Alex and the Hobo: A Chicano Life and Story

Alex and the Hobo: A Chicano Life and Story

José Inez Taylor, James M. Taggart "Alex and the Hobo: A Chicano Life and Story"
Publisher: University of Texas Press 2003 | 222 Pages | ISBN: 0292781792 | PDF | 1.7 MB

"This book represents a significant contribution to the discipline in that it raises important issues of ethnographic authority and authorship. . . . Indeed, it could serve as a model for new ways to write ethnography." –Miguel Díaz-Barriga, Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, Swarthmore College When a ten-year-old boy befriends a mysterious hobo in his southern Colorado hometown in the early 1940s, he learns about evil in his community and takes his first steps toward manhood by attempting to protect his new friend from corrupt officials. Though a fictional story, Alex and the Hobo is written out of the life experiences of its author, José Inez (Joe) Taylor, and it realistically portrays a boy's coming-of-age as a Spanish-speaking man who must carve out an honorable place for himself in a class-stratified and Anglo-dominated society. In this innovative ethnography, anthropologist James Taggart collaborates with Joe Taylor to explore how Alex and the Hobo sprang from Taylor's life experiences and how it presents an insider's view of Mexicano culture and its constructions of manhood. They frame the story (included in its entirety) with chapters that discuss how it encapsulates notions that Taylor learned from the Chicano movement, the farmworkers' union, his community, his father, his mother, and his religion. Taggart gives the ethnography a solid theoretical underpinning by discussing how the story and Taylor's account of how he created it represent an act of resistance to the class system that Taylor perceives as destroying his native culture.

After Life

After Life
Publisher: Simon Funk | ISBN: N\A | edition 2006 | PDF | 160 pages | 1,19 mb

The book is written in first-person, through the eyes of the main character, Alex Harris, PhD. Alex has just figured out how to transfer one’s consciousness from a biological brain into a man-made computer. He performs the procedure on himself, and as a result, the entire world is changed. Perhaps the most significant change, though, occurs in Alex’s own consciousness. After transferring his consciousness to a machine, Alex experiences a series of unusual events. Some of these events seem like dreams, and some seem all too real. At first, the experiences are very puzzling to the reader (and to Alex himself), and don’t make sense. But as the story unfolds, the pieces fall into place and produce a very mind-blowing cohesive picture.
