Our research will focus on raciolinguistics within the Spanish language, as well as for Spanish speakers in the United States. Particularly, we will investigate the implications of being of Latinx heritage in the United States and how this affects social conditions within the educational and political sectors. In addition, we will analyze the relatively new word “Latinx” and the social movement created around the word as a dismissal of the gendered terms “Latino” and “Latina” typically used to categorize people from Latin America. We will also look at the subsequent countermovement against the term “Latinx." Finally, we will discuss how Spanish speakers’ various identities, including race, sex, and gender, combine in society and contribute to their experiences.
