Latin / U.S: Cotidiano free pdf Sociological readings of our globalized twenty-first-century world begin to be full of impossibilities: defining the "Latino" phenomenon in the United States is one of these. Any attempt to identify either differential traits or a common denominator for Latinos in the US tends to fail. It is always possible to find some contradiction that fundamentally delegitimizes the common trait believed to be discovered. This is the major issue faced by Latin/US and also one of its principal stimulants. The Latino community is a work-in-progress that is updated with new material every minute. Nevertheless, we can certainly find factors and conditions that awaken and encourage a marked sense of community. Latin/US therefore starts by questioning the Latino stereotypes that appear to us with the immediacy of automatic references. We question the stereotype not because it is not representative, or because it fails to reflect the experience of the community, but rather because there is nothing new in it. The Latino experience in the United States is a changing reality that has evolved, mutated, regenerated and reinvented itself since its origins. Latin/US is a visual exploration from different viewpoints, offering a multifaceted vision that does not seek to identify, frame, or contain. It simply draws an imaginary map of visual narratives and modes of representation defined in terms of the identity and creative spirit of "Latino" reality.
