1. Padilla Perez , Carol Isabel. Navigating Borders: Identity Formation and Latina Representation in Young Adult Literature.

Degree: MA, EDU Teaching and Learning, 2017, The Ohio State University

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Latinx population has become the largest minority group in the United States, at seventeen percent of the population in 2014. While young adult literature featuring Latinx young adult has grown in the past couple of years, there is still a need for representation, especially young adult Latina protagonists. The representation of Latinas in young adult literature has begun to grow, portraying the multiple layers and challenges Latina young women face in their formation of identities encased by the ruptures created by their surrounding environments in their cultural identity, gender and sexual identity, and social identities. Furthermore, the exploration and formation of identity in young adults is not only influenced by their exposure to media and books, but also, their understanding of current discourses and stereotypes and the ways that these are problematic. This research seeks to open conversations about Latina representation in young adult literature, as well as analyze the way these representations can be explored through the lens of Gloria Anzaldua’s borderlands. The lack of focus on young adult Latinas in both young adult publishing trends as well as scholarship calls attention as to why most of these discourses go unnoticed or unmoved. As the representation of Latina young adult literature grows, so should the scholarship aiding upcoming authors in the way that these representations can be improved and promoted to empower young adult Latinas in identifying themselves in these texts. With these representations comes the responsibility of ensuring that they are accurate and authentic in order to challenge and break through stereotypes in mainstream discourses.
