Chapter 4 examines the reciprocal intellectual and political effects between “Latino/a” in the U.S. and the very idea of “Latin America,” a historical interaction that has been naturalized as age-old but is in fact of very recent creation. The chapter discusses both the advantages and disadvantages of the political and academic agenda that has sought to consider Latino/a and Latin America as an atavistic unity of historical analysis and political action.
