Replacing Beef with Guinea Pig?

             Have you ever eaten a guinea pig? If you live in the US, chances are you haven’t, as guinea pig is still a relatively new culinary trend, but it’s possible you’ve had one as a pet. However, in Peru and Colombia guinea pig is a longtime popular delicacy, a trend that is growing worldwide.                   Known as, “cuy” this delicacy is typically grilled or deep fried, and served spread down the middle, much in the manner of a lobster.  Proponents of this dish are describing it as…See More

Code-Switching

Hey Ladies,Do you ever find yourself switching from one language to another, say English to Spanish, as you think, speak or write? This is called code-switching, a phenomenon often experienced by multilingual persons.However, today a much broader conversation is being had about code-switching. It looks at the ways we speak differently in our professional lives, with our parents, our friends, a specific group, etc. We may be saccharine, proper, and compliant on the phone with our bosses only to…See More

THANK YOU!

This is my final blog post with Latinitas, and I wanted to use it to say a big thank you to the Latinitas community! I have learned so much from all of you, and enjoyed being an “honorary Latina” for a semester. Thanks to those who participated in discussions on my blogs, and took the time to read my work. I’ve made so many friends through this organization, and had the opportunity to teach so many terrific girls.

For those of you who are new to Latinitas, I recommend the organization…

From Tex-Mex Gringa to Fully Latina: My Summer Abroad in Argentina

Posted on May 2, 2013 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

              I grew up thinking I was a little Latina. I knew elementary Spanish, and I believed that salsa (the spicier the better) was way cooler than sliced bread. I tried to put cilantro on everything, even when wildly inappropriate, and my skin would tan darkly under the Texas sun. When I grew old enough I realized that I was in fact, very typically Caucasian, and my Spanish accent would have me pegged for a gringa before I could complete the word “Hola.” I was disappointed, but…

Expanding the Latina Identity: Asian Latinas

Posted on May 2, 2013 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

            On paper, Cecilia is an ordinary Latina. She was born and raised in Peru, given a common Latin Catholic name, and raised speaking Spanish. Her eyes and hair are long and dark, and yet when Cecilia—now a UT student—attends a Latino sponsored party, she is the only one who fails to receive the standard greeting. Instead of cheek kisses and Spanish, she gets a hand shake and English.

                Cecilia is set apart by the fact that she is Chinese. Her dark eyes are almond…
