Abstract

This article explores how young people (aged 8–18) of Latin American descent living in the north of England negotiate sameness and belonging within a context of socio-cultural invisibility (sparse presence of Latin Americans). It is argued that these young people, who are characterised by a diversity of marked and
unmarked embodiments, use in/visibility strategies in order to navigate the visual regime of ethno-cultural difference which characterises their integration context. With these strategies, they either reproduce notions of sameness or enact forms of cultural diversity to gain membership to the places where they live.
