and pluralism in the United States, and the basis for a wide ranging critique of U.S notions of race, national identity, and citizenship.De Genova worked for two and a half years as a teacher of English in ten industrial workplaces primarily metal fabricating factories throughout Chicago and its suburbs In Working the Boundaries he draws on fieldwork conducted in these factories, in community centers, and in the homes and neighborhoods of Mexican migrants He describes how the meaning of Mexican is refigured and racialized in relation to a U.S social order dominated by a black white binary Delving into immigration law, he contends that immigration policies have worked over time to produce Mexicans as the U.S nation state s iconic illegal aliens He explains how the constant threat of deportation is used to keep Mexican workers in line Working the Boundaries is a major contribution to theories of race and transnationalism and a scathing indictment of U.S labor and citizenship policies.
