Example text

As I recount in chapter six, this sometimes was directly relevant to themes and issues I was investigating, as when the teachers would ask me to speak to them in English as a means of showing their students that they could talk “real” English with a native speaker. Because the teachers’ relationship with the ideology of native speakerism is something I was exploring, my interaction with the teacher became part of what I was studying. In the appendix, I offer a fuller exploration of the researcher’s identity and positionality in ethnographic work, and detailed description of the fieldwork and analysis.

A guy from Carlos’ village was heading back to Oaxaca, and Carlos got his place in the apartment and his job loading crates of dishes and cups onto trailers at a warehouse. Everyone who worked in the loading area was an undocumented immigrant, and Carlos found he had hardly any access to English speakers (cf. Norton [2000] for a discussion that problematizes immigrants’ access to the dominant language; and also Ullman [2004], who argues that in fact English skills are not particularly relevant for most recently arrived undocumented Mexicans).

Water shortages, environmental degradation, the encroachment of the city into outlying farmlands, and competition from commercial-scale farmers have continuously eroded the ability of Oaxacan families to maintain themselves on subsistence farming (Grimes, 1998; Murphy & Stepick, 1991). Although Carlos’ father still maintains a yunta (team) of oxen and several milpas (cornfields), he also works now as a security guard at the local water-bottling plant. ) In many Oaxacan communities, these factors increase the pressure for out-migration northwards (Cohen, 2004).
