The experiences of many Chicana/os and Latino/as from communities in the United States that came to Mexico in the second half of the twentieth century as university-level exchange students or to study for a determined period of time as foreign exchange students were, to say it in a friendly way, disappointing. Many arrived with the illusion and intention of “returning home” and “reconnecting” with their roots, their culture, their history, and their “people.” They sought in the universities or research centers where they were enrolled or carrying out research, an academic community interested in their themes and projects, but more than that, they sought interlocutors at the political, intellectual and cultural level with respect to the Chicana/o world in the United States. Unfortunately for those generations, very few people, if anyone, were interested in Chicano studies, or Chicanos in general, with some exceptions that I will address.
