ABSTRACT El trabajo pasa revista a algunas teorizaciones y estudios empíricos que muestran la necesidad de reelaborar la conceptualización de la pertenencia étnica de una forma compleja, más sensible a los fenómenos de contacto, hibridación y comunicación propios de la dinámica cultural que a supuestos esencialismos categoriales.

    ABSTRACT: As whites become increasingly distant in generations and time from their immigrant ancestors, the tendency to distort, or remember selectively, one's ethnic origins increases. Distortions and inconsistencies in ethnic reporting are shown to vary with age, educational attainment, and marital status and even to exist within families when parents report the ethnic ancestry of their children. These examples of inconsistency, simplification, and systematic distortion all demonstrate the flux of the ethnic categories among white Americans. It is concluded that ethnic categories are social phenomena that over the long run are constantly being redefined and reformulated.
