This article addresses the ways in which the experiences of immigrant youth and families in u.S. Schools and society have been conceptualized primarily as conflicts between immigrant cultures and dominant u.S. Culture. Exemplified by the discourse of culture clash or of immigrants being torn between two worlds, this prevalent understanding structures the experiences, cultures, and identities of immigrants as unchanging and fixed in time. This article illustrates the ways that culture and identity are constructed within the double movement of discourse and representation. It offers examples of how dominant representations create simplistic understandings of the identities of immigrant youth, as well as the ways youth are constructing new identities.
