Denise Ferreira da Silva An Outline of a Global Political Subject: Reading Evo Morales's Election as a (Post-) Colonial Event 8 Seattle Journal for Social Justice 25 (Fall/Winter 2009) Political theory, in particular, runs a great risk of losing its distinctive value in intellectual life and even its offerings to political life, if it becomes trapped by responding to events, by the time and space of events.

Tayyab Mahmud Cluster Introduction: Space, Subordination, and Political Subjects 8 Seattle Journal for Social Justice 15 (Fall/Winter 2009) A place on the map is also a place in history. Adrienne Rich Master narratives of any era reflect the limit horizons of that era--the hegemonic ontological categories that over time so imprint the imaginary that even critique remains imprisoned in the professed normalcy of those categories. This imprisonment curtails the transformative potential... 2009

Michael A. Olivas Introduction 12 Harvard Latino Law Review 1 (Spring 2009) Given how hard it is to write casebooks and instructional materials, the real question is: why would someone do it? There are mixed motivations and inspirations for doing so and, as in running for elected office or applying for a law school deanship, they are a contradictory mix of self-abnegating altruism and selfish ambition. Despite the many... 2009

Cristina M. Rodríguez Latinos: Discrete and Insular No More 12 Harvard Latino Law Review 41 (Spring 2009) Ordinarily, court cases that address the Latino experience in the United States are presented as addenda to larger narratives--as casebook squibs.

Pp. 256. $41.00 Cloth; $21.00 Paper 43 Law and Society Review 703 (September, 2009) Races are made, not born, and the making of Mexican Americans as a race, tracked so carefully by Gomez in Manifest Destinies, was highly instructive for me as someone engaged in thinking about the making of Muslim as a race in the post-9/11 period.

Leticia M. Saucedo National Origin, Immigrants, and the Workplace: the Employment Cases in Latinos and the Law and the Advocates' Perspective 12 Harvard Latino Law Review 53 (Spring 2009) In defining national origin in workplace cases, courts have created distinctions between Latino workers who have immigration status or citizenship and those who do not. This doctrinal distinction does not reflect any actual social status differences based on immigration status among Latinos who live in the United States. Yet it has served to create... 2009 Yes
Rodolfo F. Acuña On Pedagogy 12 Harvard Latino Law Review 7 (Spring 2009) Most academic fields evolve from mainstream disciplines; they gradually develop paradigms and methodologies that separate them from their mother disciplines.

Jacquelyn Bridgeman , Gracie Lawson-Borders , Margaret Zamudio Representative Democracy in Rural America: Race, Gender, and Class Through a Localism Lens 8 Seattle Journal for Social Justice 81 (Fall/Winter 2009) Political history is often made during presidential election cycles.

Juan Carlos Linares Si Se Puede? Chicago Latinos Speak on Law, the Law School Experience and the Need for an Increased Latino Bar 2 DePaul Journal for Social Justice 321 (Spring 2009) When I arrived home that night, I found my mother sobbing uncontrollably on the floor. She collected herself enough to tell me that they had taken Augie, my younger brother, away in handcuffs; that he was a suspect in a murder. I was a freshman in college at the time. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whom to turn to. We were powerless in... 2009 Yes
