    Title:  A Case Study: Science Identity Formation of Mexican American Females in High School Chemistry
    Abstract:   Mexican Americans are noticeably underrepresented in physical science fields. The purpose of this study was to explore the possible association between Mexican American female high school chemistry students’ social and educational experiences in chemistry and science and their development (or rejection) of a science identity, that is, seeing themselves as future scientists. The all-encompassing theoretical frameworks were mestiza/o psychology, multicultural feminism, Chicana feminism, and identity based upon situated cognition. The researchers used in-depth interviews, classroom observations, and a focus group. From the data, five important identities emerged: ethnic, gender, college, science, and student. These identities influenced how the students conceptualized their social and educational experiences in chemistry and science. Regarding attitudes and aspirations in science, there was a relationship among college, science, and student identities. Having a personal connection to a successful member within a science community of practice was paramount to the young women’s self-perception as potential members of the science community.

    Title:  Ant Medicine: A Narrative Ecology
    Abstract:   This autohistoria of Ant medicine conveys how knowledge comes alive in the life of a knowledge keeper of traditional medicine. Ant medicine manifests not only as remedies but also as part of ceremonies, stories, and symbols that reflect ecological knowledge. The Ant knowledge reflects lived experiences in the environment, which include curing ceremonies, growing corn and gardening, and creation stories. Ant knowledge emanates from a co-creative relationship in which human beings learn from the natural world and make meaning from their environment; similarly, Ants are co-creators of knowledge, reflecting the living intelligence of the natural world. Ant medicine includes cures for physical and spiritual imbalances, as well as instructions on communality and interconnectedness for establishing balance in the social life of human beings.
