Abstract:It is with the multiplicity of these tools that I will attempt to intertwine their principal tenets (e.g., narrative inquiry, historical analysis and coalition building) of LatCrit and Queered Chicana Theory to go beyond a traditionally pathological approach toward queers in general to analyze institutional dynamics that both impede and contribute to the prosperity of these young women in their education and societal dimensions (e.g., family, culture, community). Lastly, I hope to provide some insight in utilizing these theoretical frameworks for developing avenues to evaluate, critique and create policy and research that implement transformative practices in school communities and begin the journey to deepen an intersectional discussions on how multiple layers of identity (sexual identity, gender, race and class) exist in everyday practices and routines in school communities.
