This chapter exposes forms of resistance. From claiming an identity, playing with stereotypes, to defying typification, students creatively carve out their sense of selves and challenge others’ perceptions. Organizationally, a smaller group of students and teachers create alternative campus spaces in classroom and through the student organization MEChA that are inclusive, oppositional, or overly political.
