No Soy de Aqui ni Soy de Alla: Transgenerational Cultural Identity Formation
cultural identity, acculturation, immigration, identity formation, family, multigeneration, transgenerational, oppression, differentiation, connection
The transgenerational cultural identity model offers a detailed understanding of the immigration experience by challenging agendas of assimilation and by expanding on existing theories of cultural identity. Based on this model, immigration is a complex phenomenon influenced by many variables such as sociopsychological dimensions, family, oppression, and quality of reception in the new country. These factors produce different outcomes of cultural identity. Potential applications of the model for educational institutions serving Latina/o students are discussed.
