WEEK 6 THE DEVIL BEHIND THE MIRROR CHAPTER 5
Race, Identity, and the Body Politic
An illegal person cannot produce a legal person
Gerard Avin was a masterful raconteur
(a person who is skilled in relating stories and anecdotes interestingly), and used his
narratives to craft relationships with potential clients for his guided tour business
Gerard was also a man who made his living on the illicit fringes of the tourism
industry, questions of power, difference, and global economic change were of as much
interest to Gerard as they were to me, and certainly more pressing
This chapter is also a meditation on the relationship of the racialized subject to
power, on the slippery dialect between subjection and agency, and on the discourses,
practices, and bodies through which subjection is channelled and mediated
Gerards struggle was economic: the ever pressing problem of making a living under
circumstances that were anything but favourable
Power, Knowledge, and the Crafting of Subjectivity
Gerard states the Boca Chica is his prison, so to escape, he needs to marry
someone outside of the country
Lively black market in Boca Chica, making it possible for people to attend public
schools and qualify for other public services
The stimulation and dissimulation of identity was not only a strategy for
establishing and negotiating citizenship rights but also a modality of practice
through which they claimed disparate forms of social and cultural capital and
attachments to the global order
As identity (racial, ethnic, and linguistic) was linked to social mobility, both real and
imagined, its crafting was a status-bearing claim to prestige and prerogatives across
the hierarchical landscape of the zona turistica and the world beyond
Gerard had positioned himself as a Dominican on the side of the law, demonstrating
his skill at manipulating the linguistic and visual cues by which people recognized
ethnic identities
Object lessons in the ethics of solidarity and reciprocity informing the social
relations and exchanges among Haitians in Boca Chica

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
