Abstract: In this article we seek to contribute to a greater understanding of citizenship by exploring the gendered experiences of Latin American-origin immigrants in the Phoenix metro area. Making use of the literature from sociology, political science, economics, anthropology and ethnic and gender studies, we examine how immigrants maneuver through the legalization process, and how their place vis a vis the law affords or denies them membership and rights. Although men and women share common experiences in the legalization process, their lived experiences and the legalization process often are vastly different. We explore some of these gender differences by relying on in-depth interviews with women and men from Mexico and Central America in Phoenix, conducted from 1998 through 2004. The data reveal that immigration policies reflect norms based on ideals of a nuclear family in which geographic origins, race, religion, gender and sexuality matter and continue to deny women full participation and inclusion in US society. Although immigration generates change for immigrant women, often this transformation remains embedded in a patriarchal order. As such, women for the most part, remain dependent on men through judicial, economic and cultural standards created by men that dictate the process to citizenship. This study suggests that, though in principle the law is gender neutral, gender emerges as a central organizing principle in the relationship immigrants have with immigration law from the very act of crossing the border (physical and legal) through the naturalization process.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The title of this paper paraphrases the main leitmotif Sreten Ugričić’s novel To an Unknown Hero. Published in 2010, the narrative of this novel is set in 2014 and focuses on Gavrilo Princip and his return on the centennial anniversary of his assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Using Ugričić’s novel as a principal case study, this paper discusses the erosion of the historical vision in Serbian culture in the 20th century, and its replacement with what J.G. Ballard called the “myths of the near future.” This near future is strikingly dystopian and its main theme is the defeat of the past hopes for the future that has arrived.
