Race, National Exclusion, and the Implications for Global Citizenship Education
Through transnational and cultural citizenship frameworks, this chapter explores adolescent Latinas’ experiences with race and citizenship in the United States and the implications of their experiences for education for global citizenship. Findings reveal that Latina youth understand citizenship as opportunity and racialized vulnerability, flexibility, and critique. Race, therefore, holds implications for global citizenship education, particularly in ways that disrupt universal and unifying notions of global citizenship. Latina youth perspectives underscore how citizenship lies between the nation-state and the amorphously global, for their notions of citizenship are deeply embedded in questions of race at the national and transnational levels.
