It also explores the political and social ramifications of visual imagery for women of color, and the political consciousness that can emerge.

Homegirls in the Public Sphere
"A wonderful methodological dose of salts for anyone doing research 'on' so-called pariah populations... A book about the field experiences of a woman of color with women of color is virtually unique..."

 Homegirls in the Public Sphere

By Marie "Keta" Miranda

Miranda, Marie "Keta"  (2003). Homegirls in the Public Sphere. Austin: University of Texas Press.

Girls in gangs are usually treated as objects of public criticism and rejection. Seldom are they viewed as objects worthy of understanding and even more rarely are they allowed to be active subjects who craft their own public persona—which is what makes this work unique. In this book, Marie "Keta" Miranda presents the results of an ethnographic collaboration with Chicana gang members, in which they contest popular and academic representations of Chicana/o youth and also construct their own narratives of self identity through a documentary film, It's a Homie Thang!
