Abstract:

An interdisciplinary debate is currently taking shape regarding the usefulness of pan-ethnic identities; scholars in the field of Political Science as well as fields focused on the study of people of color such as Black Studies, Latino/Chicano Studies, and/or Asian Studies are involved. They are asking and responding to questions surrounding the value of this type of ethnic self-identification. Whereas it is clear that there is evidence supporting the arguments for as well as against encouraging pan-ethnic identifiers, prior research has shown that a small number of Latino/as in the United States choose pan-ethnic identifiers such as Latino, Hispano, or Hispanic to classify their ethnic identity. This pan-ethnic identity has been named latinidad. While this paper forgoes the debate concerning the value of latinidad, it does ask questions about this group that represents approximately 34% of Latina/o respondents of the National Latino Political Survey (NLPS): do they comprise a politically, socially, or economically distinctive sub-group within the Latino population? If so, what specific characteristics or variables set them apart? Does the use of latinidad have significant political implications?
