Description

"No words can express all that I think and feel about this beautiful, brilliant book. By listening carefully with both her heart and mind to what young members of mixed-status families say, and don’t say, about im/migration in school, Ariana Mangual Figueroa shows these girls’ depth of understanding about complex social issues that matter deeply for their families. Narrated in innovative ways with the utmost of care, with rich analyses of language data and thought-provoking insights drawn from a longitudinal and intimate ethnographic research relationship, Knowing Silence will surely make you think, wonder, laugh, cry, and see/hear young people who are growing up in contexts of immigration in new ways."—Marjorie Faulstich Orellana, UCLA

 

"Knowing Silence explores how middle-school children navigate their juridical status, revealing immigration as a taboo in schools. Using child-centered methodologies, Ariana Mangual Figueroa unveils the critical yet often invisible aspects of students' lives and highlights unintended chilling effects of school practices. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this is an important and compelling contribution to the field."—Carola Suárez-Orozco, Harvard Graduate School of Education
